Boob Scoops & Butt Grabs: Unlawful Sexual Contact Charges by Juveniles

juvenile-sex-cases.jpgUnlawful Sexual Contact is fast becoming one of the most charged sexual offenses in the juvenile court system, especially in Douglas, Jefferson and Arapahoe county. C.R.S. 18-3-404 criminalizes subjecting someone to sexual contact when they do not consent. Sexual contact means the touching of the intimate parts of another (or the clothing covering the intimate parts of another). In the juvenile system, these cases arise from "boob scoops" and "butt grabs" as children grow into puberty, and typically occur at the middle school level.

Consequences of a Juvenile Sex Based Plea

I think what is most concerning for parents is the fact that these contacts have occurred since the beginning of time as kids go through adolescence, but now instead of being able to discipline this conduct at home, it has become subject to ever increasing criminal penalties which have severe repercussions for our children. Consequences include sex offender registration, offense specific therapy and a dark blemish on kids' records.

How a Full Time Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Make a Difference

Of all juvenile crimes, I think it is imperative to consult with an attorney if your child has been charged with a sexual offense. The days of thinking that juvenile charges are not as significant as adult charges are long gone. While it is unlikely that your child will face "jail time," it's the other consequences that are most concerning. An attorney can help you prevent long term damage to your child's record and help you navigate through the justice system. As a juvenile defense attorney, one of my primary functions is to empower families to understand how the criminal process works and help you reach the best possible outcome for your child. In many cases, I am able to avoid having my clients register as a sex offender or having to complete extended periods of therapy, even in cases where my clients are guilty of the conduct charged. Unlike attorneys who do not practice criminal law full time, I am aware of the broad consequences which often accompany these charges.
