Understanding The Law
The first thing to understand about your situation is that there are a variety of different charges, which include:
- Sexual assault
- Sexual assault on a child
- Sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust
- Sexual assault on a client by a psychotherapist
These can be difficult charges to defend, and in some cases, Colorado’s rape shield law may prevent your attorney from asking your accuser certain types of questions. You need an attorney who knows whether this law applies in your case, and how to work around the difficulties that the law can present to your case.
Understanding Your Rights
An important fact of American criminal law, which may be even more important in the case of sex offenses, is that people charged with crimes are innocent until proven guilty. No one should have to face criminal charges alone, indeed the Bill of Rights guarantees that people do not have to stand alone when facing criminal charges.Â Make sure that you have a dedicated Denver criminal defense lawyer with you when you face these serious charges.
Sexual assault cases are assigned to prosecution teams that handle small caseloads, meaning that the prosecution is able to focus more attention on these cases than many others. You need a Denver criminal defense attorney who can put the same kind of attention into your defense. A conviction for sexual assault can ruin your future by making it extremely difficult to find work or housing, or to participate in government programs, and requiring you to register as a sex offender. Don’t let these charges ruin your life. Speak with an aggressive, dedicated sex offense attorney immediately.
