Denver Police Make Arrests for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

Posted by Kyle B. Sawyer | Mar 01, 2012 | 0 Comments

Recently, Colorado police conducted a sweep to catch sex offenders with warrants for their arrest because of a Failure to Register as a Sex Offender (CRS 18-3-412.5). The Colorado Bureau of Investigation, whose jurisdiction includes counties like Denver, Jefferson, Arapahoe, Adams, Douglas, Larimer, and Weld, says that there are 14,831 sex offenders in Colorado. Eight hundred and thirty-one of them have failed to properly register and have warrants for their arrest. During the sweep, police traveled to Englewood, Littleton, Highlands Ranch, Aurora, Arvada, Colorado Springs, Cherry Creek, Westminster, Thornton, and all over the Denver-metro area on tips from landlords and neighbors to find sex offenders who were convicted of charges like Enticement of a Child (CRS 18-3-305), Internet Luring of a Child (CRS 18-3-306), or Unlawful Sexual Contact (CRS 18-3-404).

A sex crime conviction is very serious and the consequences are harsh. These people wanted a chance to try to live a normal life without the restrictions that come from having to register as a sex offender, but because they failed to abide by those harsh requirements they had police knocking on their door. Now they have to deal with new sex offender charges because they failed to register properly.

Colorado police are very serious about finding unregistered sex offenders.  Denver Police are always looking for unregistered sex offenders and will find them. They do not care about circumstances; they care about making arrests. Do not take the chance they may track you down. If you think you may have a warrant out for your arrest because of failure to register as a sex offender, call the experienced attorneys at the O'Malley Law Office at 303-830-0880. Together, we can protect your future.
