Assault is any intentional act that causes another person fear of being physically harmed. There are several different types of assault we deal with most at Rachel A. Michael, including the following:
Sexual assault is any sexual activity that occurs without consent of the victim, including a person who is not capable of consenting due to alcohol, drugs or some other kind of incapacitation. This can include many crimes, such as rape, sexual abuse, incest, molestation, sexual harassment and sexual exploitation. Domestic violence is any pattern of abusive behavior that is used by one partner to obtain or maintain power over the other. This can take many forms, including sexual, emotional, psychological or economical.
If you are convicted on sexual assault or domestic violence charges, you may be required to register as a sex offender and comply with community notification laws. It is best to consult with an assault defense attorney in Fort Collins if you have questions about required sex offender registration.
