Molestation / Child Sexual Abuse
Child molestation or child sexual abuse is the act of sexually touching a child (a girl or boy 13 years of age or younger). Child abuse charges generate a great amount of stigma; even the mere accusation of a child molestation charge will affect the way that others look at you. Even though our criminal justice system is based upon the principle of “innocent until proven guilty”, in highly charged child molestation cases, people tend to rush to judgment and assume your guilt.
If you have been charged with child molestation in Houston, it is necessary to take the first step forward in an effort to understand your legal options, rights and status. Dyer & Libby can help you determine exactly where you stand in your case and what the best outcome can be.
Child pornography is pornography that exploits children for sexual stimulation. Even the allegation of a child pornography charge is enough to upset the balance in your life. If you have been arrested for possessing, creating or distributing child pornography in Houston, we urge you to obtain the legal services of a skilled and experienced child pornography lawyer like Dyer & Libby.
It is illegal to be involved in any form of child pornography in Texas. There are also federal laws that prohibit child pornography. The consequences of a child pornography conviction are extreme.
Dyer & Libby’s defense against child pornography includes motions regarding improper police procedures, illegally obtained or improperly handled evidence and/or tainted chain of possession as well as unproven or disputed computer ownership or usage and finally unconstitutional search and seizure of evidence.
Internet Sex Crimes
What are Internet Sex Crimes? It is illegal to participate in online sex chat rooms with the following motives:
•To solicit a minor on the internet
•To lure a minor for sexual exploitation
•To schedule (or attempt to schedule) a meeting with a minor
•To communicate with a minor
Just because your IP address or email account was used to conduct illegal activity such as internet sex crimes does not mean you or someone in your household was responsible. Many people are highly skilled in computers and there is always the possibility that someone could hack into your computer and commit crimes. If you have been arrested for an internet sex crime in the Houston area, we urge you to obtain the legal representation that you need. Dyer & Libby has the legal expertise and extensive experience to defend people accused of internet sex offenses.
Fortunately it takes more than a simple accusation or an arrest to prove guilt. The government must prove that you have violated specific laws in order for you to be found guilty. Some of the defenses that Dyer & Libby employs against internet sex crimes include incorrect or mistaken identity, illegally obtained or tainted evidence, improper police procedure such as Miranda rights not being read or a warrantless search as well as entrapment by authorities posing as minors on the internet.
Prostitution involves offering sexual services in exchange for a fee or something of value; in most cases money is exchanged between the parties. In other instances there may be an item or service exchanged such as drugs, shelter or transportation. Sexual conduct may involve intercourse, oral sex, or other kinds of sex.
As your Houston prostitution defense attorney, we may raise a number of challenges in order to obtain a favorable verdict or even a dismissal of your case. These may include such factors as whether the arrest and/or search warrant was valid or if there was a lack of a search warrant altogether, whether evidence was illegally obtained or if police conduct was unconstitutional or followed improper procedure and finally was there entrapment of undercover officers improperly acting as “Johns”.
Indecent exposure involves exposing genitals or breasts in a reckless manner with indifference as to whether someone else would be offended or alarmed by the act. It does not include the act of breast feeding.
At Dyer & Libby, we will carefully analyze your case to determine whether any offense of indecent exposure actually occurred. Our legal defense strategy may include examination of whether there were any credible witnesses and if their statements were accurately recorded. We also look to see if there is contrary evidence that proves the alleged facts of the case are false and whether the police followed proper procedure. Our goal is to negotiate the charges to a lesser offense or in the best can achieve an immediate case dismissal.
Other Sex Crimes: Human and Sex Trafficking, “Peeping Tom” Voyeurism etc
Regarding human and sex trafficking charges, as in all other crimes, our defense looks to expose improper police procedures, lack of or improperly obtained evidence and false allegations. In some arrests and charges such as voyeurism, we seek to dispute the intent that must be proven. For a free consultation, contact Dyer & Libby Attorneys At Law today!
