Colorado Sexual Assault Defense Lawyers
Sexual assault is a felony crime that can land a person in prison for years and result in a lifelong criminal record, as well as a lifelong obligation to register as a Colorado sex offender, if the accused individual is ultimately convicted of this charge. While sexual assault charges are typically filed as a Class 4 felony crime, which can be punishable by up to 16 years in prison, the charges may be filed as a Class 3 felony crime, which can be punishable by up to 32 years in prison, if:
- Physical force or violence was allegedly used in the commission of the sexual assault.
- The alleged victim was threatened with serious injury and/or was kidnapped during the course of the alleged sexual assault.
- The alleged victim was drugged during the course of the alleged sexual assault.
Sexual assault charges may be even more serious than a Class 3 felony if the alleged victim was a child, multiple children were allegedly sexually assaulted and/or the alleged perpetrator held a position of trust (such as being a teacher, a coach, a pastor, a doctor, etc.).
