Sexual Exploitation of a Child Charges - Strong Legal Defense

Possession of child pornography in Denver is called sexual exploitation. If the possession of child pornography is due to downloading or viewing child pornography from the Internet, or receiving an email on a computer, then the crime is called Internet sexual exploitation of a child (CRS 18-3-405.4). Both these types of child pornography cases in Denver and the other counties in Colorado carry very harsh penalties.

Sexual Exploitation of a Child Sentences

Some of the penalties of Sexual Exploitation of a Child in Colorado include Sex Offense Intensive Supervision Probation (SOISP), sex offender registration and anywhere from one to 24 years in prison depending on your exact sex crime. Obviously you would also not be able to use a computer or the Internet, would have to stay away from your own children (sometimes for years), and could not date anyone or marry unless your probation officer says it is okay to do so. If you are a trucker or drive for a living; if you are a teacher or work with children; if you work in a restaurant, bar or anywhere where alcohol is served; or computers are used, forget about it. You may lose your CDL and have to get a local job approved by your treatment team such as working in a warehouse or stocking grocery stores at midnight, since you will not be allowed to travel out of state or be around children. These are serious changes that can ruin your life, and you need serious representation by sex assault experts who know how to defend these complex sex cases in Douglas County.

Sexual exploitation of a child charges in Colorado are even more serious and are bumped up to a class 3 felony (F3) if you intentionally or accidentally distribute child pornography in Denver or Brighton. Sometimes it happens inadvertently when the file is on your computer and is retrieved or sent out by mistake to someone over the Internet. Many cases that attorney Shazam Kianpour has successfully defended involve someone having some child porn on their computer that was accidentally downloaded when it was secretly attached by a worm or virus or Trojan horse to another program that was being downloaded. Next thing you know, the innocent client had child porn on their computer and was charged with sexual exploitation of a child in Adams County or Weld County or Internet sexual exploitation of a child in Boulder County and they did not even know they possessed child porn.

How Did I Get Charged With Distribution of Child Pornography in Colorado?

Many of the clients we have defended were on shareware sites like FrostWire where people download videos, music and other things like photographs. The innocent client wanted to download some perfectly legal adult porn and some child porn files were mixed into the download through no fault of him or her. Later, when someone else like law enforcement searches for child porn on the Internet, because our client is a member of a "shareware site" like FrostWire, all the contents of their hard drive on their computer are visible to the law enforcement agent through the FrostWire Shareware file on their cache in their computer. The police downloaded the illegal child porn that our client unknowingly had on their computer and then go and arrest our client who had no idea any of this was happening. Now you are charged with both possession and distribution of child pornography in Highlands Ranch and you are innocent!
