Act Now to Avoid Jail Time

In the state of Colorado, sexual assault on a child may be prosecuted as a Class 2, 3, or Class 4 felony. In sexual assault on a child cases, the defendant may be accused of forcing a minor into a sexual act, threatening a minor with violence if they do not allow a sexual act to be performed, or both. This may include threatening a minor with death, bodily injury, pain, or kidnapping against themselves of someone else as punishment for not letting the defendant perform a sexual act.

Charges of sexual assault on a minor may carry punishments including:

  • A 8 year to the rest of your life in prison sentence and/or $3,000-$750,000 in fines for Class 3 felony charges
  • A 2 year to the rest of your life in prison sentence and/or $2,000-$500,000 in fines for Class 4 felony charges

Because the state of Colorado persecutes statutory charges, a defendant may be sentenced for this crime even if the minor in question willingly participated in a sex act. You may also be sentenced to lifetime registry on the Colorado sex offender list if you are found guilty of sexual assault on a child.

Creating a Strong Defense

As severe as the penalties for sexual assault on a child are, there are numerous defenses you may be able to use against this charge in a court of law. A skilled attorney will be able to analyze the case from all angles, finding any holes in the victim’s story and determining where the prosecution may have blind spots or gaps in their knowledge.

With the assistance of a Colorado sexual assault defense lawyer, you may be able to prove:

  • If the parent of the alleged victim coached them on what to say
  • If law enforcement pressured the alleged victim into agreeing with a false story
  • If counsel pressured the alleged victim into fabricating charges
