Cooke County Date Rape and Prostitution Defense Attorneys

Cooke County, TX Criminal Defense Attorney for Sexual Offenses Including Date Rape and Prostitution

No other types of crimes are stigmatized like sex offenses. Being convicted of a sex crime can ruin your life, and the consequences will continue to affect you even long after any legal punishment is over with. Depending on what you are convicted of, you could be forced to register as a sex offender. This registry is public, and people - parents especially - do check it. Even the victimless sex crime of prostitution can leave an insurmountable mark on your record. Employers are rarely willing to hire people with sex crimes on their records, and even finding housing can be extremely difficult.

At Marsala Law Group, we defend those accused of sex crimes without being judgmental. You are facing quite enough of that already. Whatever you may or may not have done, you have rights, and we will fight to protect them. Our attorneys put their best efforts into each and every representation.

Legal Representation for Those Accused of Prostitution

Sex work has become increasingly ubiquitous in our society with the rise of online platforms facilitating the sale of sexual materials, and sometimes, sex itself. The line between legal and illegal forms of sex work can be quite blurred. As you may know, it is not difficult to walk into a situation that leaves you vulnerable to a prostitution arrest. A first prostitution offense is generally a Class B misdemeanor, carrying a potential sentence of up to six months in jail or a $2,000 fine.

Defense Attorneys for Sex Crimes Involving Minors

Few crimes are so looked down upon as sex offenses that involve children. These allegations are incredibly serious, and they are almost invariably charged as felonies.

There is virtually no way to get a "fresh start" after this type of conviction, and prison time is to be expected. These crimes include:

There are ways to put forth strong defenses, and Marsala Law Group is well-versed in their use. Our attorneys will zealously represent you when you are facing these types of serious and life-altering charges.

Date Rape Defense Attorneys in Gainesville

Date rape can be an extraordinarily complicated allegation. Everything from your job or education to your housing and reputation are on the line the moment you are accused, even if the accusation is false or erroneous. The use of drugs or alcohol is often a factor. In Texas, date rape is prosecuted simply as sexual assault - typically a second-degree felony, punishable by two to 10 years in prison. We promise to treat you the way you are constitutionally entitled to be treated - as innocent until proven guilty.

Cooke County Law Firm for Help With Sexual Assault Charges

The mere accusation that you have committed sexual assault against someone can have a drastic effect on your life. Marsala Law Group understands that the potential criminal penalties are just the start of the consequences. Your defense is beyond important when so much is on the line.

Aggravated sexual assault is an enhanced form of a sexual assault or statutory rape charge. Aggravating factors that can lead to this charge include:

  • Use of a weapon
  • Violence or threat of violence
  • Elderly or disabled victim
  • Victim under 14 years old
  • Use of date rape drugs

Because both the requisite offense and the aggravating factor must be proven, there are multiple defense strategies our attorneys can employ in these cases.
