Child Contact Assessment in Douglas County - Sexual Assault on a Child Cases

child-contact-assessment-denver.jpgChild Contact Assessment in Douglas County

A Child Contact Assessment (formerly called a "Parental Risk Assessment"), is required before a Sexual Assault on a Child sex offender is permitted to have any contact with children, usually their own. The CCA involves assessing the offender's attachment style, empathy, abililty for family stability, their parenting involvement/skills, general stability, non-sexual criminal risk, mental/emotional health, arousal to/sexual interest in minor children, historical sexual behaviors, cognitive distortions, and responsibility and level of denial. It seems crazy to think that a stranger assesing all of these things has the power to keep you from your family, especially since it is usually assumed that Sex Offenders have an irreparable character flaw. This belief is taken to the extreme and often becomes an excuse to victimize families. Therapists and probation officers are quick to shift blame for their secondary victimization of an offender's children back to the offender.

Criminal Impersonation Attorney in Denver

Criminal Impersonation is charged when someone in Denver takes on the identity of another. Usually this is done for important purposes, like trying to avoid getting a traffic ticket or taking money from another by fraud. Someone with a suspended license might tell a police officer that they lost their ID, and then give the name of someone else. This crime comes to light when the real person named fails to show up in court. After being arrested for an FTA (Failure to Appear), the person comes up with the likely suspect and then the correct person is charged with an additional felony - Criminal Impersonation.
