Juvenile Sexual Assault on a Child in Colorado

Denver Juvenile Sexual Assault on a Child

Sexual assault on a child in Colorado by underage juveniles, C.R.S. 18-3-405, is much more serious than the childhood exploration of the opposite sex from the past. Why? Because the government wants to involve itself in every component of your life. District attorneys in Denver, Jefferson, Adams, Arapahoe, Weld, Larimer and Douglas counties are fearful that they may lose their job or be criticized if a child/juvenile accused of a sex offense like sexual exploitation of a child or sexual assault on a child is not prosecuted.

Common Basis for the Juvenile Sexual Assault Charge

Sexual assault on a child by an underage juvenile generally results from a young teen or preteen boy viewing pornography and attempting to duplicate what he has seen with a young boy or girl. This crime requires sexual contact between juveniles with greater than a four year age difference. In many cases, false allegations of sexual assault are brought with no evidence, as children crave attention or seek revenge and know the government's willingness to prosecute anything. It is critical that you see us prior to giving permission for your son to meet with police. We can explain the harmful consequences of meeting with police and discuss options for your son's protection from a sexual assault conviction, which could require him to register as a sex offender for life. Sex offender registration has many connected issues. A juvenile sexual offense on a criminal record is viewable by the public on the Internet and can have devastating consequences for your son's future.

Supervision of Juvenile Sexual Assault Offenders

In Colorado, sex crimes between children are governed by the strict standards of the Colorado Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB). This board will dictate where you son lives, when he must move out of the house if other children are present, safety plans at school and other outings, supervision and treatment. This program is standardized and does not allow for variances depending on the crime and needs of the victim and juvenile sex offender. In many cases we believe the government does far more harm by suddenly splitting up families, than the original offense caused.

Sexual assault on a child by a juvenile offender is a real crime with harmful consequences for victims. In other cases, false allegations of juvenile sex crimes harm juveniles as the government prosecutes without a thorough investigation. For these reasons, if contacted by police, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent and call us at 303-731-0719. Together, we can protect your future.
