Texas Sex Crime Defense
False allegations of a Texas sex crime can ruin lives. Friends, family and even the media often turn against the accused before any evidence has been examined. Unfortunately, bogus accusations permeate this area of criminal law.
Understanding Sexual Offenses
In almost every case where a person is guilty of a sex crime, that individual has been the victim of sexual abuse. We understand the cycle of sexual trauma. Many times for the sex offender, being caught comes with an overwhelming sense of relief. Acting out was a cry for help. And now, the greatest need isn’t for extreme punishment; it’s for help. At The Law Office of Philip M. Gommels, we believe that everyone — no matter the accusation — deserves a strong defense.

In these types of cases, the prosecution often lacks any physical evidence. They will try to elicit statements from the accused and use those statements against you. If the police are questioning you, you are under investigation, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT.
If you or someone you know is being investigated for a sex crime, the most important thing to do is to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. He can protect you from making statements that may be used against you later, and represent you in the court of public opinion where these cases are often litigated first.
