Sexual Assault Charges Involving Kids Under 18

Criminal Sexual Assault cases involving kids as victims present many special concerns to criminal defense lawyers. In particular, we are faced with the task of countering two major preconceptions: 1) why would a child allege something involving sex if it were not true, and, 2) where would a child get knowledge of sexual contact if not from actual experience?

Coloado Record Sealing and Expungement Matter

In our increasingly competitive job and housing market, Record Sealing and Expungement matter more than ever.  Juvenile case sealing is characterized as expungement, and adult records are known as sealed.  Surprisingly, this process is becoming easier in Colorado.  In a remarkable development, smaller convictions have been made easier to remove from your criminal history.

The Essentials of Colorado Forgery, C.R.S. 18-5-102

forgery-essentials.jpgGenerally, Forgery is the crime of making, copying, or using a using a counterfeit document with the intent to deceive people. In Summit County, Eagle County and Denver County, this crime is classified as either first degree or second degree forgery. First degree is more serious and is a class 5 felony. Second degree is a class 1 misdemeanor. The distinction between first and second degree forgery turn on whether the counterfeit document is classified as an official document. Official documents are things such as money, stocks, wills, deeds, public records, or contracts and falsifying these official documents is the more serious felony offense. However, second degree involves falsification of papers that are not categorized as official documents. In addition to this crime, the law also allows for other related charges to be filed, such as possession of a forged instrument, or obtaining a signature by deception.

Lawyer help: Sexual Exploitation of a Child, C.R.S. 18-6-403

Sexual Exploitation of a Child, often referred to as "child porn" or "kiddie porn", is a serious charge that can devastate a person's life. Charges of this type are filed when a person possesses nude images of children, makes pictures of children, helps or aides a child to be involved with the making of pornography, or distributes child porn. The District Attorneys in Denver, Arapahoe, or Douglas County will take these charges seriously and seek jail or prison for a person charged with violating C.R.S. 18-6-403.

Enticement of a Child - Relative to Internet Luring of a Child

In Denver County and Arapahoe County, police solicit Enticement of a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-305, charges after posing in chat rooms like Yahoo's Romance Room. They know that libidos are already high and it is a short trip to get someone to meet the elements of this crime: 1) invite or persuade, 2) a child under fifteen (15), 3) to enter any vehicle, building, room or secluded place, 4) with the intent to commit sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact upon such child.

Colorado Internet Luring of a Child - Dangerous Surfing

Whether you are on a web chat, instant message, a phone call, or texting, one thing is for sure: talking to children under the age of 15 (14, 13, 12, etc.), is dangerous business. Why? Police all over the U.S. have applied for federal grants to "protect children." Once they get their money, officers must show arrest statistics. So, Internet Luring of a Child predators in police blue uniforms begin the hunt for you. Posing as children hot for sex, police engage in explicit sexual conversations. You can tell who they are if you pay close attention, because in order to fulfill statutory requirements, they must tell you they (the "child" they portray) are under fifteen years old.

Sexual Assault Charges are the Rage!

Sexual Assault charges are the rage in Denver County and across Colorado. Police are quick to charge allegations and District Attorneys eagerly accept and file them. I can't think of any charge which requires less evidence and has more serious consequences. This is true for two reasons:

Probation Officers Have Virtually Unlimited Power

It should not be this way, but I am reminded daily of the virtually limitless power possessed by probation officers in Denver County, Arapahoe County and Douglas County. These people have little education, no legal training, and are not always the smartest people. But, they are government employees and courts give them tremendous discretion and power. Here are the two main reasons this done?
