Accused of Enticement of a Child in Denver? We’re Not Surprised

Accused of Enticement of a Child in Colorado? Contact a lawyer to defend you.
Have you been accused of Enticement of a Child in Denver, Adams, or Jefferson County? We're not surprised. This is because it is simple to be charged with this sex offense. Don't believe me? Let's look at a few circumstances in which you could be accused of Enticement of a Child:

Ask Yourself a Few Questions:

  • Have you ever offered a ride to one of your children's friends?
  • Have you pulled a young child aside to chat with them privately about their behavior during a play date?
  • Have you ever been alone with a young teenager in your own home, school, or other private area?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could easily be accused of Enticement of a Child. Even harmless situations can be taken out of context and misconstrued in our “believe the child” culture. Additionally, District Attorneys prosecute cases with absolutely no evidence. When false accusations or misunderstandings are paired with the gullible mindset of DAs in Arapahoe, Douglas, and El Paso County, innocent people go to prison.

Severe Punishment for Enticement of a Child Conviction

Enticement of a Child is usually a class 4 felony. But, this crime is subject to indeterminate sentencing, which means a person will be sentenced a minimum of two years to life if convicted. Their release is dependent on their completion of sex offender treatment (unfortunately there is a shortage of treatment providers in the Colorado Department of Corrections, which means you could wait a long time for treatment), and the decision of the Colorado Parole Board. A person convicted of this sexual offense will also be required to register as a sex offender.

I've Been Falsely Accused! Can I Trust the Police?

Unfortunately, many people think they can trust the police. We are taught this as a child. This simply isn't true as adults. If you have been contacted by Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, or Littleton police regarding accusations of Enticement of a Child, remember that you are the suspect. They already are biased in the alleged victim's favor. Don't give them any information. In fact, don't even speak to them. Instead, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.
