Did you know that anyone in Colorado is eligible to petition the courts to have their criminal records sealed? If you have a criminal past in the state, you do not have to endure ongoing discrimination and other negative consequences. In fact, even those who never had to mount a criminal defense -- perhaps they were just arrested -- can benefit from the sealing process.
For many different types of sex crime charges in Colorado, a conviction means that you need to add your name to the sex offender registry, but this is not a hard and fast rule that applies to all offenses. It is very important for anyone who is facing charges of this type to know if a conviction will mean that he or she has to register.
