Facts To Consider About Convicted Sex Crime Offenders
In Texas, once a person is convicted of a sex crime, he/she must list their name and contact information within the state's sex offender registry, which is accessible by the general public. Sex offenders often are subjected to discrimination when they try to obtain employment and housing opportunities.
Sex crime charges can lead to bias from family, friends, peers, neighbors and employers. Even in cases where the person being charged is falsely accused, he/she can face maltreatment from both loved ones and acquaintances. Contact D'Amore Law Firm for experienced legal representation in your case and do not let yourself face unjust conviction.
