Juvenile Sex Offenses in Colorado

Read more about juvenile sex offenses in Denver.

Juvenile, or minor, sex crime charges like Internet Sexual Exploitation of a Child (CRS 18-6-403) or Sexual Assault on a Child (CRS 18-3-405) in Colorado, particularly in Denver, Adams, and Weld County, are very serious for all the minors involved. Many of the underage kids charged with sexual crimes are ignorant of the law or are giving in to youthful passions that seem to be accepted by today’s culture. The thought of a minor having a sex crime conviction does not even enter a child’s mind, and the thought of sex offender sentencing and having to register as a sex offender for the rest of their lives is even more unbelievable. The rehabilitation process for juvenile or minor sex offenders is very similar to that of adults and just as intense and difficult. The government sees all sex offenders from the same model in Arapahoe and Jefferson County. The age of the sex offender and the circumstances behind the sex offense do not matter.

The Consequences of a Juvenile Sex Offense Adjudication

The consequences of having to undergo Colorado Juvenile Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB) treatment, sex offender probation, and Colorado sex offender registration are harsh for an underage juvenile sex offender. The type of conviction or plea agreement your child ends up with will make a lifetime difference. Some convictions require a temporary registration while others are lengthy. Some convictions are permanent and some are temporary. The experienced Juvenile sex offense lawyers at our law firm can make the difference for your child’s future in Douglas and Larimer County.

Your Children Will be Labeled as a Sex Offender

The Colorado government will take away your child’s freedom and give them a “sex offender” label that will make society think that they are a monster, when in reality maybe the teen just wanted to have sex with his underage girlfriend because “everyone else was doing it.” Children and minors are now being punished for things in the legal system that in previous generations were not prosecuted for.  Touching someone inappropriately at school, which is Unlawful Sexual Contact (CRS 18-3-404), should not carry the same consequences as Internet Luring of a Child (CRS 18-3-306) or Enticement of a Child (CRS 18-3-305), but it can.

Distinguishing the punishment between adult sexually deviant behavior and a child’s exploration of sexual activity is important. But until then, you need an experienced attorney close by your child’s side to make sure that the rest of their life is not damaged. Exercise your child’s right to remain silent, and call the experienced criminal defense attorneys at the O’Malley Law Office at 303-830-0880, or submit the “Get Help Now” form.
