We can walk you through your options, weigh each and every argument, and help you create an action plan for a proactive legal defense.
Examples of Sex Charges in Colorado
When thinking of sex crimes, one may go straight to the obvious examples of rape and assault. However, there is actually a wide range of crimes that are classified under this category, including child pornography, internet exploitation, lewd conduct, prostitution, indecent exposure, and more. Regardless of what you are accused of, all these charges are incredibly serious. Being proactive about your defense is always the best policy to follow.

At Deere Law, we feel compelled to help you manage your situation in whatever capacity that we can.
