Rape Offenses in Colorado

In general, rape involves engaging in sexual intercourse or some other sexual contact with another person without their consent. Colorado’s criminal code prohibits acts of sexual assault and unlawful sexual contact. Depending on the circumstances, rape can qualify as both or either a sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact.

When a rape is committed through the use of force, intimidation, or threat of force, the offense qualifies as a class 4 felony. If a rape was committed with the help of one or more other persons, or if the victim suffered serious bodily injury as a result, the offense is a class 2 felony. The victim’s inability to consent to sexual contact is a significant factor. Lack of consent can occur in various situations.

Unlawful sexual contact can occur in the following situations:

  • The victim did not give consent regarding the sexual conduct
  • The victim was incapable of appraising the nature of the sexual conduct
  • The victim was physically helpless and had not consented to the sexual conduct
  • The victim was substantially impaired by a drug or other intoxicant
  • The victim was under the age of 18

WE'VE GOT THEM!
  • Will my license be suspended if I am arrested for DUI?
    When you have been charged with driving under the influence, the DMV will begin the license suspension process. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, you can face a suspension of up to five years. Challenging a license suspension requires you to request a DMV hearing within seven days of you being pulled over. The results of this trial may be a probationary license that allows you to keep driving or the installation of an interlock ignition device that will allow you to drive only after you have proven your sobriety.
  • How are DUI and DWAI offenses different?

    DUI, or driving under the influence, is usually charges as a misdemeanor that arises when you blood alcohol content is .08% or above. Driving while ability impaired, or DWAI, is an infraction when your BAC is higher than .05 but less than .08. DUI offenses carry more serious charges, including up to a year in jail, $1,000 in fines, and community service. A DWAI conviction will result in up to 180 days in jail, $200 in fines, and up to 48 hours of community service. Our Denver DUI lawyers can challenge the results of breath and blood tests and have a successful record in many cases.

  • Can’t I just accept the consequences of an arrest and move on?

    It can be incredibly stressful to face a first offense but accepting your conviction will not simply allow you to move on. When you have a criminal record, many avenues become barred for you, including some professional licenses, the ability to join the military, and having other rights that are granted to citizens. At Fife Luneau, P.C., our Denver criminal defense attorneys work hard to fight for you and your record.
