When a person pleads to or is found guilty of a sex offense like Sexual Assault or Unlawful Sexual Contact in Denver or Adams County, there are a number of different sentencing options. We often see non-aggravated cases result in a sentence that includes Sex Offender Intensive Supervised Probation or SOISP. Recently, a former CU student was found guilty of Sexual Assault for having sex with a woman too intoxicated to consent. He was sentenced to 2 years work release and 20 years to life on SOISP. The sentence received much criticism as many felt that he should have been sent to the Colorado Department of Corrections. I think there is a misconception that SOISP is getting off easy. This man will be supervised for at least 20 years, and any violation could send him to prison on an indeterminate sentence. SOISP is not like regular probation and it is definitely not an easy sentence.

Arapahoe County Sex Offender Intensive Supervised Probation: Terms and Conditions for Douglas County SOISP

When you are sentenced to SOISP for a sexual offense in Arapahoe or Douglas County, life as you currently know it will change drastically. Those on SOISP are no longer allowed to go wherever they want, or whenever they want. The places you can go are seriously limited and there are even restrictions on what times you can go there. You must submit a safety plan to be approved by your Community Supervision Team to get any new location approved. You will also have to call in to your probation officer every day and tell them what your schedule is for the day. They will check up to make sure you are where you said you would be. This type of supervision is not just a ‘check in once in a while and make sure you follow the law.' It is far more intensive than that.
