What Our Harris County Sex Crime Attorney Offers Clients
Sex crimes consist of many offenses, including sexual assault, child sexual abuse, indecent exposure, and more. Each case comes with its own set of circumstances and legal nuances, which is why you want a defense strategy tailored to your needs.
You may consider entrusting your case to Blass Law because:
We’ve Built a Reputation Based on Success
Some criminal defense lawyers only aim to reduce their clients’ charges. Others claim to seek fair outcomes, but simply don’t have the skill to fulfill these promises. When Jay takes your sex crime case, he’s determined to secure a “not guilty” verdict. He relies on his perceptive nature, specialized training, and years of experience to put your future first.
Some case results he’s secured include these stories:
- Our client was accused of shooting and killing the driver of an 18-wheeler truck–who turned out to be an informant for the DEA. We secured a “not guilty” verdict in Harris County Court.
- Our client was accused of continuous sexual assault of a child. We’ll spare you the details, but in the end, we secured a “not guilty” verdict—also in a Harris County Court.
- Our client was accused of failing to register as a sex offender and was on the run for two years. We secured dismissal.
- Our client was accused of sexual assault and two counts of indecent assault. We secured three dismissals.
- The police found our client asleep in his car while parked in the middle of a major roadway. Despite the mountain of evidence against him (including several failed sobriety tests), Jay Blass Cohen secured a “not guilty” verdict.
These case results illustrate our commitment to securing your future in the aftermath of being accused of a sex crime.

Legal Strategies We May Employ in Your Harris County Sex Crime Case
Upon reviewing your situation, our criminal defense lawyer may assert that:
The State Doesn’t Have Compelling Evidence
Many sex offense cases rest almost entirely on the accuser’s testimony. Yet, this may not be sufficient evidence to support a conviction. There must be corroborating evidence to show that beyond a reasonable doubt, you committed a crime. If the state doesn’t have compelling evidence, we may be able to get your case dismissed before trial.
You Didn’t Commit the Crime
We may assert that you didn’t commit the crime in question. For instance, we may use evidence to show that you had an alibi when the alleged event happened. We may also produce evidence that shows the alleged victim misidentified you.
The Other Party Is Falsely Accusing You
Some sexual assault allegations are rooted in malice rather than a desire to get justice. Here’s an example. A man is going through a contentious divorce with his soon-to-be ex-wife, with a child custody battle on the horizon. To gain the upper hand, his ex accuses him of sexually abusing the kids, resulting in serious criminal charges.
In situations like these, we take a multi-pronged approach. It involves undermining the other party’s credibility, along with using evidence to demonstrate a crime didn’t happen. You can learn more about how we combat false sex crime accusations during your initial consultation.
The State Did Not Properly Gather Evidence
Law enforcement must follow certain procedures to lawfully obtain evidence. Under the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, you have protections from unlawful searches and seizures. So, the police can’t come to your house and take your laptop without a warrant. They also can’t search your person unless they have probable cause.
We work to ensure that the police didn’t violate your rights during their initial investigation. If a violation did occur, we can move to have any unlawfully obtained evidence disregarded from trial.
