Avoid The Sex Offender Registry When Charged With Enticement Of A Child
Enticement of a child in Colorado is a class 4 felony (F4). Colorado laws require registration as a sex offender if you are convicted of this charge. You will also be required to move out of your home where your children live. You will also be banned from using computers and the Internet. This is minor compared to the unbearable amounts of probation or prison you may be required to complete.
We are sex crimes lawyers in Denver who handle these types of cases frequently. We often see enticement of a child charges brought on cases where the police have also charged with Internet luring of a child. This pair of crimes often go hand-in-hand and can destroy a person’s life.

Entrapment Defense for Internet Sex Crimes
Entrapment: Often a good defense involves showing the district attorney, the judge or the jury that there was entrapment by the police. This is a scenario where the innocent person – you – was approached online by a police officer pretending to be a juvenile. The police officer initiates the conversation, intentionally leads the conversation to a sexual topic and then tries to convince you to meet with them. Our law firm has been successfully defending against enticement of a child and other sex-related crime charges using an entrapment defense.
So What Exactly Is Enticement of a Child (CRS 18-3-305)?
According to Colorado Revised Statutes Title 18, Criminal Code § 18-3-305, enticement of a child is when: a person invites or persuades a child under the age of 15 years to enter any vehicle, building, room or secluded place with the intent to commit sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact upon the said child.
