In San Antonio and throughout Texas, drug cases are treated very seriously by law enforcement. Aside from incarceration, guilty verdicts can lead to the loss of driving privileges, forfeiture of property and a limit to future employment opportunities.
Sex Offense Cases
Conviction for a sexual offense is a serious issue and is punished accordingly. Terms of incarceration typically start at 10 years and have little chance of parole. The allegation alone can result in social stigmas, the loss or strain of personal and professional relationships and even the loss of employment and professional licenses.
