Sex Crimes in Denver - Questions and Answers

Why Does Someone Accused of a Sex Crime Need a lawyer?

A lawyer is needed in a sex crime case for many specific reasons. First, an experienced lawyer will be able to find defenses that are available to an accused. For instance, in Parker, Colorado, a person accused of sexual assault, 18-3-402, might be able to show that the alleged victim consented to the sexual contact. There also have been many examples of 'victims' lying to the police about the alleged contact. We have had cases in Weld County, Greely, Colorado, where a spouse has lied about a sexual assault in order to help her position in a divorce. A similar accusation occurred in Douglas County, Castle Rock, Colorado. During a divorce between a husband and wife, the wife lied about sexual assault allegedly committed by her soon to be ex-husband in order for her to get more of the marital assets. In both of those cases, our clients were found not guilty of the charges. Sex assault accusations in Denver and surrounding counties is common during divorces. Unfortunately, alleged victims lie to the Colorado police all the time. An experienced attorney will be able to help fight these lies and accusations and will provide you with the best defense possible.

How Can Attorneys Negotiate Better Than You?

Another way that someone who is accused of Internet luring - 18-3-306, unlawful sexual contact - 18-3-404, or indecent exposure, 18-7-302, in Arapahoe County can benefit from an experienced lawyer is through negotiation with the district attorney. Some of our clients' cases don't necessarily go to trial. Instead, they would rather negotiate with the district attorneys to get a better deal. What an experienced lawyer in Colorado will be able to do is to point out legal problems with the case, or to suggest creative pleas you've never heard of. This is just like the case we had in Jefferson County involving the crime of failure to register as a sex offender - C.R.S. 18-3-412.5. In that case, we approached the district attorney in Jefferson County and were able to show them the weaknesses in their case against our client. After we spoke with them, they dismissed the charges against our client. The ability to reason with the district attorneys and receive favorable outcomes for our clients only comes with time and experience. There are some good DAs out there, but they may need evidence and a legal argument to prove what we are telling them.

What Does the Experience of a Sex Crimes Lawyer Do for You?

Relationships, Reputation and Resources = Results. Someone accused of indecent exposure needs an experienced lawyer because we have relationships with district attorneys where we can sit down and talk with credibility. There is not always an adversarial relationship. Many of the DAs we work with for years want to settle cases and we can move them toward a disposition which will guard your job or criminal record. Since we've worked with these people before, they know our reputation and that we are telling the truth — that we can prove what we are saying we will prove. We also know the weaknesses inherent in particular DA offices. Finally, we have resources. We know experts and investigators who are good at what they do and who team up with us to protect your future. We've used private investigators, sex therapists, drug and alcohol counselors, firearms experts, doctors and accident reconstructionists.
