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.

Our family was in need of a lawyer twice in the past 5 years. Both times we called upon Schwartz and Waible Law Firm. They worked very hard and kept us informed every step of the way. Helped understand the ins and the outs of the law. We were very pleased with the out come of both cases. Hopefully won’t need further need, but if we are won’t hesitate to call upon this law firm. So if you are looking for a Law Firm that works as a team, are caring about their clients, and will do the best job possible you may want to call upon Schwartz and Waible. Thank you so much for your help. Sharon and Jim, January, 2011 We welcome this opportunity to extol Kirk Waible, one of the finest lawyers we’ve ever known. Our background is in education—we are retired after long careers of teaching classes from kindergarten through graduate school. During the past year (2010), Kirk represented someone very close to us. In a difficult, often convoluted, case, Kirk cut right through the mazes of the legal system to present his client’s defense so effectively that the outcome was far more successful than we had ever hoped. We found Kirk to be personable, smart, thorough, accessible, and well-versed in the law. Years ago, I (Jim) worked at length for a state legislature and dealt with many, many lawyers on a daily basis. Some of them were brilliant in their profession. But I feel Kirk stands head and shoulders above even the best of them. We would engage him in an instant to represent us in any legal matter.
