Commerce City man sentenced for sex crimes

Posted

A 28-year-old Commerce City man received a 24-year sentence in the Department of Corrections following a guilty plea to charges of sexual exploitation of a child.

Jose Luis Valdes also plead guilty to internet luring of a child, attempted first-degree assault and attempted sexual assault on a child. He entered the plea in August.

A press statement said Valdes “engaged in sexually explicit conversations over social media” with as many as 12 juvenile victims. The conversations included the exchange of sexually explicit pictures and videos. The statement also said Valdes shared a desire with one of the victims to adopt a child so Valdes could sexually assault the child.

"Mr. Valdes' actions were disgusting and horrifying," said District Attorney Brian Mason in the statement. "This man preyed on children and discussed bringing others into his home simply to fulfill his grotesque sexual desires. I commend the Commerce City/Brighton Sexual Assault Task Force and the members of my team in the District Attorney's Office for seeing this difficult case through to a just conclusion."
