  • Is this a crime? Is this a form of sexual abuse? Is this sexual exploitation?

    A husband took a nude picture of himself and his wife involved in a sex act then sent that picture to another woman via a text message without the wife's permission or knowledge?

    Raymond’s Answer

    In several states a "new" criminal law may fit this suggested fact pattern. The new laws make it chargeable to disseminate pornographic pictures of an adult without the permission(consent) of the subject(s) of the picture or video. Local law governs thus in your question Colorado law will govern. This is a potential sex crime question.

    Raymond’s Answer

    Detailed analysis of the record in your case will provide your local experienced criminal defense lawyer with the information needed to respond to your inquiry. It's what your attorney did or didn't do in your case as opposed to what he has done in other cases that is important. Pleading guilty is an important factor that usually works against the person who is asking for a new trial but it is not an absolute.
    Only after the detailed analysis will an attorney give you an opinion regarding your options.
