Sex Crime Investigations
Being investigated, arrested, and/or prosecuted can be life-altering. When these crimes are as serious and as distastefully viewed by others as sex crimes, however, merely facing accusations and investigations can be devastating. With the potential to tarnish an accused individual’s reputation, personal life, and professional career, sex crime allegations of any type are among the most serious criminal allegations one can face.
Retain a Houston Criminal Attorney to Protect Your Rights
By being proactive and having a Houston defense lawyer on your side, you can ensure that your rights are not infringed upon by overzealous law enforcement officers and prosecutors eager to convict sex crime offenders. The American judicial system places great emphasis on every accused individual’s right to due process.
At the Law Offices of Billy Skinner, we work to ensure that due process is upheld for each of our clients. Should law enforcement officers or prosecutors infringe upon this right, it may prove as sufficient grounds to dismiss or significantly reduce charges before cases begin or reach trial.
No matter what the specific charge may be, it is critically important to work with a lawyer as soon as possible so that you can begin to collect and preserve the evidence in your favor. Many people may feel as though they do not need a lawyer during the investigation, but the investigation process is one of the most important stages of any case.
During sex crime cases, physical and forensic evidence are key to bolstering the prosecution’s case. As they also focus on testimony, you will often be asked to make statements. With an attorney by your side, you can ensure you do not say anything that can be used against you and you know precisely what your rights are during the investigation.
