Affirmative Defense for Killing Sexual Assault Abuser?: C.R.S. 18-1-704

Denver Murder Attorney

In Denver, Jefferson, and Adams County, Colorado, an affirmative defense such as Self Defense or Defense of Another Person (C.R.S. 18-1-704) can completely negate any criminal liability when a person is accused of a crime. Recently, a Texas man discovered a family friend sexually assaulting his 4-year-old daughter, and punched him in the head repeatedly, causing his death. Even though the sheriff investigating the incident said that he believed the father had a right to defend his daughter, there will still be an investigation into this man's actions, and the sheriff will submit his findings to the district attorney for presentment to the grand jury, which will make a decision whether to charge the father with Murder / Homicide or manslaughter.

Self Defense for Assault, Harassment and Menacing

Self defense for Assault, Harassment and Menacing charges in Denver, Arapahoe, Jefferson, Adams, and Douglas County is often overlooked or misunderstood in Colorado. Lawyers miss the value of this Affirmative Defense and miss a chance to win their case.  Criminal Defense Attorneys forget that their are many affirmative defenses like Self Defense which can greatly increase the burden of proof imposed upon the District Attorney.
