Atascosa County Attorneys for Sexual Offenses, Including Sexual Assault and Prostitution

The Texas legal system maintains harsh punishments for those convicted of sexual offenses. Both violent and non-violent crimes carry substantial incarceration and heavy fines, as well as registration as a sexual offender, all of which can devastate your family and ability to earn a living for the rest of your life.

Estimates indicate up to 10 percent of sexual assault allegations are false claims, and other sex crime charges can involve mistaken identity or false reports. If you stand accused of a sex crime, it is imperative you immediately enlist the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney. At Barrera, Cavazos & Powers, our lawyers include judges and former prosecutors who deliver an aggressive approach to defend your rights and achieve a favorable outcome.

Many different acts are covered by the sexual offenses designation. Some involve physical assault, while others contain no physical contact. 

Sexual crimes charged as a felony include:

  • Sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault

Misdemeanor sex crimes include:

Sex Crime Defense Strategy

With a complete investigation of all evidence and statements to the police, we can determine the best course of action in your case. If you believe an assault allegation is baseless because consent was never in question, or that you were set up by a former romantic partner who is attempting to sway your divorce or child custody proceedings, we will work tirelessly to prove it in court.

When you face serious charges and the immense emotional pressure involved, it can be easy to forget you are innocent until proven guilty. Regardless of the charges you face, with Barrera, Cavazos & Powers, you will have a dedicated defense team on your side throughout the legal process.
