Young Children Should Not Be Charged with Rape for Normal Childhood Behavior
We live in a paranoid world. Every child since the beginning of time has been curious about the opposite sex – every child plays “doctor” in Denver, Adams and Arapahoe County. The fact that this little girl is being charged with rape is absolutely ridiculous. Not only are funds and time being wasted that could go towards solving real violent crimes and helping true victims, this little girl is being needlessly traumatized.
In the past, this kind of conduct would merit a parent talking with the children and telling them that playing “doctor” with each other is not a good idea. Instead, a young, innocent, non-violent girl is facing charges of rape, and will face long-lasting consequences. Juveniles who are adjudicated in Douglas, Broomfield or Jefferson County may have to register as sex offenders for life, and be under the strict supervision of the Colorado Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB). They dictate many facets of a young persons' life, including where they can live (if other children are present in your home, they may have to move out), and undergo treatment and safety plans at school. Often, the SOMB's management is more detrimental than helpful. A child who must register as a sex offender will face many challenges throughout life.
The Importance of Working with an Experienced Sexual Assault Attorney in Denver
Today's culture is much more dangerous than it was in the past. What was considered normal behavior 20 or 30 years ago is now considered sexual assault and rape. If your child has been charged with rape or another sex offense, it is vital for their future that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight for their freedom. Adjudication for a sex offense could follow them for the rest of their life in Denver, Littleton and Highlands Ranch.Request a Free Consultation
