McDermott Stuart & Ward LLP is proud to announce a significant victory in a matter handled by partner Tom Ward resulting in dismissal of sexual assault on a child charges in Durango, Colorado.

Colorado state felonies are serious charges, and the client had been accused of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust. As soon as MSW took on the case, Tom and the team began working to build a strong defense against these Colorado sex crime charges.

Criminal Lawyers in Denver, Colorado

Tom Ward’s experience and expertise in criminal defense have built his reputation as one of Colorado’s best criminal defense attorneys. His background was also instrumental in getting the sexual assault on a child charges dismissed. His cross-examinations of the filing detective and the forensic interviewer at a preliminary hearing exposed significant inconsistencies and weaknesses in the evidence against our client. Later, Tom filed numerous pre-trial motions attacking the reliability of critical parts of the prosecution’s evidence. The following day, the prosecutor filed a motion to dismiss the case citing an inability to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt. One day after granting the motion to dismiss, the La Plata County District Court entered an order sealing all records concerning the criminal case.
