Indeterminate Sentencing for Sex Offenses in Colorado

How Indeterminate Sentencing Works in Colorado Sex Crimes Cases

For some sex crime convictions, indeterminate sentencing may be imposed, meaning there is no firm end date for the penalties. Instead, a parole board will determine when the penalties should come to an end.

When sex crimes charges carry indeterminate sentencing, it’s more critical than ever to present a strong defense. Without it, a conviction and indeterminate sentencing can leave you facing the maximum possible penalties as the upper limit of your sentence. In serious felony cases, that could span a lifetime.

What Sex Crimes Charges in Colorado Carry Indeterminate Sentences?

Typically, indeterminate sentences are reserved for the most serious sex crimes charges. Often, these are cases in which there is a concern about future repeat offenses. That’s why, in many cases, prison sentences that come with indeterminate sentencing also require some type of treatment.

The charges associated with indeterminate sentencing in Colorado include (and are not limited to):

  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual assault on a child
  • Felony unlawful sexual conduct
  • Aggravated sexual assault by a psychotherapist on a client
  • Patronizing a prostituted child
  • Internet luring or sexual exploitation of a child
  • Enticement of a child
