Sexual assault is one of the most serious charges and requires nothing less than an experienced and accomplished Colorado sex assault attorney to defend against it.
Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with sexual assault if the individual inflicts sexual intrusion or sexual penetration on another if:
• The individual causes submission of the victim by means of sufficient consequence reasonably calculated to cause submission against the victim’s will; or,
• The individual knows that the victim is incapable of appraising the nature of the victim’s conduct; or,
• The individual knows that the victim submits erroneously, believing the actor to be the victim’s spouse; or,
• At the time of the commission of the act, the victim is less than fifteen years of age and the actor is at least four years older than the victim and is not the spouse of the victim.
Depending upon the circumstances of the case, sexual assault can be a class 2 felony, a class 3 felony, a class 4 felony, or a class 1 misdemeanor.
