Sexual assault charges filed against Stamford man

A sexual assault charge is a serious one, and if a person is found guilty in a court of law, he could find himself looking at serving several years in prison. He is also labeled as a sex offender and when he are released, he will have to abide by very strict rules if he doesn't want to be sent back to prison. It is a label that people wear the rest of their lives. Practically everywhere they go they are required to identify themselves as such.

A man in Stamford is being held in jail in lieu of two bonds of $20,000 after being charged with two counts of risk of injury to a minor, two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault, one count of providing alcohol to a minor and a single count of third-degree sexual assault. The charges stem from allegations that he sexually assaulted two young girls. Law enforcement says that he inappropriately touched a 14-year-old girl in 2010 and an 11-year-old girl in 1999.

No information was released on how the allegations were brought forward and what evidence the police have collected against the man. It is also unknown whether the girls will testify against him or what his connection to the alleged victims is, if any.

When a sexual assault case is older, it can be difficult to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that a person did what he or she is accused of doing. In this case, the man is accused of touching the girls and without physical evidence, the only testimony against him might be the girls' words. Therefore, it is important to avoid making a judgment until all of the evidence is revealed.
