Sex Assault Attorney Near Me in Denver | Man Shows Penis in Court to Prove Innocence 

Sex Assault Attorney Near Me in Denver | Man Shows Penis in Court to Prove Innocence 

Posted by Terry O'Malley | Jun 01, 2018 | 0 Comments

Having sex with someone who does not consent is charged as Sex Assault in Denver, Aurora, and Castle Rock. For alleged victims who do not know the person who assaulted them, the details are important when determining a suspect. A man was recently acquitted of the Sex Assault charges against him after he pointed out a pretty important inaccuracy between himself and the victim's description. According to the report, the woman claimed she was raped walking home one night. She described her assailant as a ‘dark skinned black male with big lips and black people hair.” She also described his private parts as being lighter than the rest of his skin. She used a photo lineup to identify the man and at trial he was ready to prove his innocence. During the proceedings, he got permission to show the court and the jurors his penis, to prove it wasn't lighter than the rest of his skin and show that they had the wrong man. While shocking, it worked because the jury found him not guilty.   

Arapahoe County Sex Assault Lawyer: Definition of Sexual Assault in Douglas County 

The Douglas and Arapahoe County, Colorado law definition of Sex Assault, as it applies in the case above – C.R.S. 18-3-402(1)(a) – is: 

“(1) Any actor who knowingly inflicts sexual intrusion or sexual penetration on a victim commits sexual assault if: 

(a) The actor causes submission of the victim by means of sufficient consequence reasonably calculated to cause submission against the victim's will;”

Force is usually involved in Sexual Assaults of strangers, like the one above. Threats or holding someone down can cause submission against another's will.
