Houston Rape Attorneys

Aggressive Criminal Defense for Sex Crime Charges

Anyone who intentionally and knowingly has sexual interactions with a person against their will or with someone who cannot consent because of incoherence can be charged with rape. If the person is under the age of 17 at the time of the encounter and the person is not legally their spouse in a consenting marriage, they could file charges of rape as well. This offense is incredibly serious and could potentially risk a person being tried and convicted and facing up to 20 years to life in prison. Texas Penal Code §22.011 outlines the statutes governing rape and a prosecutor or plaintiff will use all necessary courses of action to ensure that you receive the highest penalties for your case. If you have been arrested and charged with rape, you need to immediately retain the representation of a Houston Criminal Attorney at Stornello & Correro Law Firm, PLLC.

While an accusation of rape is incredibly troubling, there are actually many defenses that could be used in your situation. We understand that sometimes the person being accused of rape is the victim of another person's malicious goals or inaccurate memory. At our firm, we will conduct an investigation on our behalf to determine if you any of the following defenses could be used in your situation.

  • False accusations - the person is wrongfully accusing you of rape
  • Consent - the victim actually consented to the act
  • Mistaken identification - in some situation, if a video or other material distributed and used as evidence, a grainy image or lack of facial recognition could lead to a mistaken identity
  • Insufficient evidence - there is simply not enough evidence to charge you with the crime

Without the assistance of Stornello & Correro Law Firm, PLLC, you could potentially be facing lengthy prison sentencing and if you are convicted of rape, you could be forced to spend the rest of your life registering as a convicted sex offender. These sex offender registries are public and will offer personal information about you to anyone who is looking, including name, age, height, conviction and address.
