Houston Sex Crime Lawyer
Criminal Defense for Sex Crime Charges in Harris County & Statewide
Dealing with a sex crime charge can result in fears of not just a lengthy prison sentence but many other results as well. The collateral consequences of a conviction are in many ways worse - lifetime registration on the sex offender list and the ostracism of friends, co-workers and even family members. You need a strong and effective defense effort.
At The Law Offices of Jed Silverman, we believe everyone accused of a crime deserves the strongest defense possible. We aggressively defend the rights and freedom of Texans accused of all types of sex crimes.
We recognize the sensitive nature of these cases and utilize our experience to protect our clients' interests.
Types of Cases We Can Defend Against
As Attorney Silverman is a Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist (TBLS), we are able to represent clients facing all types of sex crime allegations, from non-registerable offenses to the most serious felony or federal crimes. Examples of the cases we handle include:
Handling False Accusations
In some communities, being accused of a sex crime is as bad as being convicted. Guilt or innocence no longer matter. The false allegations cast doubt that may never go away. Getting to the bottom of the allegations and fighting to keep the charges off of your official record are critical to protecting your future. If you have been falsely accused, get the legal help you need as soon as possible.
At The Law Offices of Jed Silverman, we have seen nearly every type of false allegation, as well as every reason for one. Oftentimes, a child makes an accusation after being coached by a parent involved in a custody battle or bitter divorce. Unfortunately, it's a common practice that works too often. Sometimes, a victim is simply confused about the nature of a personal relationship or its intentions. Other times, mental illness may play a role in the false allegations.
Attorney Jed Silverman has a strong record of protecting people who have faced false accusations of sex offenses. Our Houston law firm knows how to investigate beneath the surface of the allegations, to get to the real evidence and motivation for the charges. Keeping your reputation and your record clear is our number one priority. We work aggressively to get the charges dropped and have your name cleared.
