Fight Serious Sex Crime Charges And Preserve Your Good Name

Sex crime charges of any degree have the potential to wreck your life almost instantaneously. This is especially true in situations where sexual assault and rape are alleged to have occurred. Mere accusations of these serious offenses may cause you to lose your job, the trust of your family and your hard-earned reputation just because of the social stigma these allegations carry.

I'm R. Todd Bennett, and as a Houston sexual assault charge attorney with more than 20 years of legal experience, I know how to protect your rights, freedom and reputation. My dedication to my clients and my commitment to the highest standards of legal excellence have led to many accolades — such as being AV Preeminent peer-review rated* through Martindale-Hubbell (the highest rating) and being named in Best Lawyers in America.** More importantly, though, the skills and knowledge that have led to this recognition have allowed me to protect my clients' rights and achieve many favorable results in sex crime cases and other serious criminal matters.

It is important that the attorney you choose has an inside understanding of prosecutorial tactics and how prosecutors will pursue sexual assault and rape charges. As a former Harris County prosecutor, I have extensive experience as both a prosecution and defense attorney and know how to build powerful cases that counter prosecutors' arguments and preserve my clients' innocence.

Consequences Of A Sex Crime Conviction

It is important that you take accusations and charges of sexual assault, rape and other sex crimes seriously. Consequences of a conviction for sex offenses include:

  • Possible lifetime imprisonment
  • A criminal record that will follow you for the remainder of your life
  • Being labeled as a felon
  • Lifelong sex offender registration
  • Facing social stigma and alienation from the community

Additionally, you will be subject to a litany of legal restrictions that define where you may live and work regardless of what county or state you live in. Texas law is extremely harsh on sex offenders, and you need to realize that your entire future is at stake and you may face exceptionally severe punishments.
