Colorado Springs Sex Crime Lawyer

What are the penalties for a sex crime?

Under Colorado state law, a conviction for any one of most types of sex crimes is punishable in part by a requirement to register as a sex offender. If you have been accused and charged with a sexual offense, you could be facing the prospect of spending the rest of your life with a social stigma and legal label "Sex Offender" following you into every new job interview and application for housing.

Your neighbors would be able to find out about your status through a publicly searchable online database, and in certain jurisdictions the local law enforcement agency might even actively notify residents of your presence. This punishment is above and beyond a sentence including fines, time in prison and a lengthy probation.

Many sex crimes carry this requirement, including:

  • Unlawful Sexual Offense
  • Enticement of a Child
  • Internet Luring of a Child
  • Sexual Assault
  • Incest

The state sex offender registry is made available to the public through a website maintained by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Colorado Department of Public Safety, and the number of registrants statewide currently includes more than 8,750 records, including 60 in Parker, 448 in Pueblo, 1,147 in Colorado Springs and 1,486 in Denver. If you are required to register, you will have a profile including a personal photograph, your home address and details about the nature of your conviction, and the information will be available to neighbors, social contacts and potential employers.

If you are accused of rape or child abuse, it may be possible to clear your name by introducing evidence that you have been falsely accused or that you have been mistakenly identified as the perpetrator. In internet crime cases involving child pornography and similar offenses, the strategy often involves using digital forensics and constitutional privacy rights to defend against the allegations.
