Sex Offenses & SOMB Attorneys

Sexual Offense Lawyers

In Colorado, being charged with a sex crime is potentially the most destructive event in one’s life. Sex crimes are some of the most aggressively prosecuted and punished crimes in Colorado. Even a crime based on false accusations can lead to a conviction if the accused does not take immediate action. The serious nature and complexity of a sex crime charge make it even more vital to choose a Colorado Springs criminal defense attorney who specializes in these types of cases.

At the Gasper Law Group, we understand what a sex crime conviction or accusation, can do to your reputation. That’s why our experienced sex crimes defense attorneys handle each case with the highest level of discretion and work to resolve the matter as efficiently as possible.

The Gasper Law Group is a Colorado Springs law firm serving clients in El Paso County, Teller County, Pueblo County, Douglas County, Fremont County, and most of southern Colorado.

What is Indeterminate Sentencing?

An indeterminate sentencing structure is one where a sentence for a criminal offense is given as a range. This means that a person convicted faces supervision, via probation or incarceration, for the remainder of their life. A minimum prison term is always given but a release date is left open, for example, “10 years to life in prison.” Colorado’s indeterminate sentencing for sex offenses means that you could be facing up to a life sentence for certain crimes — even if the minimum sentence is two years. Your defense attorney must know what to do on the front end of your case to avoid this harsh outcome later.

Colorado Revised Statute, Section 18-1.3-1001 states:

“The general assembly hereby finds that the majority of persons who commit sex offenses, if incarcerated or supervised without treatment, will continue to present a danger to the public when released from incarceration and supervision… The general assembly therefore declares that a program under which sex offenders may receive treatment and supervision for the rest of their lives, if necessary, is necessary for the safety, health, and welfare of the state.”

Crimes subject to the indeterminate sentencing provisions of C.R.S. Section 18-1.3-1004 (offenses committed on or after November 1, 1998):

  • Sexual assault, C.R.S. Section 18-3-402
  • Sexual assault in the first degree, C.R.S. Section 18-3-402, as it existed prior to July 1, 2000
  • Sexual assault in the second degree, C.R.S. Section 18-3-403, as it existed prior to July 1, 2000
  • Felony unlawful sexual contact, C.R.S. Section 18-3-404(2)
  • Felony sexual assault in the third degree, C.R.S. Section 18-3-404(2) as it existed prior to July 1, 2000
  • Sexual assault on a child, C.R.S. Section 18-3-405
  • Sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust, C.R.S. Section 18-3-405.3
  • Aggravated sexual assault on a client by a psychotherapist, C.R.S. Section 18-3-405.5(1)
  • Enticement of a child, C.R.S. Section 18-3-305
  • Incest, C.R.S. Section 18-6-301
  • Aggravated incest, C.R.S. Section 18-6-302
  • Patronizing a prostituted child, C.R.S. Section 18-7-406
  • Attempt, conspiracy, or solicitation to commit any of these offenses if such attempt, conspiracy, or solicitation would constitute a class 2, 3 or 4 felony.

    "The professionalism, guidance, and candor I’ve received from each person in this law firm has been beyond reproach."

    I’m not one to have an extensive experience with law firms or lawyers and court in general. However, the professionalism, guidance, and candor I’ve received from each person in this law firm have been beyond reproach. Anytime, I mean, anytime, I’ve had a question about my case and the way forward, I was met with a friendly and constructive conversation about my case. There was never a doubt in my mind, that I made the right choice when I selected this law firm to represent me. Caryn and Stacie have been a wonderful blessing to my life and my legal proceedings. If you are looking for a no-BS law firm that has a significant reputation in the Springs area, I absolutely recommend this one. Even though I hope to not have to deal with this again, fingers crossed and every lucky charm, I’d trust this law firm with my representation to handle the hard stuff and give me ease with court proceedings. Thank you all for what you do and have done for me, my family, and my career. Bless you all.

    "I was absolutely floored with the knowledge and expertise that not only Caryn carries, but the firm as a whole."
    I, unfortunately, was involved with two separate situations within a few years of each other, which left me in quite a bind both times. I was lucky enough to have Caryn assist me in both cases and was absolutely floored with the knowledge and expertise that not only she carries, but the firm as a whole. One of the best, if not the best lawyers I've ever come across. Extremely nice and very honest. I was able to resolve my situations with minimal impact and continue my life without fear of being held back.

    "A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence"
    Highly professional team of attorneys and paralegal staff who work hard to reach the best outcomes for their clients. A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence, and discovery with effective preparation of cases entrusted to them. The partner representing me, Ms. Caryn Adams was truly impressive in her knowledge of the law, her empathy, and her care for getting the best possible resolution in my favor in pre-trial negotiation. And I have no doubt she and her team would be just as dedicated and efficient in more complex defense situations. I recommend them highly and without reservation in all areas of the law in which they are eminently qualified.

How Our Sexual Crime Attorneys Can Help You

Our Colorado Springs attorneys are extensively familiar with the Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB) and the Sex Offender Specific Evaluations (SOSE), knowledge which may prove critical if you are convicted or plead guilty. Our sex crime lawyers can explain your rights as they relate to various charges.

We represent clients in sex offense cases, including:

  • Sexual assault (rape/attempted rape)
  • Unlawful sexual contact (minor or vulnerable adult)
  • Sexual assault on a minor by someone in a position of trust
  • Enticement of a minor
  • Patronizing a prostituted child
  • Online solicitation/exploitation of a minor for sex
  • Possession or distribution of child pornography
  • Incest
  • Indecent exposure
  • Failure to register as a sex offender

Should I Take a Plea or Go To Trial?

Our sex crimes defense attorneys have won numerous sex offense cases at trial and skillfully negotiated pleas in other cases. The decision to take your chances with a jury or to negotiate a deal with prosecutors is always difficult. Our criminal defense attorneys carefully consider the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence, the potential penalties for conviction, and what we know about the DA and the judge involved in your case. Our sexual offense attorneys can often work something out to avoid or minimize prison. Ultimately, the decision is always yours whether to accept a plea or take your case to trial.

For example, we have represented a married man accused of having sex with his stepdaughter. Although she was 18 and not related by blood, the prosecutors considered it unlawful sexual contact and aggravated incest because of the familial relationship. That case was resolved out of court and without prison time.

Many of our cases involve consensual sex with persons who, by law, cannot consent to sex. For example, we represented a 19-year-old man accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl who lied about her age. The girl’s sister also vouched that the “victim” was 18. The client was acquitted at trial.

No matter if a plea deal or trial is the best route for your case, you can count on our sex crime lawyers to work to resolve the matter in a way that is most beneficial for you.
