Yahoo Chat - Dangerous Hunting Ground for Internet Luring

Yahoo Chat - dangerous Hunting Ground for Internet Luring charges. Whether you are ten, twenty or sixty years old, Yahoo Chat is a dangerous place to be in Denver, Arapahoe County, Douglas County, Jefferson County, or Adams County. We have seen a large number of cases throughout the years where people are chatting in Yahoo Chat and police bait them into sex talk with a "fourteen" year old child, and they end up charged with a serious sex offense. I put this age in quotes because it is usually a police officer pretending to be a "fourteen" year old child.

Are Public Defenders Great Lawyers?

Are Public Defenders Great Lawyers for your criminal case in Douglas, Denver, Adams, Arapahoe, and Jefferson County? After twenty years of work with them, I am convinced they are great lawyers for any felony or misdemeanor case. Yet, they get a bad reputation because they are so busy.

Do You Need a Criminal Law Specialist?

Do you need a criminal law specialist lawyer for your Denver, Arapahoe, Jefferson, Adams or Douglas County criminal case? That depends on whether your case involves specialized rules like the Rules of Criminal Procedure, knowledge of criminal case law, and experience working with District Attorneys. Do you want a lawyer who is used to cross examining police officers or one who is used to cross examining little old ladies? This decision is like asking whether you should take your Acura car in to a Ford dealer, or your Ford in to an Acura dealer, for service. An attorney who works with the Civil Rules of Procedure and files personal injury cases has no idea whether arraignment triggers a deadline for a Bill of Particulars. In fact, they don't even know what a Bill of Particulars is.

Miranda Rights Required to be Read by Colorado Police

Miranda rights required to be read by Colorado police is a frequent evidence subject by callers to our office. It is a good question and tells me the caller is thinking. Whether in Denver, Arapahoe County, Jefferson County, Douglas County or Adams County, here is the scoop on this important U.S. Supreme Court case and related law: 1) if you are in custody AND 2) the police are interrogating you, the police must read you your "Miranda Rights", or what you say is not admissible against you.

Self Defense for Assault, Harassment and Menacing

Self defense for Assault, Harassment and Menacing charges in Denver, Arapahoe, Jefferson, Adams, and Douglas County is often overlooked or misunderstood in Colorado. Lawyers miss the value of this Affirmative Defense and miss a chance to win their case.  Criminal Defense Attorneys forget that their are many affirmative defenses like Self Defense which can greatly increase the burden of proof imposed upon the District Attorney.

Police Tactics to Get you to Talk

Police tactics to get you to talk in Jefferson County regarding a crime like Enticement of a Child or Sexual Exploitation of a Child are common sense. Remember the old saying that you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar? The first time out, you don't tell your blind date everything about you up front. You act upbeat and optimistic because you want him or her to like you. We even mislead people by our silence, in order to keep from hurting their feelings or to get them to open up.

DNA Evidence of the Innocent in Colorado

DNA evidence of the innocent in Colorado is now the law. Before a person is convicted, C.R.S. 16-23-103 now requires anyone charged with a felony - before any conviction, to give the government a sample of their DNA.  Of course, the sample will go into a huge database and can be searched by the government for profiling or to match prior cases.

Want a Cheap Colorado Lawyer?

Many seem to want a Cheap Colorado Lawyer.  They call me and their first question is how much we charge.  I ask them if they want a cheap lawyer, and they backpedal a bit, but make sure I know price is everything to them. Don't they care about what cheap lawyers will do for them?
