Psychological Profile of a Sex Offender

Posted by Kyle B. Sawyer | Oct 16, 2012 | 0 Comments

A general psychological profile for criminals has been released for Denver, Jefferson, and Adams County, courtesy of the Westminster Police Department. People who have committed Sexual Assault (CRS 18-3-402), Internet Luring of a Child (CRS 18-3-306), or Incest (18-6-302) surely fit this profile and the public should be knowledgeable of what a sex offender looks like.

This specific profile was designed to fit the suspect in the kidnapping of Jessica Ridgeway, but police have used this formula before to make arrests for other crimes. Westminster police believe that “your boss, your friend or a family member” could be responsible for this little girl's disappearance. If that really is the case, then citizens across Larimer, Weld, and Douglas County should be rushing to the police with all the information they have on their bosses, friends, or family members.

Police continued by saying that residents of Westminster, Northlgenn, and Arvada should be aware of behavioral changes shown by their acquaintances. They should be sensitive to the fact that their mood changes or odd behavior could be a result of a crime they committed. Police are trying to use this as a scare tactic to cause the public to be paranoid. As a result, they may have plenty of innocent people brought to their attention by a public that is afraid to ever let their children out of their sight.

Police are telling the public to be aware of others who may have missed work suddenly after the incident. Apparently, now, no one may call in sick after a disaster for fear of being prosecuted. They are telling people to watch if any relatives or friends have missed scheduled appointments recently or have a large amount of empty time that they do not have an explanation for. Apparently no one may escape to get some alone time without causing suspicion of criminal activity.

If you have exhibited any of these “odd” behaviors and are worried you may be contacted by police for a crime, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and call the experienced criminal defense lawyers at the O'Malley Law Office at 303-830-0880. Together, we can protect your future.
