Colorado Sex Offender Registration / Deregistration Attorney in Denver

C.R.S. 16-22-113 is the Law on Sex Offender Registration / Deregistration

Arapahoe, Denver, and Douglas County permit individuals to deregister from the sex offender registry after a specific time period has elapsed from the end of their case. The time calculation is based on the type of underlying conviction or adjudication that a person has. When someone has completed the entire sentence, the clock starts. Misdemeanors usually require the convicted person to register for 5 years after the completion of their sentence. The rules and time frame changes for felony conviction sex offender registration / deregistration. For a class 4, 5, and 6 felony, and some misdemeanor sexual crimes, 10 years of registration is required, while a conviction for class 1, 2, or 3 felony requires registration for 20 years.

Convictions from Other States are Treated Similarly

In Colorado, out-of-state sex offender registration / deregistration is very similar to an in-state convictions; with only a few notable differences. The primary difference is Colorado imposes a filing fee on individuals who try to deregister for an out-of-state conviction. Secondly, the courts in Boulder, El Paso, Larimer, and Clear Creek County will look at the conviction from the other state and compare the law to Colorado law. The time requirement for deregistration in the state of Colorado will be based upon the court's comparison of the two crimes, unless shown to be inaccurate.

Deferred Judgments for Sexual Crimes Require Less Registration

When a defendant receives a deferred judgment in Jefferson, Adams, and Broomfield County, the time requirement for registration is less. Every County in the state of Colorado allows a person who is guilty of a deferred judgment to petition to deregister after the completion of the sentence. For example, if you were sentenced to 2 years of probation, after you successfully complete the probation, you are eligible to deregister from the sex offender registry.

Juvenile Deregistration for Sex Offenses Differs from Adults

Juveniles in Parker, Lakewood, and Aurora have different rules on sex offender registration /deregistration.  They may petition to deregister once their sentence is successfully completed. The courts apply factors to examine whether they will allow deregistration. The factors provided in C.R.S. 16-22-113 center on whether the person is likely to commit another offense involving unlawful sexual behavior. They utilize information from (1) the probation or parole officer, (2) the treatment provider, (3) the district attorney, (4) information in the presentence report, and (5) the victim(s). After considering this information, the Court will then determine whether the youth may deregister.
