Enticement Of A Child Definition
Enticement of a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-305
The Lawyer’s Definition Of Enticement Of A Child In Colorado is:
(1) A person commits the crime of enticement of a child if he or she invites or persuades, or attempts to invite or persuade, a child under the age of 15 years to enter any vehicle, building, room or secluded place with the intent to commit sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact upon the said child. It is not necessary to a prosecution for an attempt under this subsection (1) that the child have perceived the defendant’s act of enticement.
(2) Enticement of a child is a class 4 felony. It is a class 3 felony if the defendant has a previous conviction for enticement of a child or sexual assault on a child or for conspiracy to commit or the attempted commission of either offense, or if the enticement of a child results in bodily injury to that child.
(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, Douglas County and across Colorado, when people are charged with this felony sexual offense.
