Colorado Springs residents accused of sex crimes will be subjected to a lot of different police investigations. Every aspect of their lives will be laid bare before the court during their criminal proceedings. Indeed, the process of going through litigation for sex crimes can be frightening, humiliating and extremely difficult to endure.
If you are facing sex crime-related charges, you may want to consider having an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side. At the Foley Law Firm, we are experienced criminal lawyers ready to take on the defense of anyone accused of sex crimes in the Colorado Springs and El Paso County areas.
Whenever someone comes to us after having been accused of a sex crime, we will have an in-depth meeting with the person to learn about the circumstances of the arrest, the nature of the charges and what happened. This meeting will be held with the utmost confidence and privacy, in a judgment-free environment. We want to know the facts of your case so that we can advise you on the criminal defense strategies that will be most appropriate for your situation and charges.
Every criminal defense will be different depending on the facts of the case. In some situations, if evidence against our client is extremely strong — and if it is likely that a conviction will occur — we will advise our clients to try and reach a plea bargain with the prosecution. A plea bargain usually involves pleading guilty to one or more charges in exchange for a dramatic reduction in the severity of punishments upon conviction. Alternatively, if the evidence against our client is weak, then we will advise our client to fight the charges at trial. If successful, we may be able to get some or all of our clients’ charges dismissed in these situations.
