If You’re Charged with a Sex Crime
Being accused of a sex crime can ruin a person’s life. Friends, family and the public may begin to judge you before knowing all of the facts. It can feel like you are being presumed guilty instead of being innocent until proven guilty beyond all reasonable doubt. At Madrid Law, our Houston sex crime criminal defense attorneys fight hard to protect our clients’ legal rights and their reputations, jobs and families.
Sentences for Texas Sex Crimes
Being convicted of a sex crime may require you to register as a sex offender, may affect where you can live and work, and may affect your ability to associate with children.
Sex crimes often carry potential sentences that include years of incarceration. Sometimes people are falsely accused of sex crimes because of a misunderstanding, or sometimes false allegations of sex crimes happen in divorces or child custody cases.

Evidence in Houston Sex Cases
Properly collecting and preserving evidence is extremely important in sex cases. It is very easy for a person to make allegations of a sex offense, but an experienced sex crimes lawyer can help you investigate, preserve important evidence and protect your rights. Sex cases often hinge on forensic evidence such as DNA, hair samples, blood samples, saliva, fiber evidence or computer evidence.
The methods used by police or other investigators is critical.
If investigators or laboratories did not follow the proper procedures, such evidence may have been illegally obtained, contaminated or corrupted and may be inadmissible in court. Only an experienced sex crimes trial lawyer has the knowledge and skills to adequately defend these cases and get illegal evidence excluded from court.
