Child Molestation Crimes

Allegations of child molestation are among the most serious sex crimes charges that can be filed against a person, particularly if:

  • An individual has been accused of repeatedly molesting a child (i.e., a pattern of sexual abuse)
  • The individual holds a position of trust in the community, such as a teacher, pastor, doctor, coach, etc.
  • The individual is accused of molesting multiple children
  • Other sex crimes charges — such as possession or distribution of child pornography — are also filed against the individual

Child Molestation Charges And Penalties Upon Conviction

According to Colorado law (C.R.S. 18-3-405), child molestation charges (which may also be referred to as sex assault on a child) can be filed when a person has been accused of engaging in sexual contact with an individual who is less than 15 years old and who is also at least four years younger than the alleged perpetrator. In such cases, child molestation charges can be filed as a:

  • Class 4 felony that will be an extraordinary risk crime, which means that a conviction can result in between one and 16 years in prison, fines between $2,000 and $500,000, and mandatory registration as a Colorado sex offender for life
  • Class 3 felony that will be an extraordinary risk crime, which can be punishable by between two and 32 years in prison (as well as mandatory registration as a Colorado sex offender for life and fines of up to $750,000), in the event that physical force or the threat of serious injury was used to facilitate sexual activity or that the molestation was committed as part of a pattern of sexual abuse

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
