Sex Offender Indeterminate Sentencing in Douglas County and Arapahoe County, Colorado

Sex-Offender-Indeterminate-.jpgArapahoe County and Douglas County Indeterminate Sentencing | What is an Indeterminate Sentence in Colorado?

For many of the more severe Colorado sexual offenses, an Indeterminate Sentence is given to punish people more severely. "Indeterminate" is the opposite of "determinate", and means that it could go forever or for a lifetime. Lifetime sentencing involves a judge giving the convicted defendant a minimum sentence, but not a maximum upper limit. The Parole Board, and to some extent the Department of Corrections, get to decide when to release the person. In this type of sentence, the parole board has the final say when a person is released. At a minimum, the defendant must be kept in prison for the minimum amount of time which the judge gave them at sentencing.

Here is a list of crimes with the indeterminate sentence requirement:

· Sexual Assault on a Child

· Sexual Assault on a Child by One in a Position of Trust

· Felony Unlawful Sexual Contact

· Aggravated Sexual Assault on a Client by a Psychotherapist

· Enticement of a Child

· Incest

· Sexual Assault

· Aggravated Incest

· Internet Sexual Exploitation of a Child

· Patronizing a Prostituted Child

· Internet Luring of a Child with the intent to meet for the purposes of engaging in sexual exploitation or sexual contact
