When Enticement of a Child Charges are Filed in Douglas County, Jurors are Ready to Convict
Enticement of a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-305, allegations are frequently brought to the Douglas County District Attorneys' Office. If prosecutors think they can convince a jury that a person tried to persuade a child, 14 years old or under, to enter a vehicle, building, room, or secluded place, with the intent to commit sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact, they will file charges. DAs don't need clear evidence of the crime. They just need a child claiming it happened, and they are plentiful. A jury is willing to convict on Enticment allegations and the sad news is that the reasonable doubt burden of proof, is not important.
