People are usually disgusted and confused when they hear someone has been charged with Incest – C.R.S. 18-6-302 in Adams, Douglas, and Denver County. As an experienced criminal defense attorney, I have defended many people who have been accused of Incest. When working on sex crime cases, I have found there are often two victims – the complaining witness and the defendant who contacted me. What do I mean by this? Let me explain.
People Facing Incest Charges are Sometimes Victims Themselves
I work regularly with people who have been charged with sex crimes such as Sexual Assault – C.R.S. 18-3-402, Unlawful Sexual Contact – C.R.S. 18-3-404, or Sexual Assault on a Child – C.R.S. 18-3-405. In many situations, the defendant was sexually abused as a child ( while I am not a trained psychiatrist or medical doctor, there are many studies that link sexual abuse as a child and becoming an offender). In most cases, sexual deviance is a learned behavior. This isn’t a justification for committing Incest, but it offers insight into the reasons behind a crime, and how we can get help for people who have been convicted of Incest or Aggravated Incest – C.R.S. 18-6-301 in El Paso, Arapahoe, and Jefferson County. I have seen far too often that people who are facing Incest charges and other sex crimes are made out to be monsters (even before they have been convicted). If they are convicted, they are often outcasts with no hope for help or recovery. Here at the O’Malley Law Office, we focus on helping people who are facing Incest charges and other sex crimes get the help they need.
We are focused one helping those convicted of sex crime to get the treatment they need.
