Unlawful Sexual Contact, C.R.S. 18-3-404, Charge in Denver


In Denver, Arapahoe, and Adams County the District Attorney can charge you with Unlawful Sexual Contact and force you to register as a sex offender simply for giving someone a "good-game" on the butt (for those of you who are not sports enthusiasts, a "good game" is when athletes, like those who play for the Denver Broncos, Colorado Avalanche, or Colorado Rockies, pat each other on the rear-end after they do something well). All it takes is for the "victim" to say they did not consent to the touching, and some suggestion it was for sexual gratification.

What Defenses do I Have if I am Charged with a Sex Crime?

Legal defenses available to a person charged with Unlawful Sexual Contact or Third Degree Assault in Jefferson, Douglas, and El Paso County can be researched with help from an experienced criminal defense lawyer. For instance, was the person consenting to the touching, fondling, or caressing and then later changed their mind? Were you fully aware that the person did not want to be groped or had they led you on and said that they would like that experience with you? Was the "victim" drugged by another person before you met them and they consented to that sexual contact with you? These questions could best be answered by consulting an attorney about your sexual criminal charge.

What is the Punishment for Unlawful Sexual Contact?

Unlawful sexual Contact is a misdemeanor. When someone thinks about sexual crimes in Broomfield, Gilpin, and Elbert County, they tend to imagine Possession of Child Pornography, Sexual Assault on a Child, or Internet Luring. But in reality, people are charged with misdemeanor crimes just as often. Unlawful Sexual Contact is a class 1 misdemeanor in most cases. This means that a maximum sentence would include up to two years in jail. Like a felony sexual assault, mandatory sex offender treatment is a given.

What do I do if I Have Been Charged with Unlawful Sexual Contact?

Do NOT speak with the police in Englewood, Lone Tree, or Arvada regarding your sex case. If the police are speaking to you, it means you are the suspect for a criminal act. Next, call our criminal defense attorneys to help you fight against the false charges. Many people end up making mistakes when they handle a case on their own; no matter how small the legal problem may be. These mistakes usually cause lifelong problems. So, if you or a loved one are facing charges of Unlawful Sexual Contact, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and call us today at 303-731-0719. Together, we can protect your future.
