Sex Offenses

Experienced Defense Attorney for Those Accused of Sex Crimes

Representing you against heinous charges

Sex crimes are widely considered the most sensitive areas of criminal defense. Many attorneys are unwilling to defend individuals charged with these crimes, especially when they involve children. At the San Antonio Law Office of Bill Baskette, however, I believe that every person is entitled to a defense, no matter what the crime is. If you’re innocent, I get you the justice you deserve. If you’ve been accused of a crime, I get what I can while protecting your rights. As always, you get the straight talk and direct contact I’m known for.

Effective defense and proactive representation

With 30 years of legal experience as a criminal lawyer, I’ve built a wealth of knowledge and insight into how the courts handle these kinds of cases. My background as a former judge and prosecutor means that I can anticipate how a prosecutor may proceed or how a judge may rule, and I use this insight to plan an effective, proactive defense strategy. Punishments and consequences for sexual offenses can include prison sentences, steep fines, requirements to register as a sex offender for life, a possibly a permanent criminal record and negative social stigma. There are numerous types of sex crime charges in Texas, including:
  • Sexual assault
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Indecency with a child
  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Date rape
  • Child molestation
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Solicitation of a minor
  • Child sexual abuse
  • Public lewdness
  • Solicitation of prostitution
  • Failure to register as a sex offender
  • Indecent exposure

Accusations and defenses against sexual offense charges

If you’ve been accused of a sex crime, you should immediately contact an attorney. In many cases, we can work with the police, the victim and prosecutors to minimize the embarrassment and ridicule and to determine how to proceed. The sooner you talk with me, the sooner I can help gather evidence and build you defense. When I represent you, I check every aspect of the case — situation, accusations, allegations, arrest and the future. I use the latest techniques in DNA testing and confirm that any searches and proceedings are done in accordance with the U.S. Constitution. And if you’ve been wrongfully accused, it’s even more important that you reach out to a professional attorney as soon as possible. Sexual offenses are dangerous to your reputation, to your job prospects, to your wallet and to your future.
