Children Required To Register As Sex Offenders
A girl who committed incest when she was 11 and a boy who tried to hug a girl on a playground when he was 13 sued the governor of Colorado, claiming that children who commit offenses should not have to register as sex offenders for life.
None of them have committed or have been accused of committing a sex crime since they were discharged from supervision, but all have struggled to keep jobs and housing because they are listed on the Colorado Bureau of Investigation’s public database of registered sex offenders.
The boy was 13 when a classmate at his elementary school accused him of trying to hug her multiple times on the playground.
She was 11 when she committed aggravated incest by having oral sex with her cousin, also 11.
