Powerful Criminal Defense From A Proven Former Prosecutor

A Sex Crime Conviction Will Have Lifelong Consequences

Although we all like a degree of independence and the feeling that we can do it all alone without anyone’s help, there are times when you absolutely need help. There are times when you cannot overcome the obstacle in front of you without calling in some outside assistance. If you are facing sex crime charges in Texas, this is one of those times. You need an experienced, knowledgeable attorney on your side who knows how to fight these charges and help you avoid prison and other consequences.

At Sylestine Law PLLC, I can help you. I am Jeremy Sylestine, and I have more than 15 years of criminal law experience. As a prosecutor for more than 15 years, I handled countless cases involving sexual assault and various violent felonies. I will look at the evidence against you, the investigation, your arrest record and any other relevant information to find any possible way to minimize the damage of the charges you are facing. I serve clients in Austin and throughout the surrounding areas of Texas.

Severe Punishment For Sex Offenses

If you are convicted of a sex crime charge in Texas, you will face severe penalties. Heavy fines and jail time are frightening, to be sure, but they are just the beginning. In addition to these standard criminal penalties, those convicted of sexual assault charges also face severe public humiliation.

The consequences can last a lifetime. Those accused of sex crimes in Texas will be listed in the sex offender registry. The information about your crimes and your residence will become public knowledge, accessible to anyone. In addition, having a sex crime conviction on your permanent record will severely limit your ability to secure work, housing and credit.

The lifelong impact of a sex crime conviction is truly catastrophic.

I provide strong criminal defense against sex crime charges that include:

  • Sexual assault
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Indecency with a minor
  • Sex trafficking

  • Solicitation

These are just some of the most common sex crime charges that I handle in Texas. I have experience with everything from simple indecent exposure charges to aggravated sexual assault. Whatever charge you are facing, I can help.
