Fort Worth Tarrant County Sex Crime Attorney
You can be accused of a sex crime out of spite, the desire for revenge or for any number of improper reasons. In some cases, a marital partner going through a divorce will say that a sex crime has been committed in order to advance their own agenda and try to gain leverage in the proceedings. If you are found guilty, the consequences can alter the course of your life and that of your loved ones.
Penalties for sex crimes can consist of fines up to $10,000 and multiple years of incarceration. Rape, child pornography, lewd and lascivious acts and sexual battery are all felony crimes. One of the most haunting penalties is being forever labeled as a sex offender. If this occurs, you will have to register and be tracked regardless of where you live.
At Ron Kovach, the defense of your case starts with a complete investigation into what occurred and the evidence, or lack thereof, that law enforcement and prosecutors will rely on. A proven Fort Worth criminal defense lawyer will look for improper police conduct, lack of evidence or any weakness that can be exploited to your advantage. Whether it is through negotiation or litigation, our goal is to get your charges dismissed when possible or reduced. At times, a reduction in charge can bring your case down to a misdemeanor and make the penalties you face much more manageable.
