Denver Promotion of Obscenity to a Minor Attorney | Teacher Shows Class Cartoon Porn 

Posted by Terry O'Malley | Mar 01, 2018 | 0 Comments

Showing a child any material that is considered obscene or depicts sex is charged as Promotion of Obscenity to a Minor in Denver, Aurora, and Castle Rock. A teacher would likely be facing these charges if he had committed what he is accused of in Colorado. According to reports, students reported that their teacher showed a video that was basically cartoon pornography during class. The cartoon was about safe sex, but the teacher wasn't teaching a sex ed class, nor did parents give permission for their children to view this type of video. If this had occurred in Denver, Adams or Jefferson County, Promotion of Obscenity to a Minor charges would probably have been filed.

Douglas County Promotion of Obscenity to a Minor Lawyer: Definition of Promotion of Obscenity in Arapahoe County 

In Douglas and Arapahoe County, Colorado, Promotion of Obscenity to a Minor – C.R.S. 18-7-102(2.5)(a) – is defined as: 

“(2.5) (a) A person commits promotion of obscenity to a minor if, knowing its content and character, such person: 

(I)  Promotes to a minor or possesses with intent to promote to a minor any obscene material; or 

(II)  Produces, presents, or directs an obscene performance involving a minor or participates in a portion thereof that is obscene or that contributes to its obscenity.”

Under Colorado law, ‘promote' means: 

“to manufacture, issue, sell, give, provide, lend, mail, deliver, transfer, transmit, publish, distribute, circulate, disseminate, present, exhibit, or advertise, or to offer or agree to do the same.” 

‘Obscene' means material or a performance that depicts or describes offensive representations or descriptions of ultimate sex acts, per Colorado law.  

So, when the teacher presented the cartoon, which depicted obscene material, his actions met the criteria of this crime.
