Hiring a Sex Crime Attorney
There are numerous criminal charges that absolutely require a sex crime attorney in Denver, CO. Indecent exposure, unlawful sexual contact, sex assault or rape, enticement of a child, sexual exploitation of a child, sex assault on a child and internet luring of a child, among others. Penalties for these crimes vary significantly, with sexual assault on a child being more serious than most others, especially if the victim was 15 years of age or younger at the time of the assault. Those convicted can face anywhere from 2-6 years in prison to a life sentence, sex offender registration, and even a lifetime probation.
Due to the serious nature of these crimes and the penalties extending much further than a prison sentence, hiring the right sex crime attorney is critical. A Google search will give you a list of lawyers practicing in your area, such as in Denver, and provide links where you can do further research on them. Experience with the same types of cases you may be facing is important as well as their experience practicing in the court system where you are facing charges. If a defense attorney has worked with the prosecutor who is pressing charges or the judge overseeing the case, that can work in your favor.
You should review their success rate and their standing with the bar association and other applicable agencies. A knowledgeable attorney will be able to advise whether you should agree to a deal or take the risk of going to trial, which may potentially result in more serious penalties.
