Experienced Sex Crimes Defense by Bob Phillips
A sex offense conviction can destroy your life; invest in our skilled criminal attorneys to keep your good name.
Sex crime convictions can devastate and even ruin the lives of those convicted: punishments can vary from as little as a fine to life in prison without parole. Texas, particularly Williamson County, is notorious for sentencing a significant percentage of accused sex offenders to the penitentiary. It is critical that you retain a veteran, smart, aggressive defense attorney for such an offense AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. This is especially crucial, even if you have not been arrested: be sure that law enforcement is relentlessly seeking to build a case against you, so you should not talk with ANYONE about sex offense allegations (including people you trust: your spouse, children, relatives, friends) before you talk to a lawyer. Why? Because any statement you make, even though you think it sounds innocent and vindicating, can be used against you in a trial, and your most trusted friends and loved ones can be forced to testify against you. Sex crimes are investigated and prosecuted as aggressively as any crime, with the possible exception of Murder and Capital Murder. We do not charge for the initial phone consultation or in-person consultation: for your sake, therefore, you should make an appointment immediately to talk with one of our experienced sex crimes defense lawyers. At Robert M. Phillips & Associates, we never rest in protecting the rights of the accused in Georgetown, Williamson County, and other parts of Central Texas.

Someone is Accusing You of a Sex Crime in Central Texas? Now What?
You have no time to waste: it is essential that you get legal advice immediately, even if there is no truth to the charges. Countless numbers of people, believing “they have nothing to hide” (remember the Michael Morton case?), have walked in and made a full “statement” to law enforcement, or talked with trusted friends and loved ones on the phone, not realizing they were being tape recorded. Police officers and law enforcement use ethically questionable, but lawful, “pretext phone calls” between you and your accused, or some other “trusted” friend, to get you to make statements that can be used against you in court. DO NOT TALK TO ANYONE BEFORE YOU TALK TO A CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY, SKILLED IN THE DEFENSE OF SEX CRIMES. Call us immediately: the call is free, as is any consultation which immediately follows thereafter. Do not delay!
If this advice seems shrill or melodramatic, be sure that it is not: we have seen countless numbers of people arrested and convicted because of ill-advised (and uncounseled by a lawyer) statements to law enforcement and even loved ones. There are many innocent people in prison today because they did not seek a lawyer FIRST, even though innocent of serious charges. If you are convicted of a sex crime, not only are you likely to face penitentiary time, but lengthy (and sometimes lifetime) sex offender registration. This information is openly available to the public through government websites and other means. Being permanently or semi-permanently labeled as a sex offender is a social stigma that many people never shake: the financial and psychological torment and collateral damage is incalculable and inarticulable. In many jurisdictions in Texas, even if sex offenders are placed on probation, their ability to use computers, the internet, be in the presence of minors (even in public places), and their rights to their own children and housing are severely compromised.
Therefore, if you believe yourself to be innocent, and even if you know yourself to be guilty, of such a crime, it is imperative that you call an experienced lawyer immediately. Even the guilty deserve an aggressive, sympathetic defense, and a veteran sex crimes lawyer can help minimize the likelihood that you will go to prison or have to register as a sex offender for an extended period of time. The faster you obtain legal counsel and representation, the earlier someone on our veteran team of lawyers, investigators, and paralegals can begin the investigation to prepare your defense. Your very freedom and future, not to mention the well-being of your loved ones and children, are at stake. If you hesitate, or choose an inexperienced or court-appointed lawyer, the irreversible consequences can last a lifetime.
