He allegedly told her he would introduce her to celebrities and include her in an MTV special if she engaged in sexual acts with him and two other men. The mother of the 12-year-old found out about the situation and called police. Police then staged a sting operation where they posed as the 12-year-old girl.

Enticement of a Child Definition – Persuading a Child for Sexual Purposes in Denver

Enticement of a Child has strict sentencing parameters – both with probation and in prison cases.

Enticement of a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-305, is charged in Denver and Arapahoe County whenever a person invites or persuades, or attempts to invite or persuade, a child under the age of fifteen years to enter any vehicle, building, room, or secluded place with the intent to commit sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact upon the child. Since police pretended to be the 12-year-old and planned to meet all three defendants at an abandoned home for sex, they could each be charged for trying to persuade the 12-year-old girl to commit sexual acts with them in a secluded place. The men would argue the 15 year old was not acting for them. Enticement of a Child is normally a class 4 felony, but it is a class 3 felony if the defendant has a previous conviction of Enticement of a Child, Sexual Assault on a Child or for conspiracy to commit or the attempted commission of either offense. It is also a class 3 felony if the Enticement of a Child resulted in bodily injury to the child. This sexual crime has strict sentencing parameters as well – both with probation and in prison cases.

Jefferson County Police – Why Never Speak to Them

If you've been accused, arrested or charged with Enticement of a Child in Jefferson or El Paso County, do not speak with police. They will act like your friend to get you to let your guard down, but they are only trying to collect evidence to use against you. Though you may think you can tell them the truth, what if they don't write down what you say? They will also twist your words and misquote you. It is always best to remain silent if confronted by Jefferson County Sheriff Deputies. You don't want to end up in the Jefferson County Jail or the Colorado Department of Corrections. Instead of speaking with them about an accusation of Enticement of a Child, tell them you need to speak with an Enticement of a Child Denver lawyer. There is too much at stake if you speak with police. Always involve an Enticement of a Child Denver lawyer early on and protect your future.
