Will I Have To Register As A Sex Offender?
Most individuals who have been convicted of a sex-related offense in Texas have to register themselves with the state. This is true even in some cases where the offense was relatively minor, involved consensual sex, or wherein there was no sexual contact at all with another person.
People who have had to register as sex offenders have compared the experience to "prison without bars." If you are registered, you are disallowed from living or working near areas with children, including daycare centers, schools, and playgrounds. You may also be prohibited from spending time with children — even relatives. With such high stakes, it is essential to retain a qualified defense attorney who knows how to reduce the punishments you may face and, when possible, find a means to de-register you.
Legal Support When You Need It Most
If you are being accused of a sex crime, do not accept any deal offered by a prosecutor until you have spoken with an experienced lawyer. Even a plea agreement that seems favorable could have lasting implications for your future.
