Internet Luring of a Child Douglas County Attorney Sting by Police - Denver Defense Lawyers Fighting Unjust Charges

Internet-Luring-Lawyer.jpgCriminal Defense Lawyers Know - Internet Luring of a Child Involves Police Pretending

We grow weary of seeing police behave inappropriately. Whether it is the Douglas County, Colorado Sheriff's Office, or the Denver Police, the story is the same across Colorado. Officers and deputies entrap men and women into sexual discussions and then charge them with a serious sexual offense called Internet Luring of a Child. Children are never involved or put at risk - since police officers are pretending to be kids interested in sexual discussions and meetings. If you look carefully, you will see that law enforcement engages in these despicable acts because they have grant money from the federal government, and they must show results or their grant will not be renewed. So, they lie, cheat and steal to get women and men to invite a child under fifteen to meet for sex. Read more about how Internet Luring charges can be unconstitutional.

A Denver Lawyer - Probation Officer vs. Parole Officer - Criminal Defense Attorneys Adams County + Brighton

Probation-Parole.jpgWhen someone gets sentenced in Denver or Arapahoe County, the judge has the option of giving a sentence to Probation. This can be combined with a short jail sentence of up to sixty days for a misdemeanor or ninety days for a felony. A Probation sentence necessarily involves a probation officer ("PO"). This is like the supervisor of the person under supervision - often called the probationer. Probation officers are given the job of ensuring that the probationer stays crime free, completes their community service, pays their court costs, pays their $50 per month for probation supervision, pay restitution, remain employed, live in an environment supportive of rehabilitation, stays in treatment and obey other rules. When a PO gets upset with the progress or behavior of the probationer, they file what is known as a Petition to Revoke Probation. Read more about probation officers and a sentence to probation.

Extradition Lawyer in Denver & What is a Governor's Warrant - Criminal Defense Attorneys

Extradition-Lawyer.jpgDenver Extradition Attorneys - Procedures for State to State Arrest & Transfer

Leaving one state to escape the possibility of being arrested in that state is common. No doubt, it makes it more difficult for police to find them. But, for more serious crimes, police in Denver and Jefferson County place the wanted person's name on NCIC (National Crime Information Center), a national crimes data base, where every police department in the U.S. has access. With every contact, police run the person's name through a state database (CCIC in Colorado) and NCIC. This enables police to learn whether the person they are talking to has any warrants here or elsewhere (a foreign state). Bringing someone back to Colorado or from Colorado, is known as Extradition. The U.S. Constitution requires one state to produce a wanted person found in a separate state. To make the process more uniform, police have a process to extradite someone across state lines. This is known as the Uniform Criminal Extradition Act.

Deregistration-Attorney.jpg

Sex Offender DeRegistration Attorney in Denver

Sexual Assault is a Colorado crime with many difficult consequences. Yet when dealing with the misdemeanor version of this crime, anyone would say that 10 or 15 years of sex offender registration is plenty. After all, it is not a crime of violence and the maximum punishment is two years in the county jail. Once again, Colorado's lawmakers look foolish, as they make it a law that men and women convicted of this crime in Denver and Jefferson County must complete sex offender registration for the rest of their life.
