UNLAWFUL SEXUAL CONTACT

Unlawful sexual contact is one of the most serious charges and requires nothing less than an experienced and accomplished Denver sex crimes attorney to defend against it.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with unlawful sexual contact if an individual subjects another to any sexual contact and:

• The individual knows the victim does not consent; or,

• The individual knows that the victim is incapable of appraising the nature of the victim’s conduct; or,

• The victim is physically helpless and the individual knows that the victim is physically helpless and the victim has not consented; or,

• The individual has substantially impaired the victim’s power to appraise or control the victim’s conduct by utilizing, without the victim’s consent, any drug, intoxicant, or other means for the purpose of causing submission.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, unlawful sexual contact can be a class 4 felony, or a class 1 misdemeanor extraordinary risk crime subject to an enhanced sentencing range.
