Sexting By Adults

Sexting between consenting adults is not against the law. However, when sexually explicit messages are sent or received from a minor, the adult can be facing serious legal consequences. This could result in charges of sexual exploitation of a child, which is a Class 6 felony. In addition, the adult could be facing other internet crimes, such as a luring charge, if the content of the messages is believed to be encouraging a meeting with the minor.

A conviction for sexting charges may result in:

  • Large fines

  • Jail or prison sentences

  • A requirement to register as a sex offender

If you are convicted of a more serious offense and required to register as a sex offender, every area of your life will be affected. This requirement will limit where you can live, may put your employment in jeopardy, and can ruin personal and professional reputations and relationships. It is important to fight the charges with the help of an experienced sexting lawyer in Denver.

Teens & Sexting

Colorado law has enacted a system to distinguish between consensual messages between teens and abusive sexually explicit messages, including images and video. There are three possible offenses that teens may face for sexting.

Sexting offenses for teens include:

  • Exchanging – Minors knowingly exchange images of themselves with other teens who are at least 14 and less than four years apart in age is an infraction that may result in a $50 fine and enrollment in an educational program.

  • Possession – Knowingly possessing an image of another person without consent is a petty offense that may result in a fine and up to six months in jail.

  • Posting – Knowingly distributing or publishing the image of a teen that is at least 14 and less than four years younger without permission is a Class 2 misdemeanor, which may result in pup to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

A sexting charge can be devastating for a teen’s future and many young people unknowingly put themselves at risk of criminal charges. If your child has been accused of a sexting crime, it is important to seek knowledgeable and aggressive legal representation.
