Sex Crimes in Denver, Colorado
Sex crimes can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies and a conviction can lead to a long prison sentence and registration as a sex offender. Some of the common sex crimes charges include sexual assault, unlawful sexual contact and sexual assault on a child.
Charges for sexual assault include rape – sexual penetration by force, as well as statutory rape (sexual intercourse with an individual under age 17) or sexual intrusion. Depending on the circumstances, an individual who commits sexual assault will be charged with a class 2 or class 3 felony.
Unlawful Sexual Contact
This involves knowingly touching someone’s intimate parts or causing another person to touch your intimate parts, without his or her consent or enticing a child to exposing his or her intimate parts.
