Juvenile Sexual Assault on a Child

Learn more about Juvenile Sexual Assault on a Child charges in Denver and across Colorado.

Sexual Assault on a Child in Colorado by juveniles, C.R.S. 18-3-405, is a very serious offense compared to exploration between boys and girls from our childhoods. This is true because the government now wants to protect themselves from possible criticism if they don’t file a case and the juvenile happens to reoffend. District Attorneys in Jefferson, Adams County, Denver, Larimer, Weld, and Douglas County are also fearful that they may lose their job or be criticized if a child / juvenile accused of a sex offense like Sexual Exploitation of a Child or Sexual Assault on a Child is not prosecuted.

Basis for the Colorado Underage Juvenile Sexual Assault on a Child Charge

Sexual Assault on a Child by a juvenile who is less than eighteen years old usually occurs when a teen or preteen boy views pornography and attempts to imitate what he has seen with a child victim. This crime requires sexual contact between juveniles with greater than a four year age difference. In many cases, false allegations of sexual assault are alleged with no evidence, as children craving attention or seeking revenge know the government’s willingness to prosecute.

It is important that you talk with us prior to giving permission for your child to meet with law enforcement. We can detail the harmful consequences of a meeting with police and discuss many options for your child’s protection from a Sexual Assault conviction. A conviction for any sex based crime could require your child to register as a sex offender for life. Sex offender registration has many connected issues that are difficult to predict. A criminal record of a juvenile sexual offense is viewable by the public on the internet and can have a damaging  effect on your son’s future.

Supervision of Juvenile Sexual Assault Children

Throughout Colorado, sex crimes by children have supervision under the strict standards of the Colorado Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB). This board will dictate where you son lives, when he must leave  the house if other children are present, safety plans at school and other trips, supervision and treatment. This program is narrowly tailored and does not allow for variables depending on the specifics of the crime and needs of the victim and child sex offender in Denver. In many cases we find that the government does far more harm by abruptly splitting up families, than the original offense caused.

Sexual Assault on a Child by a juvenile is a serious crime with harmful consequences to victims. In other cases, false allegations of juvenile sex crimes harm juveniles as the government prosecutes without a complete investigation. Therefore, if you or your child is contacted by police, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and call us at 303-830-0880, or submit the “Get Help Now” form. Together, we can protect your future.
