Protection Against Incest Charges

Incest in Colorado is a class 4 felony. Incest is generally charged when a person has sexual contact of any kind with a relative. It is important to note that the term “relative” has many definitions and can be seen as a child, a stepchild or even a child by adoption. Sexual contact with any other relatives like uncles, nieces, nephews or aunts is also charged as incest.

Like all other F4 sex assaults in Colorado the penalties are all indeterminate penalties and usually include lifetime sex offender registration in Colorado, a ban from you seeing or being around your children, and successful completion of lengthy prison or probation terms that can include life sentences.

Why Am I Charged With Incest?

Incest charges are often the result of unhappy teens looking to find a way to get out of their stepfather’s or stepmother’s homes. Sometimes the juvenile has to stay with an uncle or an aunt while mom and dad sort through their financial or divorce issues and the juvenile is tired of hearing “you cannot smoke pot” or “you cannot go to the prom with that boy.” All of a sudden they are claiming that they are sexually assaulted and the district attorney charges the innocent family member. It is very important to note that the alleged victim does not have to be an actual juvenile or child. If they are over the age of 21, you can still be charged with incest in Colorado.

At Shazam Kianpour & Associates, P.C., we have successfully defended many charges of incest in Arapahoe County and Boulder County and many other counties in the metro area, including Douglas, Denver and Broomfield counties. We have years of experience as qualified sex-related crime defense lawyers, and we understand that just because the child says it happened does not make it true.

What Are The Consequences Of Aggravated Incest?

Aggravated incest in Colorado is considered a class 3 felony (F3) and carries with it even harsher penalties than class 4 Felony Incest. We have been successful in getting aggravated incest charges dismissed once the district attorney realized that the alleged “victim” could not even keep his or her story straight.

Class 3 Felony Sex Charges and Sentences in Denver

Class 3 felony aggravated incest is a significantly more serious charge than other forms of incest. It alleges that the “victim” was under the age of 21 when the sexual assault occurred. Most class 3 felony sex crimes in Colorado carry from 20 years to life on probation to sometimes life in prison. Most incest or aggravated incest charges are charged alongside sex assault on a child and the two seem to go hand-in-hand on most charging documents.
