Incest & Aggravated Incest in Colorado

Incest and Aggravated Incest, C.R.S. 18-6-302 and 18-6-301

Incest charges in Denver, Arapahoe, Jefferson and other Colorado counties is a Colorado sex offense and should be handled with the greatest of care. These charges usually accompany sexual assault on a child and similar charges. The charges arise because someone has alleged sexual contact or penetration with a relative — usually a child or stepchild. Brother and sister sexual contact will also be classified as incest or aggravated incest. There are many details that determine whether unlawful sexual contact amounts to incest or aggravated incest, so contact our attorneys immediately for an evaluation of your specific risks with these two sexual offenses.

Incest and Aggravated Incest Are Serious Felony Crimes in Colorado

Incest and aggravated incest in Douglas, Adams or other Colorado counties are classified as either a Class 4 felony or a Class 3 felony. Fortunately, there is no mandatory prison required for these incest crimes. However, a very lengthy sentence to the Department of Corrections (Colorado indeterminate sentencing) is possible, given the "sex offense" classification of this crime. Additional penalties include probation or parole with Colorado Sex Offender Treatment, and Colorado Sex Offender Intensive Supervised Probation, also known as SOISP. These penalties involve strict supervision by the government and limitations on where defendants can live and work and who they can have contact with. Contact with children is strictly prohibited if a person is convicted of either incest or aggravated incest.
