Is Every Picture of a Naked Kid Child Pornography in Douglas County?

After 25 years meeting with District Attorneys, I continue to be amazed that some don’t read and understand the law. Many in Douglas County don’t realize that nude or naked pictures of kids are not necessarily illegal Sexual Exploitation of a Child. If they were, you could never take a picture of a baby running around without their diaper on. You need a case evaluation by an experienced lawyer who represents men and women from Parker, Elbert County and Castle Rock.

What Naked / Nude Pictures of Kids are Pornography and Against the Law in Adams County, Colorado?

The answer is those where the child is engaged in Explicit Sexual Conduct. In simple terms, that means some type of erotic act. Even though this is the law, many District Attorneys in Adams still file charges for the basic possession of nude or naked pictures. We have fought these DAs on this issue and most finally figure it out.

Are There Defenses to Child Nudity or Sexual Exploitation Charges in Aurora and Arapahoe County?

Yes.  Prosecutors in Littleton and Aurora, Colroado, must prove every element of Sexual Exploitation of a Child in order to convict anyone. While we must still consider whether a jury will convict simply because they oppose pictures of kids without their clothes on, most will follow the law. We have even had judges dismiss charges because a DA has not proven all the elements of their case by half time in a jury trial. There are even constitutional defenses to nude images and pictures. Did you know that child nudity, without more, is protected under the U.S. Constitution?

Computer and Cell Phone Forensic Searches by Denver Police – Never Arrested Until the Results are in?

Denver Police will often use a search warrant and search a house, computers and tablets. They take over your house until they find and seize every piece of electronic evidence, including your cell phone. But, they don’t arrest you. They wait until a forensic search of your devices is complete. Why do they do this? They don’t have enough evidence to charge you – yet. Always keep quiet and never answer any questions for them about what might be on a device or who uses it. The police are not your friend and are only talking to you because they want to get enough evidence to arrest you. Don’t help them by talking.
