Sexual Assault On Children

Have you been accused of sexual assault on a child? You know that you need to take immediate action to defend yourself against this serious sex crime charge. You know that you need a Northern Colorado attorney who is willing to work tirelessly to protect your name and your future. You will find that attorney at Martin & Reed, LLC.

Where Did The Allegations Come From?

When we begin your case, we will first look at where the allegations came from. People like teachers and school counselors are mandatory reporters. If they see anything that could be evidence of child molestation or child sexual abuse, they need to report it to the police or social services to begin investigation. However, it is not their job to determine the validity of the allegations. An investigation may begin with very little basis. Our lawyer will review every detail. We will conduct our own investigation, gathering the facts necessary to defend you.

Even if you have not been charged but are merely under investigation, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible. Talk to us before you talk to police.

Defense Strategies in Child Sexual Assault Cases

One of our first steps in defending against child molestation charges is to look at the forensic interview that was conducted with the alleged victim. Was the child questioned by the police or by a child psychologist? Was the interview conducted properly? Were the questions asked potentially suggestive? How old was the child and did the child comprehend the questions asked? If we determine that an interview was improperly conducted and that the child was steered in a certain direction via suggestive questioning, we will seek to have the interview thrown out. This may lead to the case being dismissed entirely.
