Educator Arrested in Arvada, Colorado - Sexual Assault on a Child

Sexual Assault on a Child charges are pending against an assistant principal at Arvada High School in Jefferson County Colorado.  He was arrested on charges of sexually assaulting a 15 year old female student. There allegedly had been a relationship between the young woman and the assistant principal for several months prior to his arrest. The assistant principal turned himself in to the Arvada Police Department according to the Denver Post.

The assistant principal was arrested for allegedly committing Colorado Sexual Assault- on a Child by One in a Position of Trust C.R.S. 18-3-405.3 (a class 4 felony) and Colorado Sexual Assault on a Child by a Person in a Position of Trust with a Pattern of Abuse C.R.S. 18-3-405.3 (a class-3 felony). In Denver, Jefferson County, Douglas County, Adams County, Arapahoe County, and all across Colorado, a charge of Sexual Assault on a Child carries a stiff penalty for the person that is convicted.

There are other consequences that can be associated with a Sexual Assault on a Child charge before there is ever a conviction. For instance, a person who is charged with sexual assault on a child is not allowed to have any contact with anyone under the age of 18, even if that person is a member of the defendant's family. The defendant may be forced to leave their own home if they have children under 18 living there. The person charged may also not be able to work if they are employed at a location that employs people under 18 or has customers that are under 18.

In the event that a Defendant is found guilty, the courts will likely use indeterminate sentencing. Indeterminate sentencing sets the minimum amount of time that a person will serve in jail but the end of the jail term is up to the Colorado Parole Board. The Colorado Parole Board is a political body that tends to severely punish convicted sexual offenders. The board has complete discretion in determining how long the convicted person will remain in prison; it could even be for a full life sentence.

Because of the severity of the prison sentence for someone who is charged with a crime like Sexual Assault on a Child by One in a Position of Trust, it is important to have an excellent criminal defense attorney here in Denver, Colorado.
