The term “sex crime” can mean a number of different offenses. It is most commonly defined as the use of force or coercion to engage another person in a sexual act that person does not want. People convicted of certain sex crimes may have to register on a state or national sex offender registry.

- Enticement of a Child
- Internet Luring of a Child
- Sexual Assault
- Unlawful Sexual Contact
- Sexual Assault on a Child
- Sexual Assault on a Child: Position of Trust
- Internet Sexual Exploitation of a Child
- Invasion of Privacy for Sexual Gratification
- Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
- Trafficking in Adults
- Trafficking in Children
- Coercion of Involuntary Servitude
- Indecent exposure

Our Denver criminal defense attorney has worked with clients throughout the entire state of Colorado. The stigma of a sex offense accusation causes some people to plead guilty quickly in hopes of making the situation go away quickly. Often, other people will try to prove their innocence by providing information that is then used against them.
If you are facing such an accusation, even if you have not yet been formally charged, you should discuss your situation with an experienced sex crimes defense attorney as soon as possible. Our Denver criminal defense lawyer understands that many times these accusations are not true. Our lawyer is committed to building a strong defense for those wrongly accused of a sex crime.
Many times, people believe that if they refuse to talk to the police, they will be viewed as uncooperative and guilty. As a result, people come to us after giving multiple recorded interviews or a polygraph lie detector test to the police. Most of the time the police have already decided whether or not you will be charged; they are just using these interviews to gather more evidence against you.
No matter the circumstance, our criminal defense attorney will carefully review every aspect of your case use his years of experience to build the best defense for you. As soon as you enlist our services, we will begin exploring your options, whether it be a dismissal of the charges, an acquittal after a jury trial, or obtaining the best plea deal available.
A sex crime conviction may result in any number of penalties, which vary greatly depending upon factors such as the severity of the crime committed, whether a child was involved, whether violence, threats or force were used and whether the defendant has any prior criminal convictions on their record. Some of the sentencing penalties which a Court may impose in a sex crime case include the following:
- Imprisonment in County Jail, or up to life in State Prison
- Sex Offender Registration
- Fines and Court Fees
- Community Service
- Treatment/Sex Offender Counseling
