Sex Crime Lawyers in Teller County
If you've recently been arrested for a sex crime - such as molestation, possession of illegal internet pornography, or date rape - your mind is likely racing as you try to figure out how to respond effectively to the allegations. The state of Colorado takes sexual assault and other sex crimes very seriously. Depending on the nature of the charges, your past criminal history, and the evidence that the prosecution can assemble, you could potentially face years in jail, extremely strict probation and release terms, and permanent damage to your business and professional life.
In the wake of an arrest for a crime like indecent exposure, prostitution or sexual assault, you're likely emotionally confused. If you get interrogated in such a state, you might make admissions (even false confessions) that can hurt your case. Or you might be tempted to "plea bargain" yourself into a less than an ideal arrangement. If you've been convicted of even a minor sex crime, you may have to register as a sex offender, keep authorities updated on your living situations, and comply with difficult and embarrassing probation orders. Moreover, if you take ill-advised steps after your arrest – such as hiding computer evidence of illegal web pornography – you could compound your legal problems and face additional charges.
Preparing a Defense to Sex Crime Charges
Given how many legal missteps you can make, it's a good idea to consult with an experienced defense lawyer as soon as possible to strategize how best to approach the allegations. For instance, say a woman at work falsely accused you of sexual assault. You and your attorney will likely need to work fast to compile evidence to show that you did not commit any crime. If you wait too long, that evidence could disappear or could even be destroyed by the person making the allegations.
To build a vigorous defense, you want an attorney who has the skills, wherewithal, and intuition for the law to serve you best. Connect with a lawyer at The Bussey Law Firm, P.C, today by calling (719) 475-2555 to schedule a free consultation.
