The Internet sex crime lawyers at Rush & Gransee, L.C., take their jobs seriously when it comes to protecting your rights. At Rush & Gransee, L.C., we know how stigmatizing it is to be accused of any sex crime, much less sex crimes such as Internet child pornography, attempted sexual assault of a minor, online solicitation, or sexual assault. All of the Texas Internet sex crimes will require sex offender registration if convicted and even if not convicted when a plea to the crime is entered. Most sex crime registration is for a lifetime. If you have been charged with an Internet (cyber) sex crime, it is vital that you have an aggressive and experienced attorney on your side.
If you know or suspect that you are under investigation for an Internet sex crime, it is important that you contact a San Antonio Internet sex crimes attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you do so, the better we can represent you. Do not talk to the police until you talk to an experienced Internet crime lawyer. If a police officer requests that you come in to give a statement you should delay until you have time to talk to a lawyer.
Defense of Internet Sex Crime Charges
As experienced Texas Internet sex crimes lawyers, we know how to effectively raise many legal defenses:
- Were authorities posing as or role-playing as a minor child who propositioned you for online chat room sex?
- Were you entrapped?
- Were the digital images of child pornography on your computer without your knowledge?
- Were the illegal pornographic images stored in the cache memory?
- Did other people have access to your computer?
These issues and many others need to be investigated. It is necessary in some cases for your attorney to employ experts in forensic computer science. We can defend you and put you in the strongest position possible.
An effective defense strategy can make the difference between you being convicted of a serious Internet sex crime — and being marked for life as a sexual predator — and retaining your freedom. We have engaged the services of reputable forensic psychologists to assist in those child pornography cases wherein we will likely enter a plea. The forensic psychologist can testify at sentencing regarding the accused likelihood of recidivism and overall suitability to probation. In a recent case a client of Kurt Gransee was given four years deferred adjudication (no conviction) with no jail time as a result of the testimony of the forensic psychologist.
Sex Offender Registration
A conviction for any Internet sex crime involving a minor will result in the defendant having to register as a sex offender. Though deferred adjudications are not convictions they still require registration as a sex offender when the computer crime involves a minor.
