Dallas Sex Crime Attorney
Lawyer Handling Sex Crime Charges
If you are being investigated for or have been accused of a sex crime, it is imperative that you seek representation from a skilled
Dallas sex crime defense attorney. When police suspect that you have committed a sexual offense, they will use aggressive tactics to obtain a confession from you. Additionally, they will conduct investigations that may span the course of months which will not only invade your personal privacy, but also damage your reputation amongst your family, friends, peers and community. With the stakes being so high, you cannot afford to forgo representation from an experienced sex crimes defense lawyer. A lawyer can safeguard your privacy during investigations, prevent you from answering police questions that may compromise your case and counterattack insufficient evidence or unreliable allegations.
When you consider the extreme and lasting consequences that a sex crime conviction and lifetime registration as a sex offender may have on your life, it is easy to see why one must take immediate action and exercise his or her right to legal counsel.
Aggressive, dedicated, and accomplished attorneys comprise our legal team at the D'Amore Law Firm. Tom D'Amore, the firm's lead attorney, was a highly successful prosecutor for 19 years before moving into private practice as a criminal defense attorney. His past work experience provides important contacts, a unique perspective on each case, and invaluable knowledge about the prosecution's methods and mode of operation. He is one of the few attorneys who can honestly assert personal and professional relationships across the board. Judges, prosecutors, and police officers alike respect him and many have worked with him personally. It is entirely possible that Attorney D'Amore taught your arresting officer or supervised the prosecuting attorney. These relationships allow him to build a defense with more information than he might otherwise be able to obtain. Furthermore, negotiations may be improved by the fact that he is well-known for his moxie, honesty, and unremitting protection of his clients.
Sex Crimes: Our Practice Areas
People who have been charged with a sex offense need reliable representation from a trusted Dallas sex crime defense lawyer. At our firm, we are dedicated to helping our clients fight their sex crime charges and allegations. We know that each case deserves personal attention from an experienced defense attorney, a thorough and detailed investigation of the situation in which you were arrested, and a well thought out and aggressively presented defense. There are unfortunately too many situations in which people are convicted because they did not have effective representation, because they were not advised by an attorney early enough in the process, or because their attorney was not able to have unlawfully obtained evidence declared inadmissible. Our mission is to ensure that this never happens to one of our clients.
We represent clients who have been accused of, charged with or are under investigation for virtually any type of sexual offense. This includes cases in state, federal and juvenile court. We do not shy away from even the most complex or serious sex crime cases as we believe that every defendant deserves the most aggressive defense. Accusations or criminal charges are not proof of guilt. Every defendant has the right to due process and should be protected to the fullest extent, particularly when you consider the tendency for false or exaggerated allegations in the realm of sex offenses.
When you are charged with a child abuse crime, you will face persecution not only from law enforcement but also society as a whole. Child abuse involves the physical, mental or sexual abuse of a person below the legal age of 18 (a minor). If you have been accused of
sex with a minor, you could actually end up being charged with
statutory rape or
sexual assault. The age of consent in Texas is 17, and the "three year rule" in Texas states that sexual acts between two persons who are within three years of age of each other cannot be charged with criminal statutory rape. Our firm also assists those who have been charged with other crimes involving minors, such as
child pornography and
child molestation. If you are found to be guilty of
rape with someone other than a minor, you will still face months to years in prison. Another type of rape charge,
date rape, is also charged as a felony in the state of Texas.
Some of the types of cases our Dallas firm can handle include, but are not limited to exploitation,
internet sex crimes,
lewd conduct and
prostitution. We also represent those who have been accused of a
failure to register as a sex offender.
