Colorado Sexual Exploitation Law 18- 6-403 Vs - Federal Prosecution Of Child Pornography

 By H. Michael Steinberg Colorado Sex Crimes Criminal Defense Lawyer

In a case that quickly establishes the stark difference of Federal penalties for child pornography – call Sexual Exploitation Of A Child In Colorado – a Colorado Springs man was sentenced to 57 months – or almost 5 years for the possession of over 100 child pornography videos over several years. That entire sentence will be served less about 15 % and it will be followed by 10 years of supervised release which is served as a “tail” or at the end of his prison sentence.

The Federal “Connection”

Investigated by law enforcement that are a part of the Colorado Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force – postal inspectors found that the Colorado Springs man over $4,000 videos over a three year period.

If the case had been prosecuted at the Colorado state level – the charge would have been Sexual Exploitation of a Child – 18-6-403. In Colorado, these cases can be plea bargained, (assuming of course, a strong case for the DA and the case would be lost at trial and a plea bargain was therefore necessary.) Rarely, would jail, let alone a 5 year prison sentence with a 10 year “tail” of supervised release be required.
