What To Know About Internet Sex Crimes In Colorado
We have provided some information that you should know about online sexual offenses in our state. Below, you can read some of our clients’ frequently asked questions and our attorneys’ responses.
What is the sexual exploitation of a child?
The term “child pornography” is considered outdated, as it implies that the victim consented to participate in a sex act. Instead, the law now refers to this crime as the sexual exploitation of a child. It refers to the possession, manufacture or online distribution of explicit content involving a minor.
What does internet sexual exploitation of a child mean?
A similar offense is internet sexual exploitation of a child. This is when someone uses the internet to commit the sexual exploitation of a child – for instance, exchanging explicit photographs with a minor over social media.
What is entrapment?
Entrapment occurs when a law enforcement officer lures you into inadvertently committing a crime that you otherwise would not have committed. One common example is a police officer posing as a minor and flirting with someone in a chat room. Our sex crime defense lawyers often see well-intentioned people tricked into committing an incriminating act through unscrupulous police tactics, such as entrapment.
