Sexual Assault and Rape Colorado State Law

Terms such as sexual abuse and assault have specific meanings under Colorado State Law. Let's go over the legal definition and the punishments for sex offenders.

Legal Definition

Sexual assault is when someone knowingly sexually penetrates or intrudes upon someone who does not consent, is unable to render consent, or is under the state's legal age of consent (age 17). Unlawful sexual contact is a separate crime in which a person touches a victim's intimate parts, or when the victim is coerced into touching the offender's intimate parts.

Legal Penalties
