What Are The Consequences of a Sex Crime Conviction?
The penalties you could receive if convicted of a sex crime depend on the
specifics offense, and can include steep fines, time in jail or prison
and a lengthy term of probation. Further, if you are convicted of a crime
such as sexual assault, unlawful sexual contact, sexual offense against
a child, or a crime involving child pornography, you will most likely
be required to register with local law enforcement and the Colorado Bureau
of Investigation as a sex offender. This means that your photograph, home
address, physical description and details about your conviction would
be made publicly available on a website maintained by the Colorado Department
of Public Safety.
Protect Your Rights After a Sex Crime Charge
The one thing you must
not do is speak about the case with anyone but your attorney. This is because
anything you say may end up being held against you as evidence. For example,
if you are accused of rape but tell the investigator that the sex was
consensual, you have thereby admitted that you had sex with the alleged
victim, whereas without this admission the prosecution would have had
the burden of proving this as an element of the crime.
Similarly, law enforcement agencies will sometimes use a "pretext
call," which involves having the victim place a phone call to the
suspect, asking for an apology or an explanation. What the suspect doesn't
know is that the call is being recorded for later use as evidence in court.
Protect your rights and your future by retaining my services
now without delay.
In the event that you are classified as a Sexually Violent Predator (SVP),
the local law enforcement agency will be required to notify the community
by holding a meeting and inviting your neighbors and local schools, senior
centers and recreation centers to attend.
With such grave consequences for your future, you simply have too much
at stake to take any chances with the outcome of this situation. Take
