Solicitation of a Minor Charges
Solicitation of a minor charges are usually filed when someone has allegedly conversed with a minor and, in doing so, has allegedly asked that minor to engage in some sexual act. While solicitation of a minor charges can be filed when a person allegedly had face-to-face (or in-person) interaction with a minor, they can also be filed when the soliciting has allegedly occurred via the Internet, text messages or other forms of technology.
As with other types of sex crimes charges, solicitation of a minor charges can come with some harsh penalties, and having a strong defense will be essential to favorably resolving these cases. At Peter Loyd Weber & Associates, our Broomfield and Boulder sex crimes defense attorneys are experienced at aggressively defending those accused against solicitation of a minor charges, and we will work relentlessly to help our clients obtain the best possible outcomes to these cases.
Solicitation of a Minor: The Charges and Potential Penalties
The nature of charges related to solicitation of a minor will depend on the facts of a case, as well as the accused person’s criminal record. However, here are just some of the things you should be aware of if you or someone you love has been charged with solicitation of a minor:
- Sexual or physical contact with the minor does not have to have occurred for you to be charged with this offense.
- You can be charged with solicitation of a minor even if the person who you were alleged soliciting was older than 18 years old (which may be the case, for instance, when police pose as minors online).
- A conviction of these charges can result in various penalties and impacts, possibly even jail time, court fines and mandatory registration as a Colorado sex offender.
What may be just as damaging as the court-ordered penalties in these cases are the other consequences people may face, such as the loss of a job, irreversible damage to their reputation and careers, loss of custody, etc.
