Sex crimes are some of the most serious of all criminal charges.
The mere accusation of a sex crime can be traumatic and emotional and can tarnish someone’s personal life, ruin a career and destroy standing within a community, including friends, family, neighbors or co-workers.
- Sex offenses in Colorado carry minimum statutory consequences that include:
- Colorado Sex offender crimes and registration requirements
- Sex Offender Intensive Supervision Probation (SOISP) as part of a probation sentence
- Sexually violent predator (SVP) assessment and findings.
Colorado courts also recognize “indeterminate sentencing” for all sex crimes. This means every sentence is a potential life sentence. A Sex Offender Management Board sets terms and conditions of release, requiring convicted sex offenders to participate in sex offender therapy. Failure to participate can mean no release.
Even upon release, convicted sex offenders generally face a compulsory lifetime sex offender registration, making it difficult to find housing, a job or blend into a neighborhood. Failure to register has become a federal crime.
The seriousness of these consequences requires the most serious defense possible.
