Summary: A Texas lawyer has been accused by two women of sending sexual explicit text messages offering the exchange of sex for legal services.

A Lake Jackson lawyer has been accused of sending texts soliciting sex as a form of payment for legal services to two women. The two women claim in court documents that Stan Simiskey sent them sexually explicit text messages, offering an exchange of sex for legal work.

Simiskey is a former Brazoria County assistant district attorney that has since moved to private practice. A Brazoria County grand jury indicted him last week. He now faces two counts of harassment and prostitution, all class B misdemeanors. He was released on $2,500 bond the same day as his arrest.

One woman that complained to the Brazoria County District Attorney’s office was a client of Simiskey while the other woman was the relative of a client. District Attorney Jeri Yenne said the allegations were investigated and turned over the grand jury.

His attorney Charles Adams said he plans to “aggressively defend” his client. Adams explained, “Stan is a long-time resident of Brazoria County and is a former assistant district attorney. This came out of left field.” Simiskey was the District Attorney from 2007 to 2010.

Adams added, “He’s a true public servant. When they brought the allegations, I was shocked. I can’t imagine he committed these alleged acts, but I’m hopeful we’ll be able to exonerate him. He’s a wonderful person.”

The women claim he texted them obscene comments, including that he was willing to accept sexual acts for legal services. If convicted, he will face up to 6 months in jail and a $2,000 fine. The complaint has also been filed with the State Bar of Texas.
