Sexual Assault on a Child Charges in Denver

Hire a Skilled Denver Sex Crime Defense Attorney

Probably the most aggressively prosecuted charge in Colorado is sexual assault on a child. The state takes very seriously its duty to protect our children and rightly so. However, the incidence of false accusations of sexual assault on a child is extremely high. Many times the accusations arise in the course of divorce or child custody proceedings where one parent is trying to gain a tactical advantage against the other spouse by alleging sexual abuse of the child. If you have been charged with a crime involving sexual assault on a child, do not wait another moment to get the strong defense you need.

Life in Prison Is Possible without Strong Defense

In federal and Colorado criminal courts, a person could face up to a life sentence in prison for a conviction of committing sexual assault on a child.

My firm conducts a thorough investigation in each case to determine:

  • Whether the alleged victim was counseled to make false charges
  • Whether law enforcement "suggested" what happened to the alleged victim
  • Whether the "outcry" is by an angry stepchild trying to punish a stepparent for being strict

I consult with psychological experts and private investigators to compile a complete picture of what happened. Then I begin to build a defense by dismantling the prosecution's case and ensure that all relevant information is presented to the court.

Sentencing of Sex Assault Cases

The sentencing statutes for sexual assault on a child are set out in different sections. It takes a lawyer experienced in handling this type of case to ensure the client is treated fairly and compassionately. Many factors could make the difference between a sentence of life in prison and a sentence of a couple of years, between lifetime registration as a sex offender and the ability to be removed from the requirement to register. Sex offender treatment is mandatory in all cases. By acting quickly and doing a thorough investigation to uncover these factors, I am best able to defend my clients.
