Simply being accused of a sex crime comes with a host of social and career consequences. Colorado Springs residents do not have to be convicted of such crimes — and could be perfectly innocent — but they will still face the stigma that comes with such accusations.
Prior to conviction, completely innocent people could be shunned within their communities, lose their job and virtually have their entire lives turned upside down. Even if they achieve a verdict of "not guilty" or succeed in getting their case dropped or dismissed, the effects of the original accusation and charges may never go away.
It is because of the sensitivity surrounding sex crimes charges that the attorneys at the Foley Law Firm always strive to handle the defenses of our clients accused of sex crimes with the utmost delicacy. In every sex crimes case we take on, our defense goal is two-fold: 1) do everything we can in our legal power to prevent conviction, and/or minimize our clients' punishments in the event that a conviction is inevitable; and 2) take every effort to maintain our clients' privacy and confidentiality, while minimizing the social and career effects that accompany sex crimes accusations.
If you have been accused of a sex crime in Colorado Springs, the Foley Law Firm is here to help you fight back. We will meet with you to confidentially discuss your charges and the events surrounding your accusations and arrest. We will then advise you of your legal rights and options and offer you our recommendations for the next steps to take in your defense.
