Enticement of a Child – Easy to be Charged in Denver
Enticement of a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-305, allegations are brought to District Attorneys’ Offices from Douglas, to Custer County, and all over Colorado every day. It is charged when prosecutors believe they can convince a jury that the accused person tried to persuade a child, 14 years old or under, to enter a vehicle, building, room, or secluded place, with the intent to commit sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact. It is a very simple statute and fairly easy for a deputy District Attorney to win, so long as they have a child who claims it happened.
Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys Make Douglas County Prosecutors Prove Intent
Intent is a critical element in Enticement of a Child cases and it is easy to prove in Douglas County when a prosecutor is not put to the task. Deputy District Attorneys are aware that when they have a person in the defendant’s chair, most jurors will assume the defendant must have done something wrong. But an experienced criminal defense lawyer will not permit these assumptions to go unchallenged. Instead, he will make the government show how they know the defendant’s intentions.
Sex Crimes May be the Most Falsely Reported Crimes in Colorado
In today’s hyper aware society teens know what to say to get the attention they crave or how to get revenge on those they don’t like. While the Department of Human Services, Police agencies, and District Attorney offices claim that sex crimes are the most under reported crimes in Colorado, I believe they are the most falsely reported crimes as well. To make matters worse, in an effort to protect victims, Colorado law makers have passed legislation which protect another kind of criminal, false reporters.
False Reporters are a Protected Class in Adams County
I believe the intentions of law makers are good, but often in their zeal to punish wrong doers, another problem is created. When a person makes an allegation of a sex crime they are immediately assumed to be a victim. Long before charges are proven in court, the alleged victim is treated as if their version is fact. The so called victim is protected from having to discuss or reveal incriminating past behavior and they are provided with the attention false reporters seek. The deck is stacked and innocent people are being placed in the horrifying position of having to prove their innocence against Enticement of a Child charges in Adams County.
