Internet Sexual Exploitation of a Child - The Punishment Does not Fit the Crime

penalty.jpgParts of this felony sexual crime sound nearly identical to Indecent Exposure, C.R.S. 18-7-302, a class one misdemeanor. Under Indecent Exposure law, the knowing exposure of one's genitals to another (including to children), is prohibited. In the class four felony charge of Internet Sexual Exploitation of a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-405.4, one subsection criminalizes any invitation to a child to view the actor's intimate parts via a phone or computer network. Here, police will charge you with this felony if you send a picture of your intimate parts to a child under fifteen.

third-degree-assault.jpgThird Degree Assault is one of the most overcharged crimes in Colorado. The statute, found at C.R.S. 18-3-204, uses ambiguous terms that give the district attorneys in Douglas, Arapahoe, and Denver county great latitude to charge this crime.

We all like to think of judges as neutral parties - and some really are. More recently in Colorado, however, we are seeing many Deputy District Attorneys being appointed as judges. Somehow, judicial nominating commissions and the governor think DAs are more politically appealing to voters in Denver, Jefferson and Douglas County.

presumption-of-guilt.jpgRevenge seekers have learned that accusing someone of Sexual Assault, C.R.S. 18-3-402, is an easy way to get even, and as long as they stick to their story, embarrassed prosecutors seldom file false reporting charges against the false accuser.

robbed-us-kids.jpgWhen Colorado District Attorneys charge men and women with Sexual Assault on a Child based solely on the word of a child, they change the way we must operate around kids. We cannot afford to offer physical affection to children who are not our own - and must be very careful with even our own kids. Sexual Assault on a Child, Position of Trust, or Pattern, all can result in lifetime, or indeterminate prison sentences in Arapahoe and Jefferson County. Gone are the days when we can freely offer physical affection and affirmation to the kids who need it.  Any man who does, is not paying attention.
