Defending Against Sexual Assault Allegations
There is a good chance that nearly every aspect of your life will change if you are convicted of sexual assault. Bearing that in mind, you will need to do everything you possibly can to defend yourself against a prosecutorial team that is already convinced that you are guilty of the offense.
Though these charges are exceedingly serious, you will have the opportunity to work with an experienced legal team who will know how to help you develop a comprehensive defense against your charges. So, while your life has probably already been affected by the charges themselves, you need to remember that you have not been convicted of anything yet.
Potential Consequences of Sexual Assault Convictions
Almost every sexual assault charge will be pursued as a second degree felony in Austin, which may be punishable by the following penalties:
- Lifetime registration as a sex offender
- A prison sentence of 2-20 years
- Up to $10,000 in fines
Though this will certainly be a difficult period of your life, you will need to take immediate action if you are to defend your rights and give yourself a chance to get through this ordeal.
