Rape Charges in Denver
There are few criminal charges more serious than those of rape. This crime, which is referred to in the Colorado Criminal Code as "sexual assault," is a grave offense that carries harsh and life-changing criminal penalties for a conviction. While you are legally presumed to be innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, you may find that the simple fact of being accused of sex assault leads others to believe that you are guilty, due to the heinous and emotionally charged nature of the crime.

Sexual Assault Defense Strategies
The strategy for defending against rape charges depends on the nature of the allegations. If, for example, you have a preexisting relationship with the alleged victim, the strategy may involve looking for evidence that the accuser has a motive to see you convicted or that there is insufficient evidence to prove that the sexual contact was not consensual. On the other hand, if you are accused by someone whom you have not previously met, the goal may be to establish that you have been mistakenly identified as the rapist.
