Sexual-Exploitation.jpgSexual Exploitation of a Child - The Deck is Stacked Against You

Sexual Exploitation of a Child, C.R.S. 18-6-403, is a crime that has put many people behind bars who, in my opinion, should not be there. Why do I feel that way? It's because in their zeal to appease the public and appear tough on crime, prosecutors, politicians, and judges are stacking the deck against the accused. They revise laws, bring charges without sufficient evidence, and bend rules in favor of the prosecution. We are told it is up to the prosecution to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Colorado Sexual Exploitation of a Child - Needs Updating

Sexual Exploitation of a Child and Peer to Peer Networks

What are Peer to Peer File Sharing Programs?

Peer to Peer, or P2P, file sharing sites such as Shareaza, BitTorrent, Ares, BearShare, Gnutella, Kazaa, Limewire, and eMule, are generally used for the transfer of files containing movies, music, videos and still photographs. Modern day systems across the world can operate without a central server, reducing their vulnerability to network shut down by a central server. With these programs, users create index files of content they wish to share with others. Users in Denver, Douglas County and Arapahoe County are able to search across the indexes of thousands of computers at once to locate desirable content.

These definitions are extremely important, and yet prosecutors will charge people with this crime even when the definition does not fit nicely.
