Conditions Of Probation For Sex Crimes

Colorado can impose a number of terms on someone convicted of a sex crime, including:

  • Sex-offense-specific evaluation – You must undergo a sex-offense-specific evaluation that considers the type of treatment available, your level of risk, specific factors that might need to be addressed in treatment, and procedures required to monitor you to protect victims or potential victims.  The results of this evaluation are shared with the court and considered when determining probation terms. 
  • Treatment – The Sex Offender Management Board establishes guidelines that approved treatment providers must follow to assess, evaluate, treat, and monitor individuals who have been convicted of a sex offense. The goal of this treatment is to rehabilitate the convicted individual and prevent future crimes. Treatment may include group treatment, twice-annual polygraph testing, an after-care plan, monitoring, and more. 
  • Sex offender registration – Most people convicted of sex crimes in Colorado are required to register as a sex offender. Registration is for a minimum of 10 years for a class 4 felony and a minimum of 20 years for a class 2 or 3 felony. Registration may be required every three months for certain offenders.
  • Designation as a sexually violent predator – The court can designate you a sexually violent offender if you meet certain criteria. This designation increases your perceived risk when determining probation terms and sentencing. It also triggers special registration requirements on the sex offender registry and community notification. 
  • Sex offender intensive supervision conditions – Other terms of probation can be imposed on you pursuant to C.R.S. 18-1.3-1007, including electronic monitoring, genetic marker testing, being barred from contact with the victim and/or any children, no dating or marriage of anyone with minor children, no possession of pornography, substance abuse treatment, unannounced visits from law enforcement and probation officers, and curfew. 

Probation will generally last for 10 years for class 4 felonies or 20 years if you are convicted of a class 2 or 3 felony. 

Failure to follow any of these rules, including attending court-ordered treatment can be considered a violation of your probation and subject you to significant penalties.
