Pandering Lawyer in Denver

pandering-lawyer-omalley-and-sawyer-llc.jpegPandering occurs in Denver when a person accepts money to arrange for someone to hire a prostitute. While some individuals believe this to be pimping, that is another offense in Colorado. Usually, Pandering is a misdemeanor offense. However, if threats or intimidation occur or the prostitute is under the age of 18, Pandering becomes a felony crime. As with all prostitution-related offenses, hiring an expert criminal defense attorney is a necessity. Consulting an experienced pandering lawyer can make all the difference in your unique case.

Pandering in Denver

C.R.S. 18-7-203 and Denver Code of Ordinances Sec. 38-158 outline the behavior of Pandering in Colorado. A person commits Pandering in Denver when they:

  • for money or other thing of value,
  • induce someone by menacing or intimidation to commit prostitution,
  • knowingly arrange or offer to arrange a situation in which a person might practice prostitution

This can include situations where someone offers or attempts to locate a prostitute for another person. In addition, something as simple as providing directions to a place of prostitution can result in a Pandering charge. The closely related crime of Pimping occurs when a person makes their living off of money made by someone working as a prostitute. It is possible to be charged with both Pandering and Pimping in Denver.

Sentencing for Pandering in Denver

Whenever someone arranges for a situation where prostitution is practiced, a class 3 misdemeanor can result. Potential punishments may include up to 180 days in county jail and a fine of up to $750. The crime amplifies with the presence of menacing or intimidation. These class 5 felony consequences can include 1 - 3 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections and fines of $1,000 - $100,000. If the prostitute in a Pandering crime is a minor under the age of 18, more severe felony ramifications can result. Several years in prison, expensive fines, and sex offender registration are some of the heavy consequences of conviction.
