Denton Sexual Assault Attorney — Fighting for Your Future

When you have been charged with a sex crime

Few criminal charges have as lasting an impact on your life and reputation as a sex-related crime. Even during a trial, where you are supposed to be presumed innocent, you are likely to find yourself facing particularly hostile prosecution and publicity. At Buchanan and Meyer Attorneys, we are not here to judge you — we are here to protect your rights. Our sexual assault defense attorneys in Tarrant and Denton Counties aggressively fight to have charges dropped or reduced, and to win a not-guilty verdict if your case goes to trial.

The most serious sexual crimes generally result in felony charges and, if you are found guilty, prison time. They include:

  • Rape (including date and spousal rape)
  • Sexual assault
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Aggravated kidnapping (with intent to sexually violate)
  • Child molestation
  • Online solicitation of a minor
  • Possession or promotion of child pornography
  • Improper relationship between an educator and a student
  • Prostitution
  • Aggravated promotion of prostitution, or compelling prostitution

If you are convicted of a sex crime, your name is published in the Denton County Registered Sex Offenders List, which is then shared with state and national registries. As a result, you may have difficulty finding housing and employment, or even retaining your privacy.

Championing your reputation

There are also charges that you might consider more embarrassing or foolish than criminal. But Texas considers them crimes. Unless you aggressively fight these charges, you may still do time in jail, pay hefty fines and have to live with a clouded record and embarrassing publicity. Such charges include:

  • Public lewdness (which includes having sex in a public place — not all that uncommon in a college community)
  • Indecent exposure
  • Improper photography or visual recording (which can range from sexting to recording and broadcasting images of your roommate having sex)
  • Solicitation of a prostitute
  • Obscene display or distribution
  • Obscenity
  • Sale, distribution or display of harmful material to a minor
  • Employment harmful to children (which can include sexually suggestive advertising)
