Sexual Exploitation of a Child in Arapahoe County, Colorado, C.R.S. 18-6-403
Sexual Exploitation of a Child, C.R.S. 18-6-403, is a complex sexual offense and is charged under many different circumstances in Arapahoe County, Douglas County and everywhere else in Colorado. It is charged [pullquote align=”right” textalign=”right” width=”35%”]Once again, police and DAs charge the wrong crime.[/pullquote]whenever a person is in possession of child pornography or other sexually exploitative material, causes children to be engaged in the sexually exploitative material, or tries to share the sexually exploitative material in some way. Sexually exploitative material includes any photograph, motion picture, video, recording or broadcast of moving visual images, print, negative, slide, or other mechanically, electronically, chemically, or digitally reproduced visual material that depicts a child engaged in, participating in, observing, or being used for explicit sexual conduct. It would be tough for prosecutors to prove the man caused or enticed the child to be used for explicit sexual conduct (which includes sexual intercourse, erotic fondling, erotic nudity, masturbation, sadomasochism, or sexual excitement). A more appropriate charge would probably be Invasion of Privacy for Sexual Gratification, C.R.S. 18-3-405.6. Once again, trying to make a big splash, police and District Attorneys charge the wrong crime.
Invasion of Privacy for Sexual Gratification in Adams County, Colorado: Man Filmed Boy Without Consent
In Glendale, Federal Heights, Adams County and every other part of Colorado, Invasion of Privacy for Sexual Gratification is charged when a person observes another person's intimate parts without their consent and when they expect privacy, for the observer's sexual gratification. Since the man was allegedly trying to film the boy using the bathroom, it's more likely he would be charged with Invasion of Privacy for Sexual Gratification. Invasion of Privacy for Sexual Gratification is normally a class 1 misdemeanor extraordinary risk crime, but since the man was allegedly observing a child under the age of 15 and he was more than four years older than the child, it would be a class 6 felony charge. This is the more appropriate charge in this case.
