Public Indecency Charges Must Be Taken Seriously
Even though public indecency in Denver starts out as a petty offense that carries with it a seemingly small amount of jail (up to six months), the stigma and embarrassment that comes with standing in court and having people snicker at you while the charges are read out loud by a judge will be horrible memories that last a lifetime.
So do you want to be standing there in court alone or with a new lawyer, or would you rather be under the protection of some of the best sex assault lawyers in Colorado? Gone are the days where a couple could sit on a park bench and grope each other. No longer can you be standing in the corner of a bar or nightclub and “get it on” with your girlfriend. If anybody sees or believes they see any lewd or sexual act, whether they are right or wrong, the police are being called. And as soon as the police get there, chances are you will be charged with this petty sex-related criminal offense. In fact, the legislature has made it such that if you are charged and convicted with public indecency in Denver County, Arapahoe County, Jefferson County or any other county in Colorado more than once, then it turns into a misdemeanor sex crime (M1) and becomes a full-fledged sex offense.
What Is the Sentence for Public Indecency in Colorado? (CRS 18-7-301)
If you are facing your second charge and already have a conviction of this crime on your record, then you will be treated as a sex offender. If convicted, you will be required to register as a sex offender, you will have to serve up to two years in county jail. If you are lucky, you will receive a probation sentence (that may still include some jail) and will be forced to enter sex offender probation treatment as outlined by the Colorado Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB).
