The Tenth Circuit has determined that a Colorado conviction for giving false information to a police officer or city employee is not a crime involving moral turpitude.  The court noted that fraud is not an explicit element of the offense, nor is there an implicit element of fraudulent intent in the statute because the commission of the crime does not necessarily entail fraud.  There is no requirement that the false statement be material or be given with the intent to mislead the city official, to disrupt the official’s investigation, or to otherwise cause any harm or obtain any benefit.  In sum, "[f]or a false statement to violate DMC § 38-40, it need not involve fraud, cause harm to the government or anyone else, obtain a benefit for the speaker, or be given with the intent to achieve any of these ends."
