The State of Colorado / District Attorney’s Office will have to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, the following things for a person to be convicted of Enticement pursuant to Colorado Revised Statute 18-3-305:

Colorado Statutes


Article 3. Offenses Against the Person


Current through Chapter 2 of the 2012 Legislative Session

§ 18-3-305. Enticement of a child


A person commits the crime of enticement of a child if he or she invites or persuades, or attempts to invite or persuade, a child under the age of fifteen years to enter any vehicle, building, room, or secluded place with the intent to commit sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact upon said child. It is not necessary to a prosecution for attempt under this subsection (1) that the child have perceived the defendant's act of enticement.


Enticement of a child is a class 4 felony. It is a class 3 felony if the defendant has a previous conviction for enticement of a child or sexual assault on a child or for conspiracy to commit or the attempted commission of either offense, or if the enticement of a child results in bodily injury to that child.


When a person is convicted, pleads nolo contendere, or receives a deferred sentence for a violation of the provisions of this section and the court knows the person is a current or former employee of a school district in this state or holds a license or authorization pursuant to the provisions of article 60.5 of title 22, C.R.S., the court shall report such fact to the department of education.

Enticement of a child is a class 3 or 4 felony.  If convicted, a person will have to register as a sex offender (potentially for the rest of his natural life) and complete sex offender treatment. Indeterminate sentencing also allowed pursuant to 18-1.3-1004.
