Juveniles accused of committing sexual offenses in Colorado face harsh penalties that are similar to those faced by adults. Colorado's standardized treatment program for sex offenders applies to juveniles who commit any crime that involves a sex offense. The Colorado sex offender registration act also applies to juvenile offenders. Finally, juveniles convicted of sex crimes can face enhanced sentencing penalties as violent or aggravated juvenile offenders.

How Can Juveniles Defend Against False Sex Crime Allegations?
Many juveniles facing sex crime charges did not intend to commit a crime. Alcohol may have led a juvenile to believe he or she was committing a consensual act. There may have been an honest misunderstanding or consent that was revoked after the act. In some cases, juvenile defendants are the victims of false sex crime allegations.
Yet, how can you prove that you face false or wrongful allegations when the system is set up to favor the other party?
At Jurdem, LLC, we will investigate your case and uncover any evidence and witness testimony that are available and necessary to defend against your charges. We have a record of securing strong outcomes in sex offense cases, including acquittals and plea deals that keep clients off the sex offender registry.
