and Wyoming Criminal
Sex crimes are some of the most serious of all criminal charges. You need someone in your corner who understands the impact these types of cases have.
The mere accusation of a sex crime can be traumatic and emotional and can tarnish someone’s personal life, ruin a career, and destroy standing within a community, including relationships with friends, family, neighbors or co-workers. Frequently, these cases begin with a great deal of media coverage that can increase these consequences. I have learned over my many years of practice to decrease the amount and tone of media coverage in order to mitigate this impact on my client’s lives.
Sex offenses in Colorado carry minimum statutory consequences that can include:
Colorado courts also recognize “indeterminate sentencing” for all sex crimes. This means every sentence is a potential life sentence. A Sex Offender Management Board sets terms and conditions of release, requiring convicted sex offenders to participate in sex offender therapy. Failure to participate can mean no release.
More information about Colorado’s sex offender sentencing scheme can be found here.
Even upon release, offenders may face a compulsory sex offender registration, making it difficult to find housing, a job, or to blend into a neighborhood. Failure to register has become a federal crime.
The seriousness of these consequences requires the most serious defense possible.
In more than 30 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer, I have worked on some of the most serious sex crime cases in Colorado.
I understand the worry that comes with the allegation of a sex crime, and that’s why I fight vigorously for my clients in state and federal courts throughout Colorado and Wyoming.
I am prepared to work on cases involving:
