Charged With A Crime? It Doesn’t Mean You’re Guilty.

Prostitution Defense Attorney in Denver

Greeley police arrested and charged a mother and daughter with prostitution after allegations that they were working as prostitutes out of their home in Weld County, Colorado. Following an undercover investigation, police charged the 25-year-old daughter with promoting sexual immorality (C.R.S. 18-7-207), keeping a place of prostitution (C.R.S. 18-7-204), and charged her mother with Prostitution (C.R.S. 18-7-201). Both mother and daughter were accused of child abuse (C.R.S. 18-6-401), because there was a child in the living room when the Greeley Police arrived at the apartment. I can’t imagine how that constitutes child abuse.

Jefferson County Soliciting for Prostitution Lawyer

Prostitution and Soliciting for Prostitution (C.R.S. 18-7-202) are considered by many to be victimless crimes when the parties to the sex act are consenting adults. However, the Colorado state government doesn’t see the distinction between this crime and others. Are taxpayer dollars being wasted prosecuting these crimes in Denver, Adams, Arapahoe, and Boulder County? Like the undercover operation in this case, police departments in Aurora, Brighton, Westminster, and Fort Collins are often using their police officers to go undercover during sting operations and pretend to solicit or pose as prostitutes. Surely there are more serious crimes to invest limited police resources.

Douglas County Sentencing for Prostitution Charges

While prostitution or solicitation may not carry the severest of criminal penalties, for many people the breach of their sexual privacy and the social stigma associated with this kind of sexually related conviction can be devastating.

Do not allow the Colorado government to use its power against you to trick and bully you into a prostitution conviction. If you have been charged with prostitution or any other sexually related offense in Larimer, Douglas, or Jefferson County, you need a fierce advocate to stand with you against these accusations. Even victimless sex offenses carry the possibility of serious penalties and life-changing requirements. If you are facing charges of any of these crimes, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and call the O’Malley Law Office at 303-791-0719. Together, we can protect your future.
