Of all the criminal accusations you can possibly face, sex crimes are some of the most damaging and shaming. An allegation of a sex offense can devastate your reputation, your relationships, and every aspect of your professional and personal life. The severe stigmatization of sex offenses can make you feel abandoned by your friends and family, regardless of the truth behind the charges against you.

The penalties for a sex crime conviction are overwhelming and can leave your world full of uncertainty. However, if you are accused of a sex offense, the tough, smart sexual assault lawyer, investigators and experts at the Law Office of Mary Beth Harrell are ready to help. Remember, you are innocent until proven guilty, and we will fight hard to make sure your rights are fully protected. Contact us at (254) 680-4655 to learn more about our services and see how we can defend your rights today.


Not all sex crimes are the same, but they all face the most severe criminal penalties and broad societal condemnation: prison, sex offender treatment, sex offender registration, the publication of your face and home address on a sex offender website. If you have any of these specific sex offenses levied against you, one of our knowledgeable criminal defense attorneys should take on your case:

  • Indecency with a Child
  • Indecent Exposure
  • Prostitution
  • Public Lewdness
  • Sexual Assault
  • Child Pornography
  • Sexual Assault of a Child

We have worked to protect our clients against a vast array of sex charges and will do our best to build a sound defense for you. We will get all the evidence including the written police reports, videos of interviews, photos, witness statements, DNA lab results, ballistics reports or forensic report on any weapon, medical records, the report of the sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE exam), and forensic reports of cell phone use. If the accusation involves a minor than we will obtain school records, the recorded interview at the children’s advocacy center (CAC) and CPS records if an investigation was started because of the accusation.

We have often found that the person making the accusation against our client is motivated by the desire to get revenge for a broken relationship, trying to get custody of a child, filing for divorce, jealous that our client has started a new relationship or is cheating on their relationship, or the accuser may be upset about financial problems, has a drinking or drug problem, or may have a mental health issue.

A false accusation can ruin an innocent person’s life.
