Having a nice date night out or even sleeping with someone new can go horribly wrong if you're suddenly accused of a sexual offense the following morning. Even if you've done nothing wrong and someone cries wolf, the implication that you may be a sex offender can cause your reputation to suffer within social circles, at work and at home.
If you're convicted of a crime, you could end up on a sex offender list for life, and that can impact you in a variety of ways that you shouldn't have to deal with. In Texas, there are several kinds of sexual offenses that can land you on a sexual predator or sex offender list. Some of these include things like date rape, aggravated sexual assault, child pornography or the solicitation of a minor on the Internet.
These crimes need to be taken seriously, both for your sake and the sake of the alleged victim. However, as the accused, you do have the right to defend yourself and to make sure you're not unfairly tried for your alleged crimes. There are two sides to every story.
With a strong defense plan, you can point out how the situation isn't as it seems, so you can have a better chance of leaving court without a conviction. Besides a conviction impacting your ability to get a job or live where you want to, it's embarrassing, and you shouldn't have to live with it.
