Does A Prostitution Conviction Require Sex Offender Registration?

However, Patronizing a Prostituted Child, C.R.S. 18-7-406, Pimping and many other Prostitution related crimes are considered sex offenses that require sex offender registration. This necessitates sex offender supervision by a probation officer, which in many cases can be for an indeterminate period, as the state deems necessary, C.R.S. 18-1.3-1001.
