Child Molestation

Accused of Child Molestation in Colorado? Get a defense lawyer who's committed to protecting you.

In Colorado, being accused of child molestation is a serious matter.

Not only are prosecutors and law enforcement extremely aggressive in seeking maximum penalties, but this type of sexual criminal charge often draws the attention of the media. And media attention can quickly spiral out of control into a full-on smear campaign. This hysteria and attention are extremely hard on family members, as they bear witness to media outlets portraying their loved one as a pariah and a guilty villain, even if that’s not the truth.

When facing a child molestation charge, there is so much at stake, including: jail time, your job, future career opportunities, your reputation, and your relationships. It’s vital you have an experienced criminal defense team and a specialized child abuse defense attorney by your side.
