“Sex offenders are always men”: a common stereotype we may hear or think about on a frequent basis. But this statement is not always the case. When females are also identified as sex offenders, then, how does the law see them—the same as male sex offenders, or different? The justice system in Denver, Arapahoe and Jefferson County, fights for both genders equally.
Not too long ago, there was a news story about women sex offenders and what drove them to become identified as sex offenders. According to the article, they are rare—96 percent of the offenders that were revealed in 1999 were men, and because of that infrequency, it is assumed it's easier to profile a man as a sex offender. Interestingly enough, the article says that even if women are convicted of a crime, they may still be seen as lonely rather than sexually aroused.
Registering as a Sex Offender in Denver
The severity of a crime can determine the frequency that you would have to register—either annually or quarterly, and each time you move somewhere else. If you move to Colorado, you need to register in a time frame of five days, and if you do not register in that time period, you will be charged with Failure to Register as A Sex Offender in Colorado. Police officers in cities such as Littleton, Highlands Ranch, or Englewood, can arrest individuals if they believe they have failed to register as sex offenders.
