Sex crimes from rape to sex trafficking are receiving increasing scrutiny in the Houston area. A specialized division investigates and prosecutes many of these cases. Severe penalties are guaranteed with a conviction. A sexual assault charge itself can cause lasting damage to your personal and professional life.
At Mingledorff Law Firm, our attorneys have more than 60 years of collective experience defending people in similar circumstances. Ken Mingledorff served as a former special judge in Harris County and Judy Mingledorff served as a special prosecutor for Harris County, focusing on serious criminal offenses such as sex offenses.
Our attorneys understand the discretion and sensitivity that it takes to defend these cases, and we are prepared to fight for you. We will not hesitate to go to trial if it is the best decision for your case.
Texas sets strict standards for sex offender registration, which comes with burdensome requirements. If convicted of a sex crime (even one involving consensual sex, a minor act or no actual contact) you might have to register for a long time.
Types Of Cases We Handle
We can protect your rights, if you or a loved one is arrested and accused of crimes like:
- Prostitution or solicitation whether online or at a street corner
- Child pornography and other online sex crimes
- Sex trafficking
- Sexual assault, rape and statutory rape

- All other sex offenses
What Are The Penalties?
Sex crime charges can come with severe consequences, including prison time, a lasting criminal record and national registration as a sex offender. Another penalty that impacts many of our clients is the prohibition on gun ownership. If you hunt or target shoot for a hobby this is another serious concern.
