Aggravated Incest (CRS 18-6-301): Prison Life for those Convicted

Posted by Kyle B. Sawyer | Jun 14, 2013 | 0 Comments

Going to prison for a felony sex crime such as Aggravated Incest (CRS 18-6-301), Enticement of a Child (CRS 18-3-305) or Internet Luring of a Child (CRS 18-3-306) leaves the accused open to many risks not normally associated with jail time in a misdemeanor sex crime. Jails are run by the County sheriff's office. And, each county has their own jail. Denver, Jefferson or Douglas County jails are just a few of the facilities we work with daily. Jails are meant for short periods of incarceration, mostly misdemeanor crimes with sentences of two years or less, or holding of an individual immediately after an arrest in Adams, Weld, or Arapahoe County.

Prison Sentences for Aggravated Incest Charges

Prisons are built to accommodate inmates for an extended period of time. People are usually sentenced to prison after committing a felony crime (like Aggravated Incest) which requires a sentence to a correctional facility. Because people spend such a long time in prison, communities develop. And, a prison culture is formed. This culture may include gangs or gang violence.

The Colorado Department of Corrections (DOC)  has recently reported as many as 10% of the inmates housed in a state penitentiary or correctional facility for crimes like Aggravated Incest, belong to a gang. While the Department of Corrections states inmates are not allowed to possess any gang propaganda or organizing documents such as bi-laws, it is not illegal for an inmate to be part of a gang. Dealing with the gang culture in prisons is risky and scary. Prisons are harsh places. And, inmates are regularly targeted by their peers who are also incarcerated.
