Llano County Sex Crimes Defense Attorney

Blanco County criminal lawyer for sexual offenses

Lawyer for Sexual Assault, Prostitution, and Other Sex Offenses in Llano, Marble Falls, and Fredericksburg

While all criminal charges should be taken seriously, certain types of offenses can be particularly damaging to a person's life and reputation. Sex crimes are especially serious, since in addition to facing penalties such as fines and jail time, a person may be required to register as a sex offender, and they may suffer harm to their personal relationships, their reputation, and their career. Those who have been accused of committing sex-related offenses will need to work with a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer to determine the best ways to address these situations.

The Law Office of Russ Alan Baker, PLLC provides legal help and representation in multiple types of criminal cases. Attorney Baker has been representing clients for over 16 years, and he has helped people in Central Texas defend against a wide variety of criminal charges. With his experience as an aggressive litigator, he can ensure that those who have been accused of committing sex crimes will have the representation they need inside the courtroom and when working to protect their public reputation.

Defense Against Sex Crime Charges

Anyone who has been accused of committing sexual offenses will need to understand the nature of the specific charges they may be facing, as well as the potential penalties of a conviction. Texas law defines multiple types of sex crimes, including:

  • Sexual assault - Any acts of sexual intercourse or sexual contact that are committed without a person's consent may result in second-degree felony charges. If a person is accused of inflicting bodily injury, threatening to injure or kill someone, using a deadly weapon, or using a "date rape" drug while committing sexual assault, they may be charged with aggravated sexual assault, which is a first-degree felony.
  • Prostitution - A person may be charged with this offense if they offer to engage in sexual conduct in return for payment or offer to pay another person to engage in sexual conduct. This offense is usually charged as a misdemeanor. Other related offenses, such as promotion of prostitution or compelling prostitution, may result in felony charges.
  • Voyeurism and invasive visual recordings - A person may face misdemeanor charges if they observe another person for the purposes of gratifying their sexual desires while the person is in a private dwelling or a place where they have a reasonable expectation of privacy. If a person takes photos or videos of a person's intimate parts without their consent, they may face felony charges for creating an invasive visual recording. Disclosure of an intimate visual recording without a person's consent (commonly referred to as "revenge porn") may also result in felony charges.
  • Indecent exposure - A person may face misdemeanor charges if they are accused of exposing their genitals to someone else for the purposes of gratifying sexual desire. A person may be charged with public lewdness, a misdemeanor offense, if they engage in sexual intercourse or sexual contact in a public place.
  • Child-related sexual offenses - Sex crimes involving children will often result in serious felony charges. These offenses may include child sex abuse, child trafficking, solicitation of a minor, indecency with a child, sexual performance by a child, improper relationships between teachers and students, or possession or distribution of child pornography.
