Sex Offenses Like Promoting Sexual Immorality

In Colorado, it is still a crime for a person to furnish a facility to a couple for the purposes of fornication when they are not married. Promoting Sexual Immorality, C.R.S. § 18-7-208, is a class 2 misdemeanor sex offense. In general, the law has been construed to mean renting a room to a couple committing adultery. It raises questions of whether the government should be involved in making consensual sex offenses laws.

Are You Broken? Alcohol Abuse and Other Brokenness

Criminal charges and court cases occur every day in Colorado and involve good people.  If you are charged with a crime like Disorderly Conduct, C.R.S. 18-9-106 or Assault and looking at a plea agreement, a good criminal defense lawyer will try and indentify something about you that is broken.  Why? Because judges and deputy district attorneys from Larimer County to Pueblo County want to find something about you (like alcohol abuse) which is broken so they can say they fixed you to prevent a crime from occurring again.

Private Investigators in Criminal Cases - Worth the Money?

In your criminal case in Jefferson, Arapahoe and Douglas County, locating and interviewing defense witnesses is essential to detail what happened and whether government witnesses are telling the truth. When money is tight, you might be asking whether you should invest in a private investigator or save the money.

Sex Offender Registration / DeRegistration Out of State Conviction

If you have been convicted of a sexually based crime outside of the state of Colorado, but are now required to Register as a Sex Offender with such Colorado agencies as the Castle Rock, Thornton, or Westminster Police, the process of Sex Offender Registration / Deregistration can be quite complicated. First you must determine whether you are even statutorily eligible to de-register and then you must petition the court to order your name removed from the registry. You can't automatically stop registering.

Hit and Run Denver Attorney Help

Under C.R.S. 42-4-1601, the traffic offense of Hit and Run (Leaving the Scene of an Accident) in Denver, Arapahoe, and Douglas County requires the help of an attorney to fight the injustice of our courts. This traffic offense can occur through a variety of settings and individual situations. Sometimes people hit a parked car, other times they panic after being in a traffic collision. When someone is accused of Hit and Run, it is vitally important to speak with a criminal defense lawyer in Denver right away.

DUI / DWAI + Hit and Run, as Aurora Driver Hits Pole: C.R.S. 42-4-1301

An Aurora man has been charged with Hit and Run (C.R.S. 42-4-1601), Driving Under the Influence (C.R.S. 42-4-1301), and Careless Driving (C.R.S. 42-4-1402) after allegedly hitting an Xcel Energy power line and leaving the scene of the accident. The man was seriously injured and was in the hospital when contacted by the Aurora Police. No other driver was involved or injured in the accident.

Jefferson County Customer Makes Threats: Menacing, C.R.S. 18-3-206

A Jefferson County Sheriff's deputy spoke with the manager of Verizon Wireless in Littleton who accused a customer of coming into the store, complaining about his device not working properly, calling employees several names and threatening to get his gun and blow the manager's knee caps off. It is unclear at this time whether police have decided to charge this man with any crimes. However, this customer could likely be charged with Menacing, C.R.S. 18-3-306, under Colorado law.

Colorado Campus Sex Offenses & Crimes Prevention Act Lawyer

Our law firm is frequently amazed at how our society has demonized someone convicted of sex offenses. From a drunk man pinching a woman's butt in a bar to a college student streaking across campus, Colorado law makes it nearly impossible for a person to live following a "sexual" offense. Rarely is there any distinction between the truly dangerous from the thoughtless mistake. Now, colleges are in on the continuing punishment thanks to our federal government.

Driving Under the Influence Punishment Rules - Denver DUI Lawyer

Driving Under the Influence, or DUI, defined at C.R.S. 42-4-1301, is a serious driving and criminal offense in Arapahoe, Boulder, and Denver County. Since there are many complicated rules surrounding DUIs, a criminal defense lawyer can make the difference.

Temporary & Permanent Protection / Restraining Orders in Denver

Temporary and Permanent Protection / Restraining Orders under C.R.S. 13-14-102 in Denver, Douglas, and Arapahoe County are a firmly established part of the law. They require the detailed attention and understanding of a lawyer who can help you in the fight. Many people unwisely try to represent themselves in these cases and end up with a permanent restraining order which prevents gun or firearm possession. It is best to get an experienced lawyer to help you for several reasons.

Sexual Assault on a Child, Child Contact Assessment (CCA)

A Child Contact Assessment (formerly called a "Parental Risk Assessment"), is required before a Sexual Assault on a Child sex offender is permitted to have any contact with children, usually their own. It does not matter if the Sex Offender lives in Arapahoe, Douglas or Denver County, the rules are the same throughout Colorado. The Colorado Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB) changed the process for this procedure and the rules are published on the SOMB website. The authority given to the SOMB to make rules for sex offenders in Colorado is found in C.R.S. 16-11.7-103. Along with this authority comes a philosophy toward Sex Offenders which assumes Sex Offenders have an irreparable character flaw. This philosophy is taken to the extreme and often becomes an excuse to victimize families. Therapists and probation officers in Adams or Arapahoe County are quick to shift blame for their secondary victimization of an offender's children back to the offender.

Forgery Attorney in Denver, 18-5-102

Forgery, under Colorado law (C.R.S. 18-5-102), is a crime with complex elements which requires the skills of an attorney to help you navigate common pitfalls authored by the government. While sometimes a person doesn't have the intention to steal or obtain money through fraudulent means, a Forgery crime may take place through signing a check, a payment sheet, or any other instrument that is used to receive money. Essentially, if someone signs most any document in an attempt to defraud someone, that person can be charged with this crime which is a close cousin to Fraud.

Assault on a Peace Officer in Colorado

Recently in my practice, I have noticed a rise in the number of filings of assault against a peace officer charges in Denver, Jefferson and Larimer County for criminal defendants. Most commonly, these cases arise based on the interaction between the person suspected of a crime and law enforcement (police or sheriff) when an arrest is attempted.
