Austin Sex Crimes Lawyer
Defending Clients Charged With Sex Crimes in Travis County
Sex crime convictions carry lifelong consequences. Sexual assault, for example, is charged as a second-degree felony and can lead to 20 years in prison. Even more devastating, perhaps, is the lasting stigma that comes with a sex crime conviction. Many people assume that someone charged with a sex crime is automatically a rapist or a molester when that is just not true.
Unfavorable social opinions about sex offenders can make it very difficult to find and maintain stable work or housing due to social stigma. Convicted sex offenders are often harassed by the community in which they live, even though while some are dangerous, many are not. At Carroll Troberman, PLLC, we are backed by more than 30 years of experience in criminal defense.
