A Colorado man sentenced to twenty years of Sex Offender Intensive Supervised Probation (SOISP) asked that he not be allowed to fulfill his probation, but be sent back to the department of corrections to finish his sentence. People are sentenced to serve Sex Offender Intensive Supervised Probation in Denver, Jefferson, Arapahoe, Adams, Douglas, Larimer and Weld County because of sex offense convictions. This man was convicted of Sexual Exploitation of a Child (CRS 18-6-403), but people convicted of Internet Luring of a Child (CRS 18-3-306), Unlawful Sexual Contact (CRS 18-3-404), or other sex offenses may find themselves in the same position and dealing with intensive supervised probation. This man believes that twenty years outside of prison in SOISP is worse than staying behind bars for twelve years.
The strictness of the program the government utilizes shows how difficult it is for a convicted sex offender to integrate themselves back into society. This is proven by the fact that many people violate their probation. This man decided to take matters into his own hands and declare that he was not going to let himself be put through those circumstances anymore. He was tired of reporting to a probation officer, having his every move monitored by an ankle bracelet, going through group therapy and treatment, and dealing with a loss of privacy. He thought that living in a world where his rights were limited was less favorable than going back to prison.
Criminal Defense lawyers in Denver, Englewood, Littleton, Aurora, and Greeley know that the county district attorneys and prosecutors make it extremely difficult for people to get over a sex offense conviction. The government is setting people up to fail by requiring a punishment that follows them much longer than their original sentence was.
