False Claims of Sexual Assault/Rape in Houston
When a person is convicted of a sex crime, sexual assault, rape, or a sex offender violation, they can face long stints in the prison system if convicted. Keep in mind that the State of Texas takes pride in locking people up and throwing away the key. This is especially true when it comes to sex crimes and cases involving child pornography.
When an adult is accused of sexual assault by a child, people assume they’re guilty because they feel that “the child has no reason to lie”, but they do. It happened to me. My nephew somehow came up with the idea that I sodomized him, while the claim never reached law enforcement, I was left to wonder how it might have turned out if my family didn’t trust me. I’m not a homosexual and I don’t come off as such, but still, I’m glad they trusted me. My biggest concern was, did something happen to him? How did learn of such actions? Oh well, that’s another story for another day.
But yes, children do lie. All the time.
The Many Consequences of Sex Crimes
Aside from being convicted, jailed, and stuck with a criminal record that states “you’re a sexual deviant”, you’ll also lose the respect of all the people around you, and life in the civilized world presents new levels of difficulty. When a person is accused of sexual assault, regardless of evidence or even if a person has been formally charged yet, the presumption of guilt rears it’s ugly head, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Even if you’re innocent.
If you’re ever accused of a sexual offense, contact a sex crimes lawyer in Texas that knows what he’s doing. You can win! Felony offenses are vigorously prosecuted in Texas.
