Denton Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer
People who are charged with sex crimes such as child sex offenses and sexual assault will be against hostile prosecutors as well as harsh public opinion. Majority of the public, including a number of criminal defense lawyers would easily believe the most horrible accusations against those who were accused of sex crimes.

We strongly believe that a person accused of a sexual offense deserves the best legal representation and defense.

Sex crimes are not treated the same as other offenses and if you are convicted you can be punished by a long sentence and sex offender registration, which is permanent. You need to have a lawyer who is dedicated to helping clients. Sadly, many have the belief that people who are accused of sex crimes do not deserve a good legal defense. If the accused is responsible, a number of lawyers believe that he or she should go to prison.
Attorney Mike Goolsby believes that the prosecution should prove your guilt beyond reasonable doubt and in sex crimes; the case usually comes down to the word of one person against another individual.
Too often, people confess to sex crime accusations. Even if the admission is not admissible in court, a skilled criminal defense attorney would find it very difficult to prevent the client from being imprisoned.
