Contributing To The Delinquency Of A Minor, C.R.S. 18-6-701
The Lawyer’s Definition of contributing to the delinquency of a minor in Colorado is:
(1) Any person who induces, aids or encourages a child to violate any federal or state law, municipal or county ordinance, or court order commits contributing to the delinquency of a minor. For the purposes of this section, the term “child” means any person under the age of eighteen years.
(2) Contributing to the delinquency of a minor is a class 4 felony.
(3) When a person is convicted, pleads nolo contendere, or receives a deferred sentence for a violation of the provisions of this section and the court knows the person is a current or former employee of a school district in this state or holds a license or authorization pursuant to the provisions of article 60.5 of title 22, C.R.S., the court shall report such fact to the department of education.
This is the definition which courts and attorneys use in Denver County and Arapahoe County, Colorado, when people are charged with this felony.
