This past month, I was a guest speaker on KRKS 94.7. We spoke with Gino Geraci on his show, Crosswalk. We discussed many different aspects of criminal defense, such as why we practice criminal law exclusively, how good people are often charged with crimes, and how sex offense charges often stem from false accusations in Denver, Adams, and Jefferson County. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at these aspects of criminal defense in Colorado.
Why We Are Criminal Defense Attorneys
The lawyers here at the O'Malley Law Office often discuss how often family and friends ask us how we can justify being criminal defense attorneys. We have two answers:
- Our Constitutions: Every person has the right to a vigorous defense. This concept is what our entire justice is based on – we firmly believe in this right guaranteed by the United States and Colorado Constitution.
- Our Hope: As criminal defense attorneys, we view our work as a ministry. In the midst of great need, we are able to offer true hope to our clients by discussing the redemption and hope which Christ provides along with effective legal remedies for their difficulties.
Good People are Often Falsely Accused of Sex Crimes
In the radio segment, I talked about how good people are often charged with sex offenses. I have worked with teachers, pastors, youth leaders, daycare owners, and other people in ministry positions have been falsely accused. I referenced two people in the radio segment – a daycare owner's husband, and a woman who mentored young women – who were both falsely accused of Sexual Assault on a Child by a Person in a Position of Trust – C.R.S. 18-3-405.3. One of these two people was a good, Christian leader in her church. Yet, they were accused of sex crimes with possible life sentences. Just because you are in leadership and serve the church faithfully doesn't mean you won't be falsely accused. In fact, being in leadership positions often makes you a target. Here at the O'Malley Law Office, we understand the importance of fighting false accusations in court. Whenever people say: “Good people aren't accused of crimes,” pastor Gino gives good advice. Which perfect person was accused of a crime he didn't commit? As Christians, we need to realize that Christ took on the sins of the world, and he was falsely accused.
