In Colorado, being charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor can have outcomes that will affect you for the rest of your life.

What is the Statute?
Under C.R.S. 18-6-701, contributing to the delinquency of a minor includes:
(1) Any person who induces, aids, or encourages a child to violate any federal or state law, municipal or county ordinance, or court order commits contributing to the delinquency of a minor. For the purposes of this section, the term “child” means any person under the age of eighteen years.

According to C.R.S. 18-6-701, contributing to the delinquency of a minor is a class 4 felony. A class 4 felony is punishable by two to four years imprisonment plus one year of parole and any additional fines that the Court sees as appropriate.
Additionally under C.R.S. 18-6-701, 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.
