The sex offender registration requirements basically lump everyone together regardless of the facts of the case. It’s a scarlet letter you can never get rid of. These cases are all or nothing. There’s usually no choice but to fight.
— Peter M. Lopez, Attorney & Counselor at Law

If you are convicted, receive probation, or are placed on deferred adjudication for a sex offense, you could be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. And if your registration requirement is shorter, the stigma remains.

It takes an experienced criminal defense lawyer to navigate through all of the different possible outcomes, offenses and lesser offenses, ranges of punishment, and registration requirements. Peter M. Lopez has defended clients charged with sex crimes for over 15 years. Peter has won dismissals, not guilty verdicts, and has successfully negotiated pleas not requiring registration.
