Unlawful Sexual Contact Attorney Near Me in Denver | Waitress Body Slams Man for Grabbing Her Butt

Posted by Terry O'Malley | Jul 24, 2018 | 0 Comments

Touching another person's intimate parts without permission is charged as Unlawful Sexual Contact in Denver, Aurora, and Castle Rock. A man's good time at a restaurant ended with some body aches along with criminal charges after he grabbed a waitress' butt when walking by. The waitress did not take likely to the contact, and immediately grabbed the man by his shirt and slammed him to the ground. The encounter was captured on surveillance video, and after reviewing it, police decided to arrest and charge the man. In Douglas and Arapahoe County, Unlawful Sexual Contact would be the resulting charge.

Douglas County Unlawful Sexual Contact Lawyer: Definition of Unlawful Sexual Contact in Arapahoe County

The Arapahoe and Douglas County, Colorado law definition of Unlawful Sexual Contact – C.R.S. 18-3-404 – is:

“(1) Any actor who knowingly subjects a victim to any sexual contact commits unlawful sexual contact if:

(a) The actor knows that the victim does not consent; or

(b) The actor knows that the victim is incapable of appraising the nature of the victim's conduct; or

(c) The victim is physically helpless and the actor knows that the victim is physically helpless and the victim has not consented; or

(d) The actor has substantially impaired the victim's power to appraise or control the victim's conduct by employing, without the victim's consent, any drug, intoxicant, or other means for the purpose of causing submission; or

(f) The victim is in custody of law or detained in a hospital or other institution and the actor has supervisory or disciplinary authority over the victim and uses this position of authority, unless incident to a lawful search, to coerce the victim to submit; or

(g) The actor engages in treatment or examination of a victim for other than bona fide medical purposes or in a manner substantially inconsistent with reasonable medical practices.”

Most often, like in the case above, we see this charged under subsection (a) – the victim does not consent.
