Rape

You have been accused of rape, and you feel terrified. This accusation may have devastating consequences on your career, your family, your reputation and your future. If convicted, you could lose years of your life behind bars.

The state of Texas prosecutes rape very aggressively. You need a law firm that is equally aggressive in your defense.

If you live in Plano or the Dallas-Fort Worth area and are facing rape charges, we can help you.

What Are The Consequences Of A Rape Conviction?

Texas classifies rape as a second-degree felony. However, if there are certain aggravating factors present including serious bodily injury, the presence of a deadly weapon or the use of a drug, the state elevates the crime to a first-degree felony. This is the second most serious crime in the state, and the consequences are severe. If convicted of either of these charges, you may face penalties including:

  • A fine of up to $10,000
  • Probation
  • Civil commitment
  • Between 2 and 99 years in jail
  • Mandatory registration as a sex offender
