Colorado Sex Offender Registration / Deregistration from Registry

Many people required to register in Colorado are permitted to seek permission from the Court for Removal from the Sex Offender Registration / Deregistration Registry, C.R.S. 16-22-113. Sex Offenders living in Denver, Arapahoe, Douglas County, or anywhere in of Colorado, must meet specific criteria in the statute before Courts will consider the request for Deregistration. It is important to understand that just because someone meets the guidelines, they cannot automatically stop registering. The Sex Offender must be granted permission to stop registering after completing the Deregistration process.

Criminal Mischief Charges Attorney - C.R.S. 18-4-501

Criminal Mischief, C.R.S. 18-4-501, crimes are charged whenever something gets broken, even if it is an accident or if the property belongs to you and another. This crime can even be a felony, so police have a lot of leverage once they file the charge with the District Attorney. If confronted by Police who are charging this crime, you need an attorney with experience who will fight back to protect your rights.

Colorado Gun Bills = Restrictions on Citizens - Chapter 2

The State of Colorado has recently adopted many new gun laws that will affect all citizens of Colorado in counties like Arapahoe, Jefferson, Douglas, Adams, and Denver county. This intrusive expansion state government will do more harm than good for the honest people of our great state.

Intimate is No Longer Sex, Domestic Violence 18-6-800.3

Coloradoans are faced with a ridiculously broad definition of Domestic Violence (DV) in Colorado under C.R.S. 18-6-800.3. That definition just became broader still. This definition is used in Denver, Arapahoe and Jefferson County, and every County in Colorado. It is so broad that it includes just any act of violence, harassment, intimidation; and any other act involving coercion, control, punishment, intimidation or revenge against a person who has been in an "intimate relationship" with the accused person. It is important to remember that domestic violence is not its own crime, but is added and applied to any crime when the elements are met. Domestic Violence is called a "sentence enhancer."

Clothes on Fire: Domestic Violence, C.R.S. 18-6-801

A Denver man returned home to find his clothes on fire in his closet. He told police that he had returned home and smelled something burning in his bedroom. When he went to investigate, he found his girlfriend leaving the room and discovered several items in his closet had been burned. His girlfriend is facing charges of Criminal Mischief (C.R.S. 18-4-501) as an act of Domestic Violence (C.R.S. 18-6-801), also known as "DV". She is fortunate to not be facing Arson (C.R.S. 18-4-101) charges. It is unclear at this time what reason the woman gave the Denver police for burning the clothes.

Denial of Concealed Carry Permit - Denver Attorney

The process to obtain a Concealed Carry Weapon Permit (or CCW) is overly complicated. If you are trying to obtain a permit, take a look at our Colorado Concealed Carry Permit page to help you get answers to your questions. If you have been denied a CCW, keep reading.

Introducing Contraband in Jail / Prison - C.R.S. 18-8-203, 204

Did you know you could be charged with Introducing Contraband in the Second Degree, a class 6 felony, if you give a woman an uncancelled postage stamp while she is in the custody of a Denver, Arapahoe, or Jefferson County, C.R.S. 18-8-204(2)(d)? It is true, uncancelled postage stamps are among a long list of items that can get you into trouble if you pass them to an inmate in any county jail or detention facility in Colorado. Other prohibited items include forged identification cards, matches, pornography, cigarettes, telephones, or pagers. Loved ones, thinking they are doing a small favor - can find themselves joining a friend on the inside by sneaking in prohibited items. It is easy to see how someone may get caught up in this situation.

Denver Deputy Provides Escape Assistance

The Denver Sheriff's Department is embarrassed that one of its own helped an inmate with an extensive criminal history escape the new Denver County Jail. That jail had previously had the fine distinction of no escapes. The Deputy who aided the escape provided the inmate with a deputy's coat and gave him a ride away from the jail. Escape in Colorado, C.R.S. 18-8-208, can be a class 2, 3 or 4 felony for the person escaping. If someone assists in an escape, they are likely to be charged with Accessory to a Crime, C.R.S. 18-8-105, or Conspiracy to a Crime, C.R.S. 18-2-201. You might want to read our web site pages on Accessory to a Crime and Conspiracy to a Crime, to understand the differences.

Firearms / Gun Control and now Knife Control?

Another reason for new federal and state laws! I just read on-line about a Texas knife attack at Lone Star College in Cypress, Texas. Fourteen people were hurt. Where is our government to protect us? President Obama, will you be sending representatives to Texas to tout knife control? Will you have a press conference on the campus to encourage state lawmakers to pass tougher laws on knives like you did with firearms? How about our liberal Colorado legislature? Will you be entertaining liberal activists from New York and Washington for hearings here?

Lakewood Man Flashing Woman: Public Indecency, C.R.S. 18-7-301

A Lakewood man was arrested by the Lakewood Police after a woman accused him of dropping his pants and exposing himself to her. The woman claims that she was driving out of the parking lot of a Lakewood Safeway when she saw the man with his pants and underwear around his ankles, holding his shirt under his chin and exposing himself to her as she passed. Although it is unclear at this time what this man has been charged with, it is likely is facing charges for either Public Indecency (C.R.S. 18-7-301) or Indecent Exposure (C.R.S. 18-7-302).

Colorado Firearms / Gun Bills = Restrictions on Good Citizens

The State of Colorado has enacted several new firearms laws which will affect the self defense rights of all citizens of Colorado in counties like Arapahoe County, Jefferson, Douglas, Adams, and Denver. This overreaching by our state government will do much more harm than good for the people of this great state.

Lawyers for Reckless Driving Charges

Reckless Driving charges in Denver, Arapahoe, and Douglas County require the assistance of experienced criminal defense attorneys. Reckless Driving in Colorado (C.R.S. 42-4-1401) is defined as when someone "drives a motor vehicle, bicycle, electrical assisted bicycle, or low-power scooter in such a manner as to indicate either a wanton or a willful disregard for the safety of persons or property." A conviction of Reckless Driving in any Colorado County can have many devastating effects on a Colorado driver.
