Charges of Sexual Assault

Accusations of sexual assault in Georgetown can be a very difficult experience, especially if the alleged offender lacked any intent to commit the offense against the alleged victim. Anyone convicted of a sexual assault offense in Texas can face severe penalties, including jail or prison time, steep fines, a requirement of to registering as a sex offender, a criminal record, and a negative impact on the alleged offender’s reputation.

Allegations of sexual assault or sexual abuse do not have to result in a conviction. The state prosecutor must prove you committed every element to the sexual assault beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a very difficult burden of proof to meet, and any doubt in the mind of the judge or jury can lead to a reduction or a complete dismissal of the charges. Therefore, it is important to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney who will make every effort to create your best legal strategy.
