Getting arrested for DUI does not mean you will be convicted. Police misconduct, defective breathalyzers and crime lab mistakes may be enough to get your charges lessened or dismissed. Visit our page on Colorado DUI Laws to learn more.
Section 18-7-403.5 of the Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.) provides:
Any person who intentionally gives, transports, provides, or makes available, or who offers to give, transport, provide, or make available, to another person a child for the purpose of prostitution of the child commits procurement of a child, which is a class 3 felony.
Procurement of a child for prostitution is not only a Colorado class 3 felony — it is a crime for which the judge must sentence you to prison.
Penalties for procurement can include:
Additional consequences of a conviction for procurement of a child include:
Procurement of a child is often charged in connection with violent crimes, organized crime, or other sex crimes. Common code sections charged along with procurement include, among others:
A key element of the crime of child procurement is intentionally giving, transporting or offering the child for prostitution. If you didn’t intentionally make or offer to make the child available, or you didn’t know what the child would be used for, you have not violated 18-7-403.5 C.R.S.
Other common defenses include:
Children aren’t the only victims of people seeking to exploit them. Sometimes parents and other guardians get taken in by false promises.
Maybe you thought you were getting your child a legitimate part-time job. Perhaps you were sending your child off to what you thought was an honest day camp. Maybe you just trusted the wrong person.

You may have to disclose criminal convictions to an employer in Colorado. Starting in August, 2019, the law on this topic is changing drastically. Colorado passed a “ban-the-box” law that forbids employers from asking about prior convictions. However, the law only applies to job applications, not subsequent interviews. It also has numerous other exceptions. As ...
There are several tests that measure the amount of marijuana in someone’s system. However, they are unreliable for cases of driving under the influence of drugs (DUID), largely because there is no “legal limit” for marijuana. Without a test that is similar to a breathalyzer for drunk driving, police still have to use faulty drug ...
