Denver Rape Defense Lawyers

In Colorado, rape charges are a specific type of sexual assault charge classified as a felony and can be compounded by other criminal charges, such as Domestic Violence Charges,kidnapping charges and/or assault and battery charges. What can be more daunting than the complex nature of the criminal laws associated with rape charges is the fact that:

  • Force does not have to be alleged for rape charges to be filed, as victims can alleged that intoxication or some other factor prevented them from being able to consent to the act.
  • “Shield laws” in place in Colorado can prevent the behavior of the alleged victim from being part of the defense case.
  • Rape cases are often cases of “he said” versus “she said,” and typically they are decided based on which party seems to be more credible/telling the truth.
  • The DNA of the accused individual can be run through a database, and additional charges can be filed against the accused for previous crimes he allegedly committed.

Denver Rape Defense Attorneys – How We Can Help You

While the best strategy for a rape defense case will depend on the specifics of the case, in general, the Denver rape defense lawyers at the Adams Law Firm will likely base our defense strategies on one of the following:

  • No sexual contact occurred – This can mean that the alleged victim is a jilted lover or some other party looking to damage the reputation of the accused.
  • The sexual contact occurred and was consensual – Such cases can result when the alleged victim possibly regrets the sex act but did, in fact, consent to it.
  • The defendant has been mistakenly identified as the alleged offender – This may be the result of the victim being somehow impaired or confused and thinking that the defendant was the offender when he was, in fact, not.
