Possession of Child Pornography Attorney in Denver | Anti-Sexual Violence Advocate Arrested for Sexual Exploitation of Children

Posted by Terry O'Malley | Jul 09, 2018 | 0 Comments

Possessing images and videos of child engaging in sexual acts is charged as Sexual Exploitation of Children in Denver, Golden, and Brighton. A student who had been a Noble Peace Prize nominee for his efforts to end sexual violence against children was recently arrested for Possession of Child Pornography. He was caught through an undercover operation, where he was texting with an undercover federal agent, sending the agent sexually explicit images of children and arranging to meet up with two young girls for sexual purposes. Along with the Possession of Child Porn, if this had occurred in Colorado, he would likely be facing charges for Child Prostitution and Distributing Child Pornography as well.

Douglas County Sexual Exploitation of Children Lawyer: Definition of Child Pornography Crimes

The Douglas and Arapahoe County, Colorado law definition of Sexual Exploitation of a Child, as it relates to possession or distribution – C.R.S. 18-6-403(3)(b.5) and (c) – is:

“(3) A person commits sexual exploitation of a child if, for any purpose, he or she knowingly:

(b.5) Possesses or controls any sexually exploitative material for any purpose; or

(c) Possesses with the intent to deal in, sell, or distribute, including but not limited to distributing through digital or electronic means, any sexually exploitative material;”

Downloading child pornography is enough to get the possession charge, but when those files are available to share where others can download the images you have, then a charge under the distribution subsection will likely be added.

Sentence for Possession or Distribution of Child Pornography in Jefferson and Adams County

Sexual Exploitation of Children can be charged as a class 3, class 4, or class 5 felony depending on the subsection a person is charged under. Possessing Images of Child Pornography is a class 5 felony, unless you possess more than 20 different images or videos, in which case it is a class 4 felony. A Sexual Exploitation of Children charge for distributing images is a class 3 felony. A charge for Sexual Exploitation of a Child is a sex offense no matter what subsection it is charged under and a conviction will require registration as a sex offender.
