Reputable San Antonio Attorney Defends Against Federal Sex Crimes Charges

Work with a lawyer who isn’t afraid to stand up for your rights

When you face charges for sex crimes, you deserve the same quality of criminal defense as anyone else. At Kevin L. Collins, P.C. I believe everyone deserves fair legal representation and an attorney willing to battle for them. With more than 27 years of legal experience and time as a prosecutor, I have a thorough understanding of courtroom procedures and tactics that will be used against you, and insight into how to fight those tactics. I fight for you through litigation and in negotiations to ensure you receive a fair, positive result.

What are the common types of sex crimes?

There are many different types of federal sex crimes, each of which has its own unique set of concerns that must be dealt with throughout the defense of your case. Seek the assistance of a criminal defense lawyer if you have been charged with:

  • Human trafficking: The trade in humans for the purpose of sexual slavery. In many cases, victims are kidnapped and then sold into the sexual slave trade or used as prostitutes.
  • Child exploitation: This concerns any means of exploiting a child for sexual purposes, through the Internet, through text messages or in person.
  • Child pornography: The manufacturing, possession or distribution of child pornography is a federal crime.
  • Kidnapping: In this case, kidnapping for the purpose of a sex crime.

The penalties for federal sex crimes are severe, including prison sentences and lengthy probation periods.

Fighting federal sex crime charges

The U.S. Department of Justice investigates these crimes through its Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering and Tracking. If you are arrested, remain silent and allow me as your lawyer to speak for you. This protects you from self-incrimination and allows me to use defense tactics such as:

  • Proof of improper interrogation: People questioning victims may use leading tactics that manipulate the alleged victim into providing false or misleading information. I monitor the evidence and how it is collected to ensure that the proper approaches to interrogation are taken.
  • Demonstrating a motive for discrediting: Sometimes, alleged victims of sex crimes accuse the alleged perpetrator out of ulterior motives, such as extortion, protecting their own reputations, etc. I seek to prove these motivations if they do exist.
  • Suppression of evidence: If law enforcement officials collect evidence from you or your property without permission or a warrant, I fight to have this evidence deemed inadmissible in court.
