Sex crimes in Texas involve a number of different offenses, from the misdemeanor offense of indecent exposure to the felony crime of aggravated sexual assault. Sex crime punishments will range depending on the facts of the case, the consent of the victim, and the actions of the accused.
Sex crimes encompass a broad definition which include the following felony offenses:
Continuous sexual abuse of a child
Indecency with a child
Failure to register as a sex offender in Texas
Sex crimes further include the following misdemeanor offenses:
Rape, referred to in Texas statutes as “sexual assault,” is considered by Texas law to be an especially heinous crime, which exposes the accused to extremely severe penalties, some of which last a lifetime. The Texas Penal Code defines sexual assault as:
Sexual intercourse or sexual penetration without the victim’s consent.
Sexual activity involving a person incapable of consenting to it because of mental incapacity or disability.
Sexual intercourse, penetration, or other sexual contacts with a minor under the age of 17, even if consensual (“statutory rape”).
Forcible and violent sexual intercourse, penetration, or contact, regardless of consent.
Coercion of someone to perform or submit to sexual acts.
Sexual acts with a person over whom the accused is in a position of power or for whose care the accused is responsible, such as a teacher, healthcare provider, member of the clergy, staff of a residence where the victim lives, police officer, or other public servants.
The difference between misdemeanor and felony sex crime offenses sometimes may be based on one person’s word or the arresting officer’s interpretation of events. Therefore, it is important to speak with a sex crime attorney in Houston shortly after your arrest to ensure that your version of events will be relayed during any court proceedings.
Defenses to Sexual Assault Charges to Protect Your Freedom, Your Reputation, and Your Future
The police had no probable cause to arrest you for the crime.
Evidence against you was obtained illegally.
You were wrongly identified as the rapist;
You could not have committed the assault because you were elsewhere, i.e., you have an alibi;
DNA evidence shows that you were not the person responsible for the crime.
The alleged assault was in the course of providing medical care for a child, and there was no contact or penetration of the child’s mouth, anus, or sexual organ by your mouth, anus, or sexual organ.
The alleged victim consented to the sexual act;
You were insane or mentally incapacitated;
You lacked the intent to commit the crime
The sooner we start advocating for you, the better the odds that you will beat the charges or obtain a less severe penalty.
I was facing prison time and Mary was able to get me deferred adjudication. She was very extremely patient with me, carefully explaining the law regarding my case. She was always professional and I was not the most desirable client.
If I am ever in need of a criminal defense lawyer again, there is no doubt that it will be Mary Conn.
Bob, Criminal Defense Client
She always believed me when I said I was innocent.
I was arrested at school during my senior year of high school September 2010 and charged with Capital Murder (multi). Mary Conn took on my case in the Summer of 2014. She always believed me when I said I was innocent and promised to fight for me til the end.
Mary Conn did just that. I walked out of the Harris County jail on July 2, 2015 after a jury of my peers could not find me guilty.

Best attorney around!!! A++++ FI-1 FIRST PAROLE!!!
I hired Ms. Conn to represent my husband on his first parole review. My husband had a 35 year sentence for a serious crime, and was a parole violator.
Ms. Conn walked me through the process of parole from the beginning until the end. Ms. Conn and I personally appeared before the Board Member voting on my husbands release. My husband was home in my arms 32 days later!!! Can I say more???? This is the attorney you need to hire!!!!”
