Internet luring of a child is committed when an adult communicates over a computer or network (email, text message, online chat room, etc.) to a minor he or she knows or believes to be under 15. Depending on the nature of a suggested meeting, the charge can escalate to Internet luring with intent, which carries more severe penalties.
- When making a charge of Internet luring the prosecution will look at several variables, including:
- Method and nature of communication
- Age of the child
- Years separating age of the victim and the person contacting him or her
In these cases the prosecution must prove that the communication was made via electronic media. It must also be explicitly shown or indicated that the victim was under 15. Like with other Colorado sex crimes, an Internet luring charge carries with it significant penalties.
