Types of Sex Crimes

Sex crimes include a wide range of sex-related offenses, and all of them are taken extremely seriously by prosecutors in Utah. At our firm, we are equipped to help you and your family responsibly and aggressively defend against charges related to:

  • Rape– Under Utah law, rape refers to sexual intercourse with another person without the person's consent. This includes alcohol-related rape, date rape, and sex with a minor (statutory rape).
  • Object rape – The offense of object rape refers to nonconsensual genital or anal penetration with any substance, device, or object other than the mouth or genitals.
  • Forcible sodomy – This offense refers to any nonconsensual sexual act that involves contact between the actor's genitals and another person's mouth or anus.
  • Aggravated sexual assault – The charge of aggravated sexual assault refers to the use of heightened force during a rape, object rape, or forcible sexual abuse.
  • Sexual battery – Sexual battery refers to intentional, nonconsensual touching of another person in a sexual manner that does not rise to the level of a specific, more serious offense.

In addition to these charges, we also handle cases involving allegations public indecency, molestation, human trafficking, and internet-related sex crimes.

What Are the Penalties for Sex Crimes in Utah?

In the state of Utah, there are serious penalties for those convicted of a sex crime. Most sex crimes are handled as felonies, which means that the criminal penalties are likely to include lengthy prison sentences, probation, and the possibility of having to register as a sex offender. The penalties become even more severe in cases involving minors. Not only do you have worry about facing these penalties, but on top of that, your reputation will be permanently destroyed. That is why you need the help from an experienced sex crime attorney at Collins Rupp, P.C.

Protecting Your Rights

One of the most difficult parts of defending against sex crime charges is the public perception that often accompanies such cases. In many situations, a person accused of a sex crime is presumed to be guilty by police, prosecutors, and the community at large. After all, why would charges have been filed if the person was not guilty, right?

At Collins Rupp, P.C., we firmly believe in the principle of "innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt." When you choose our firm to help with your case, you can trust that we will treat you with dignity and respect throughout the proceedings. We will also work hard to limit the damage to your personal and professional reputation. Regardless of the charges you may be facing, we will work hard to get you the best possible results for your unique situation.
