Colorado Sex Crime Lawyers
Some of the most serious criminal charges in Colorado are related to sex crimes and you should not attempt to face these charges alone. Many sex crimes are considered felonies, and can carry with them extensive prison sentences, treatment, and supervision. In some cases, an offender can be sentenced to life in prison or lifetime supervision. Even lesser misdemeanor crimes that do not impose prison sentences have serious consequences, including extensive treatment and supervision.
In addition to incarceration, treatment, and supervision, conviction of any sex crime results in having to register as a sex offender. There are many difficulties that come with being a registered sex offender. Registered sex offenders often struggle to gain employment, find housing, and maintain personal relationships with friends and family. Moreover, the damage to a registered sex offender's reputation can be severe.
