At-Risk Adults, At-Risk Adults with IDD, At-Risk Juvenile, At-Risk Elder and Caretaker Denver Lawyer


Jefferson County At-Risk Adults, At-Risk Adults with IDD, At-Risk Juvenile and At-Risk Elder Defense Lawyer

In Denver, Colorado, and across our state, the law has set up a special class status of persons labeled "At-Risk," who are less able to care for and protect themselves, compared to the general population. Within this class, comes higher penalties for crimes involving At-Risk Adults, At-Risk Adults with IDD, At-Risk Juveniles, and At-Risk Elders. The law's purpose is to reduce crimes against this population.  However, the effect seems minimal because offenders are not aware of the increased risk they run by harming an At-Risk person. Colorado At-Risk Law.

Crimes Involving at Risk Adults and At Risk Juveniles Are Too Broad

Laws in our state should be logical. We don't send someone to prison or jail based on emotion alone. Yet in Colorado, our legislature has passed such a broad law that common sense must have been abandoned in its passage. Seeking to please special interest groups, Colorado's lawmakers have once again embarrassed themselves. Our state's At Risk Adult / At Risk Juvenile laws, at C.R.S. 18-6.5-103, are the subject of this irresponsible lawmaking.
