Sex Offenses: Dangerous Crimes in Arapahoe County

Clients charged with Denver sex offenses like Sexual Assault on a Child (C.R.S. 18-3-405), Internet Luring (C.R.S. 18-3-306), or Sexual Exploitation of a Child (C.R.S. 18-6-403), are often unaware of how different sex crimes are from other criminal offenses.  Knowing these differences can make a big difference in how you approach your charges in Denver, Colorado.

Sex Offenses: Dangerous Crimes in Arapahoe County 

First, sex offenses are viewed as dangerous offenses in Arapahoe County. They are seen this way because government cannot predict when the accused will reoffend. These offenders are seen as difficult to treat and difficult to predict. With drugs, you can treat someone for a chemical imbalance and see if he is using again by drug tests. You can't objectively manage a sex offender. These offenders are thought dangerous because treatment and change is difficult to guarantee. Finally, these crimes are dangerous because child victims are often involved. Children are seen as vulnerable, and sex crimes can impact them for years.

Reoffenders in Douglas County Make the Government Look Bad

Next, government officials are protective of their jobs in the Denver metro area and Douglas County. Government employees are concerned that if a sex offender under their supervision reoffends, they will be blamed. Since sex offenders are so unpredictable, government employees like probation officers and judges will impose the most strict conditions on offenders. This will let the government officials say they did everything they could do, if someone reoffends. Only when they are convinced you are not an ongoing threat, will the government back off of some of the restrictions they put in place.

The Strict Sex Offender Management Board in Jefferson County

Finally, sentences are harsh for sex offenders. The Colorado Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB) sets up mandatory offender treatment terms. These terms include where a sexual offender can live, where they can work, who they can be around (no children – not even your own), and what they can think. This is comprehensive and does not acknowledge the differences in sex crimes.
