Internet Luring of a Child Attorney / Lawyer in Arapahoe County (C.R.S. 18-3-306)

Internet-Luring-Attorney.jpgThe district attorney in Arapahoe, Jefferson, and Denver County take crimes of Internet Luring of a Child (C.R.S. 18-3-306) very seriously. To understand the gravity of the situation one can be facing when charged with this sex crime, a person needs to grasp what the crime is and what the potential punishments could be.

Elements of the crime of Internet Luring of a Child

Let's say that you are in a chat room talking with people about random topics when a young girl asks to speak with you about a specific topic: A sexual topic. As the conversation unfolds, you learn that she is under the age of 15, she is talking to you about sexually explicit things, and then she asks to meet up with you to try out these things she described. This exchange would constitute Internet Luring of a Child in Adams, Douglas, and Gilpin County. The police charge people with violating this crime routinely in situations factually similar to the one described above. The next thing you need to know about this sex offense is what type of punishments could be placed upon you and your family if you are convicted of this crime.

Possible Punishments for a Conviction Under C.R.S. 18-3-306

Trying to meet up with a child for the purposes of sexual gratification is a class 4 felony. When the prosecution in El Paso, Broomfield, and Elbert County cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were specifically meeting with the young girl for a sexual act, they will charge you with the lesser class of felony, a class 5 felony. When the government files these charges against an individual and the person is charged with the higher class 4 felony, the punishment must include indeterminate sentencing if jail is imposed. Let's take a look at how indeterminate sentencing works in Colorado:

Indeterminate Sentencing (C.R.S. 18-1.3-1004)

Indeterminate Sentencing for people charged with Internet Luring of a Child is the way the State of Colorado and the police in Aurora, Lakewood, and Thornton bully a person into accepting a plea when they are not guilty. The law states that a person convicted of certain sex crimes is to be sentenced to a minimum time in prison and not released until the Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB) says they are able to be released.

If you are facing charges anywhere in Colorado for the crime of Internet Luring of a Child or are facing a potential Indeterminate Sentence for your case, be smart, remain silent, and contact 24/7 the experienced and helpful attorneys at O'Malley Law Office at 303-731-0719.
