Governor Hickenlooper is calling for a review of state sex offender laws.

The move comes after criticism from Republicans that the current penalties need to be updated.

One penalty that would be reviewed is the current penalty for adults convicted of certain sex crimes against children younger than 14.

Right now that carries a mandatory life sentence --with no possibility of parole for 25 years.

Democrats have resisted, saying Colorado's current law is adequate. Victims' rights groups and state prosecutors agree.
