If you have been charged and convicted of certain sex crimes, you are likely aware that the state of Texas requires convicted sex offenders to register their information with local law enforcement and be included on the state's sex offender registry.
At Hines Ranc & Holub, our attorneys know that the stigma of having to be listed as a sex offender can make it difficult to move forward following completion of a jail sentence, parole or probation. Combined with restrictions that many communities impose on where individuals can live and move, inclusion on the sex offender registry can be a truly significant burden.
We are here to help and advocate on your behalf. Whether you are being investigated for alleged crimes, are facing prosecution or have been convicted, we will fight to defend you and make sure that a sex crime charge does not result in a lifetime of consequences.
Know If You Are Subject To The Sex Offender Registry

- Compelling prostitution
- Sexual performance by a child
- Possession or promotion of child pornography

As experienced criminal defense lawyers, we can aggressively defend you in court if you have been charged with a sex crime.
