Sexual Assault in Jefferson County - Government Fear Drives Criminal Charges
Today, with police and district attorneys anxious about losing their job if criticized for not filing a case, the government is filing almost anything with the word "sex" in it. These cases garner strong emotional support for "victims", and a well-meaning public intent on ridding the world of wrongdoers. We have Sexual Assault cases in Jefferson, Arapahoe and Denver County, where women with regret the day after a sexual encounter try and save face by calling police and saying they were incapable of giving consent to sex. Others, after a breakup with their boyfriend, call police in an effort to get revenge.
Sex Assualts - Little Evidence Needed
Sexual Assault cases generally have little physical evidence. If a woman cries well and shows strong emotion, she can beat most any man in the emotional battle to juror's hearts. This is dangerous ground for any man. It should make men seriously reconsider their "sleep around" mentality and marry a woman for life. Marriage has many advantages, not the least of which is you get to pick the woman you will be married to for life. Choose carefully and live faithful to her, so you don't end up getting charged with a sex crime.
Sentencing for Sexual Assault Cases
Sexual offenses have lifetime sentencing as Colorado as legislators all vote to be tougher on crime. What they have forgotten is that many convicted men have done nothing wrong and many others do not pose a danger to society. The sex offender treatment model of "no cure", and "containment" ignores societal costs of sex offender vilification. Why should a man who touched a woman sexually be labeled a danger to society for life? Sex offender registration laws are more of an attempt by society to punish sex offenders without ceasing than protecting the public. Colorado now has their villain and the rest of us can go on living our "perfect" lives.
