The Long-Lasting Effects of Being Falsely Accused of Sexual Assault

View the transcript

Accusations of sexual assault can ruin somebody’s life, especially when the accused is innocent. Not only can these accusations follow them for life, but they can also turn their family against them, or ruin their family member’s reputations for associating with them. It can also lead to them confessing to being guilty, when they aren’t, to avoid extended jail time.

Denver Criminal Defense Attorney Doug Richards discusses his experience defending a college student who was accused of sexually assaulting a drunk college girl. The case was high-stress because the boy didn’t do what he was accused of and understood the extreme consequences it would have on his life if he got a guilty verdict.
