Understanding Your Charges

In Texas, sexual assault charges vary widely. The severity of the alleged offense and the corresponding penalties depend on a number of factors, including whether or not force was allegedly used to commit the offense, the degree of force allegedly used, the relationship between the alleged perpetrator and the victim, whether or not the victim sustained injuries and what type of injuries the victim sustained, and the age of both the alleged perpetrator and the victim.

At the Law Office of Derek W. Emmons, P.C., we defend people who have been charged with:

  • Rape
  • Date rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Statutory rape
  • Child sexual assault
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Child molestation

Regardless of the specific charges, sex crimes are serious offenses that cannot be taken lightly. The penalties for a conviction of a sex crime are severe and typically include lengthy prison terms, hefty fines, and mandatory registration on the Texas sexual offender register.

If you have been accused of a sex crime, it is important to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney before saying anything to the police. You have nothing to gain and everything to lose by speaking to the police without having a lawyer present.

Sexual Assault of a Child

The only thing more damaging and devastating than an allegation of sexual misconduct is an allegation involving a child. Child sexual assault carries great stigma in society, and defending these charges requires quick action, a decisive plan, and a detailed investigation of the claim.

As soon as the charges are filed, you are at risk of life-altering consequences. Even an allegation of sexual assault can result in you losing your job and/or losing access to your children. You may even possibly face a civil lawsuit. If you are convicted, you will be required to register as a sexual offender for the remainder of your life, which will affect your ability to find work and secure housing.

Due to the corrosive nature of sex crime allegations, it is vital that defendants retain the services of a professional, tenacious, and experienced attorney, such as Derek W. Emmons.

San Antonio sexual assault defense attorney Derek Emmons understands the importance of minimizing the penalties that come along with criminal sex charges.

Aggravated Sexual Assault in Texas

In certain cases, sexual assault charges can be progressed to aggravated sexual assault. Aggravated sexual assault usually involves a deadly weapon, such as a knife or a gun. Even in the absence of a weapon, if the assault included a threat to kill, rob, or rape, then it is considered an aggravated assault.

While you may be the victim of false accusations, it is imperative that you retain a reliable and trusted defense as soon as possible, as the penalties for aggravated sexual assault in Texas are incredibly severe. Aggravated sexual assault is one of the most serious crimes one can be charged with in the state of Texas, and convictions come with very harsh penalties, including long prison sentences.

If you are charged with aggravated sexual assault in San Antonio, Bexar County, or throughout Texas, you could be facing a first-degree felony, which carries a potential prison sentence of 5 to 99 years.
