There are a number of different offenses that are classified as sex offenses and have the potential for resulting in sex offender registration. If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense of a sexual nature, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who has in-depth knowledge of Texas sex registry laws.
At the Shapiro Law Firm, we have been protecting the rights of people accused of sex crimes for more than 40 years. We are one of the most well-established and prominent criminal defense law firms in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex region. Our attorneys have taken active roles in shaping case law regarding sex registration.
Local Knowledge of Collin County Prosecutors
When we defend a client in a sex crime, our primary focus is to fight to dismiss charges or to get the charges reduced to an offense that will not require registration on the sex offender registry. Often, for cases involving a first-time offender, we try to work with the prosecutor to find a sanctioned counseling class or community service, as part of a deferred adjudicated program. Upon successful completion of the class or service during a probationary period, the offense can be dismissed with no conviction, sometimes bypassing the requirement for registration on the sex offender registry. Knowing what the local prosecutors in Collin County expect as a plea agreement is a critical component of effective defense.
Our firm handles all matters related to Texas sex offender registration, including:
- Juvenile sex offender cases and declassification from the sex offender registry
- Sexual assault of a child
- Child pornography
- Internet sex crimes involving a minor
- Failure to register upon changing addresses
- Failure to notify the local police that you are in their jurisdiction
- Registry decertification process
- Removal of a misdemeanor sex offense
