Sex-related offenses are extremely serious, and even more harrowing is the fact that upon conviction of serious sex offenses, Colorado judges are allowed to impose sentences that have no clearly defined endpoint. For example, a defendant who receives a sentence of two years to life should understand that they will be incarcerated for a minimum of two years with no defined maximum, and any length of incarceration will be followed by parole. Parole, however, is almost impossible to achieve, and if a defendant is paroled, the parole conditions are a rigorous program that lasts throughout the offender’s lifetime. Because of the extent and seriousness of the penalties associated with a sex crimes conviction, an experienced sex offender lawyer at the Denver Law Offices of Decker & Jones should be consulted immediately once you have been charged with a sex crime or if you know that you are being investigated for any kind of sexual offense.
The mere accusation of a sexual offense can carry a stigma with it that can break up your family, take you away from your children, cost you your job, and follow you throughout the rest of your life, regardless of your guilt or innocence. These are difficult cases because they are the type of cases everyone, including prosecutors, love to hate. These cases are also dangerous because they can go all the way through a jury trial on nothing more than the statement of one witness and with little to no physical evidence. That is why you will want nothing less than a highly skilled, experienced, and aggressive defense that your sexual assault defense lawyer at the Denver Law Offices of Decker & Jones can provide.
