Difference Between Enticement of a Child and Internet Luring of a Child In Denver, Colorado


Enticement of a Child and Internet Luring of a Child in Denver, Colorado: What is the Difference?

Enticement of a Child and Internet Luring of a Child are very similar crimes, and if you are contacted by Police regarding either crime, it is important that you do not talk with them. Because of the seriousness of these charges, a conviction could mean years, if not life in prison, and Denver Police look for anything and everything that can be used against you in court. Both crimes involve the attempt to meet up with a child, but the intent of the meeting is what matters when distinguishing between the two charges. Enticement and Internet Luring are defined below:

Definition of Enticement of a Child in Arapahoe County

In Arapahoe County, the definition of Enticement of a Child states that a person can be charged if they invite, persuade, or attempts to invite or persuade "a child under the age of fifteen years to enter any vehicle, building, room, or secluded place with the intent to commit sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact upon said child."

Definition of Internet Luring of a Child in Douglas County

In Douglas County a person who knowingly communicates over a computer, online, over the phone, by text message or instant message with a person that they know, or believe to be "under fifteen years of age and, in that communication...describes explicit sexual conduct, and in connection with that description, makes a statement persuading or inviting the person to meet...for any purpose" will be charged with Internet Luring of a Child. It is important to note that the definition says "for any purpose."

Penalty for Enticement of a Child is Harsher than Internet Luring in Adams County

Internet Luring of a Child is class 5 felony in Adams County - you could spend 3 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections if convicted. However, if it is proved that you wanted to meet for the purpose of sexual contact, or sexual exploitation (sexual exploitation is the creation or control of child pornography), then you will be charged with class 4 felony. Not only will you spend time in prison (subject to indeterminate sentencing), but you will have to register as a sex offender and obey the harsh sex offender treatment rules of the Sex Offender Management Board.
