Sexual assault includes all crimes involving inappropriate sexual touching to rape, sodomy, and other sex-related crimes.
Who Commits Sexual Assault?
The greatest risk for sexual assault comes from someone known to the victim. This is tru for both adults and children.
In Colorado, every city and county have lists of sex offenders living in the jurisdiction. Citizens can obtain these lists by contacting their local law enforcement agency.
Many offenders are not even included in the registry. Those sexual offenders that were convicted prior to 1991 and those who have committed a sexual crime, but have not yet been detected or convicted, will not show on any registry.
