Criminal Sexual Abuse

While it's important to be vigilant about protecting the safety of children, in some cases, adults or children themselves may cross the line and falsely accuse a person of sexual abuse. Sexual abuse allegations and charges are incredibly serious, as they can result in:

  • Lengthy prison sentences (or even indeterminate prison sentences in which a person is imprisoned indefinitely until the parole board has decided he should be released)
  • Mandatory registration as a Colorado sex offender, which can be a lifelong punishment in the most serious cases
  • Loss of parental rights over one's own children
  • Loss of a person's reputation, family and career — even if the individual is ultimately acquitted of the sexual abuse charges

Colorado Sexual Abuse Laws

Colorado law (C.R.S. 19-1-103) defines criminal charges of sexual abuse as involving the use, persuasion, enticement or coercion of any child in the engagement in any sexual activity or conduct (or for the purpose of stimulating such activity). According to the law, sexual abuse is general term that can, more specifically, encompass the following sex crimes charges:

  • Sex assault on a child, which is a class 4 felony (unless force or threats are used or there is a pattern of sexual abuse)
  • Sex assault on a child by an individual in a position of trust, which is a class 3 felony (A position of trust can refer to a teacher, priest, coach, doctor, etc.)
  • Sexual exploitation of a child, which is a class 4 felony
  • Incest, which is a class 4 felony

“ 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
