Fort Collins Sexual Assault Attorneys

Being charged with sexual assault in Colorado is serious and terrifying, and these charges carry serious consequences. You need the top sex assault attorneys in Fort Collins on your side, fighting fiercely for your rights.


Sexual Assault Charges

Charges vary based on the individual circumstances surrounding your incident and the actual definition of what happened. Sexual assault is a broader term used to describe crimes that involve unwanted or offensive sexual contact. The charges range from assault all the way to battery, depending upon how many aggravating factors are at play (violence, date rape drugs, etc.). Child sexual assault applies when the victim is under the age of 15, with the age of the perpetrator being a deciding factor in statutory rape cases.

Sexual assault is an extremely serious charge to be facing, and it’s not something you should be dealing with alone. It’s imperative that you have a knowledgeable attorney on hand to help you navigate this confusing, rocky terrain.


Colorado Sexual Assault Penalties

Those accused of sexual assault could face a range of municipal, misdemeanor and even felony charges. Penalties depend on the severity of the offense(s), as well as the ages of the individuals involved, previous criminal history, force or violence, and where the act occurred.

Typically, sexual assault in Colorado is charged as either a misdemeanor or felony, with penalties almost always including registration as a sex offender. Some offenses require lifetime supervision provisions as well.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Our son was in need of representation, and we considered doing things on our own; but since we were unfamiliar with the law and procedures involved to resolve the issue, we contacted Schwartz and Waible. It was the best decision we could have made. The charges our son faced were unwarranted, and since the attorney succeeded in persuading the opposition to fairly evaluate the situation, we were able to sleep at night; and ultimately, the charges were dismissed. I give my highest recommendation for the law firm. We couldn’t be more pleased with their services and the outcome as a result.

They are some of the good guys to have in your corner. Thanks Schwartz & Waible for holding my hand through everything we went through the summer of 2010.
