Sexual Assault on a Child in Colorado

In Colorado, a person commits sexual assault on a child if they have any sexual contact with a child under the age of 15, when the individual is at least four years older than the child.

In most cases, sexual assault on a child is considered a class 4 felony, but is a class 3 felony if the following circumstances exist:

• If force or threats were used against the alleged victim

• If threats of retaliation against the alleged victim or their family are used

• If the sexual contact was part of a pattern of abuse

Whether you’re facing charges in Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Denver, Douglas, El Paso, Jefferson, or Weld County, each jurisdiction imposes restrictive requirements on the accused. You may be forced to move out of your house, be prevented from contacting any minors (including your own children), and may be unable to keep your job. To make matters worse, you may be forced to wear a GPS ankle monitor, submit to random drug and alcohol screens, and have routine check-ins with pre-trial officers— all while you’re still presumed innocent.
