Sex Offense Introduction
Sexual Misconduct in Denver, Colorado
In Colorado, any type of unlawful sexual contact or attempted sexual contact will result in criminal charges. Police do not examine the motive of a person making allegations of sexual misconduct, but eagerly charge people without any physical evidence. These charges have become an epidemic in Colorado as angry ex-lovers and children call police to gain revenge over husbands, boyfriends, and fathers. The District Attorneys in Denver, Arapahoe, Adams, Jefferson, and Douglas County have eagerly prosecuted sex cases and are filling our prisons with innocent men.
Internet Sex Crimes in Arapahoe County
An emerging body of cases results from internet sex chats. Crimes like Internet Luring of a Child, Internet Sexual Exploitation of a Child, and Enticement of a Child are more frequent every day. Many times, the use of pornography fuels the heightened sexual interest our clients express. Originating in chat rooms on Yahoo and America Online, these cases frequently occur after police pose as fourteen year old girls looking for sex. Police make contact with participants in these adult chat rooms and suggest a meeting for sex. When the adult arrives for the meeting in Arapahoe County, police come out of hiding and make an arrest.
Douglas County In-Person Sex Crimes
Colorado sex crimes like Sexual Assault on a Child, Incest and Aggravated Incest, and Sexual Assault all require in-person contact and generally don't originate with the internet. These crimes usually involve forced sexual contact by an adult to another adult, or sexual contact between an adult and a child. Since children cannot consent to sexual contact with adults, any sexual talk or touch with a child is a dangerous move. These Douglas County in-person sex crimes will sometimes have physical DNA evidence, but many times they do not. It is always best for our clients to remain silent when contacted by police because statements are often used against our clients who unsuccessfully try to talk their way out of charges.
Indirect Sex Crimes in Adams County
A final type of sex-based crime involves attempts at sexual gratification by Indecent Exposure or voyeurism (under the umbrella of the term Unlawful Sexual Contact). Voyeurism involves the typical “peeping tom” who looks into windows of people or uses hidden cameras to record nudity where the expectation of privacy exists. These crimes are treated just as seriously by Adams County police as those involving physical touch. The fear is that people exposing themselves or viewing another in a state of undress will eventually move on to more serious sexual crimes.
Boulder County Police Will Side With Accuser
Our biggest issue in these cases is the mindless acceptance of allegations by police from people who want attention, who want an advantage in divorce custody cases, or who want revenge against another. Evidence is not necessary. Boulder Police will charge you and the district attorneys will prosecute you with no evidence. Judges appear helpless to stop the process. Your only hope is to find an experienced criminal defense attorney to defend you.
