Plea Bargains for Sexual Assault on a Child (CRS 18-3-405) Charges

Posted by Kyle B. Sawyer | Mar 05, 2013 | 0 Comments

Facing serious charges of Sexual Assault on a Child (CRS 18-3-405), Enticement of a Child (CRS 18-3-305) or Unlawful Sexual Contact (CRS 18-3-404) is scary and life changing. Many times, when police contact a defendant regarding these serious charges, the person arrested wants to make it all go away as quickly as possible. Law enforcement, police officers, and district attorneys know that the average resident of Denver, Jefferson, or Arapahoe County is not fully aware of the complexities of the law. They use this to their advantage in hopes to scare or intimidate defendants into giving a false confession or taking a quick plea deal.

When dealing with police officers, it is best to say nothing. Even if you say something that corroborates your innocence, anything you say can be used against you in a court of law. It is best to keep your cards close to your chest when dealing with intimidating police officers, detectives, or enthusiastic District Attorneys in Adams, Larimer, Weld, and Douglas County. They get paid to convict you, and are not your friends.

Do not be bullied into taking a plea deal from a fast talking DA. District Attorneys know that any conviction or guilty plea to a crime will stay on your record for the rest of your life. Many times people do not think of the lasting implications of accepting a plea deal or signing a confession. They want the trouble to end as quickly and cheaply as possible. Many district attorneys take advantage of hard working citizens by making them think they have no other option than to take a plea deal.

It is important to keep a level head when dealing these experienced, government employees. They have an unfair advantage because they know the law and the ways to get around it if they have to. It is always in your best interest to seek expert counsel who can make sure you will not be taken advantage of or bullied. We will fight for you and protect all you have.

If police arrest you or contact you regarding felony sex offense charges, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and contact the experienced criminal defense attorneys at the O'Malley Law office at 303-830-0880. Together, we can protect your future.
