Denver Rape and Sexual Assault Lawyer

Defending against Rape and Sexual Assault charges in Jefferson, Douglas and Arapahoe County may be the toughest job you've ever faced. Your criminal defense attorney should be prepared to challenge DNA evidence if it exists, argue consent for sex if it did occur, and deny sex if plausible.

Consent is Often the Only Issue in a Rape Case

Rape and Sexual Assault, C.R.S. 18-3-402, are serious sex crimes where penetration of the victim occurs without consent. We frequently see consent as the only issue in our case. Prior to our being hired, our clients have spoken to police and admitted to the sexual contact and penetration. Police will work hard in these situations to get you to say that you now see how the "victim" was too drunk to give consent, or that she legitimately changed her mind and you failed to stop the sex act.

It is frustrating to see the motivation for denying consent or to say the sex was forced occur over and over. Women willingly have sex and then become embarrassed following discovery of their conduct. In order to save face with parents, friends or a significant other, they lie and say they did not know what they were doing or that they were forced into sex and raped in Adams, Broomfield and Larimer County.

Indeterminate Sentencing in Sexual Assault and Rape Cases

A conviction for Rape or Sexual Assault in Weld or Summit County can result in a lifetime of prison under Colorado's indeterminate sentence, where a judge cannot even give a defendant a maximum sentence. Only when the parole board deems a person safe will they be released. This leaves the lives of men on hold and susceptible to political whims of those in power. Rarely is it politically popular to release a rapist or sex offender. The excuse is often that the defendant has not completed enough treatment to get out - which occurs because DOC underfunds this treatment and space is unavailable.

One night stands and sex with a woman who has been drinking are terribly dangerous. Don't place your life in their hands, but instead, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and call the experienced Rape / Sexual Assault Lawyers at 303-731-0719. Together, we can protect your future.
