Sex Crime Conviction in Colorado

If you're facing a sex crime conviction in Colorado, you need an experienced attorney to fight for you.

The penalties for sex offenses are ruthless. A sex crime conviction in Colorado has the possibility of ruining your life.

The justice system essentially believes that sex offenders can never be “cured.” Law enforcement officials have invented a system that involves a very long treatment process for the individual convicted which includes  containment in prison, jail, county corrections, or a combination of both. This system is monitored by the Colorado Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB), who believes that sex offenders are dangerous, and suffer from a “behavioral disorder.” This one-size-fits-all philosophy does nothing to rehabilitate true offenders, and causes unfair treatment for others who have committed a less serious crime.

Prison time is mandated in convictions of a felony sex offense involving children where the defendant has a previous sex conviction. Defendants are labeled high risk because of the nature of those sex crimes which often occur when the victim is a is a stranger to the defendant or where physical force, threats, or weapons are used in the assault. Also, if sex rehabilitation treatment is believed to be useless to the individual or if they have a long history of previous sex offenses, they must go to prison indefinitely through the Colorado indeterminate sentence laws.
