Local newspapers, Craigslist, backpage.com and other online communities are dependable advertising opportunities for law enforcement agencies enticing men and women willing to pay for sex. Sting operations are common in the Denver area especially driving down Colfax Avenue.
If you have been “stung” by a male or female undercover officer wired and posing as a decoy you are facing embarrassing criminal charges. If you have demonstrated an interest in engaging in furthering these sting operations aren’t considered entrapment.

Denver Colorado Attorney Philip M. Smith
A person’s criminal history is often the deciding factor for effective resolution of a municipal ordinance violation charge. As an experienced criminal defense attorney, I work to diminish prior offenses or call attention to a good record to ensure that my client receives the most favorable disposition possible.
I will work in your behalf to get the best resolution to your case by working to have the charges dismissed, obtain a Deferred Judgment or Diversion if possible. Upon successful competition of a deferred judgment or the Diversion program, your criminal case is eligible for Sealing. I can handle the sealing procedures for you at that time. Sealing removes the case from the public eye and you will never have to admit to the charge.
Impact of Furthering or Solicitation Charge
- Furthering is a municipal ordinance violation with a maximum of 1 year in jail and a $1000 fine.
