Sexual Assault on a Child in Colorado, C.R.S. 18-3-405, Adams County Defense Attorney

Sex-Assault-Child.jpgChildren Accusing People of Sexual Assault More in Adams County and Denver

Sexual Assault on a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-405, and the numerous other sex crimes involving children appear to be charged more and more in recent years across Denver and Adams County Colorado. From what I've seen, these sexual assault charges are on the rise because police officers and district attorneys are frightened of criticism. They worry that someone will say they did not support a child making these accusations, even if the child has a history of lying. It is all about job security for government workers. After finishing yet another trial involving Sexual Assault on a Child, Position of Trust, and listening to a prosecutor state her case, I am forming a second theory as to why it is so easy to get charged and why it is becoming more likely for people to go to prison for a heinous crime that never happened.

A Drug Offense known as Prescription Drug Fraud in Colorado

Prescription-Fraud.jpgIllegally Obtaining Controlled Substances in Douglas County

Illegally obtaining drugs from a pharmacy in Douglas County is a Drug Offense also known as Prescription Drug Fraud and Deceit. This is a crime that is not restricted to just the homeless person who is down and out. One of the many ways people become hooked on drugs is when a patient has been legitimately treated for long term pain. Drug addicts not only live on the streets of Denver, but they also live in the suburbs of Castle Rock in Douglas County, and Littleton in Jefferson County. When a doctor or housewife does not know where to turn to satisfy her dependency she may try to get creative.

Invasion of Privacy for Sexual Gratification, C.R.S. 18-3-405.6

Invasion-Privacy.jpgInvasion of Privacy for Sexual Gratification - Extraordinary Risk

Invasion of Privacy for Sexual Gratification is defined in C.R.S. 18-3-405.6 as an extraordinary risk crime. Under some circumstances this crime is classified as a misdemeanor and under other circumstances it is considered a felony. Either way the extraordinary risk crime designation can carry with it additional time in Jefferson County or Adams County jail. If it is charged as a Felony, a conviction may bring the added possibility of prison time in a Colorado Department of Corrections prison. A conviction for Invasion of Privacy for Sexual Gratification is a permanent life altering offense.

Public-Indecency.jpgPublic Indecency Charges in Denver (C.R.S. 18-7-301)

Police in Adams, Douglas, and Denver County constantly charge people with Public Indecency. Have you ever had sex in a public place? Have you ever exposed your penis to pee while on a hike in the forests? Have you ever grabbed your wife's butt while shopping at the mall? If you answered any of these questions with a yes and you have never been charged with Public Indecency(read more), count yourself as one of the lucky few. We see cases like these all the time.

Reckless Endangerment, C.R.S. 18-3-208 - In Denver Metro Area

Reckless-Endangerment.jpgReckless Endangerment - Short And Subjective

Reckless Endangerment is defined by C.R.S. 18-3-208 as "a person who recklessly engages in conduct which creates a substantial risk of serious bodily injury to another person." I'm not sure if it is the shortest statute on the books, but it must be a contender.

Burglary in Colorado - C.R.S. 18-4-202, 203, & 204

Burglary.jpgColorado and Burglary - A Good Place to Live, or Not

A March 8, 2016, Fox News report quoted a FBI survey which ranked Colorado as number 30 out of 52 States (including District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) for the number of Burglaries per 100,000 people. That is to say, only 22 other states had fewer Burglaries than Colorado at 438.2. But don't be fooled if you intend to move to Pueblo County, Colorado. It has one of the highest Burglary rates in the country, coming in at a whopping 1,397 Burglaries per 100,000 people! That's the problem with statistics, if you don't have all the information they can be very misleading.

Criminal Mischief Lawyer in Denver, Colorado C.R.S 18-4-501

Criminal-Mischief.jpgCriminal Mischief May Also Include Domestic Violence in Denver

Criminal Mischief is also known as the destruction of another person's property in Denver, Arapahoe, and Douglas County. As a criminal defense attorney who practices law every day in the courts throughout this great state, I have seen many people face false misdemeanor and felony charges. In the worst instances, these same people are dealing with Domestic Violence as a sentence enhancer to those charges. People facing charges of Criminal Mischief need the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

Enticement of a Child Charges and False Reporting Rewarded in Denver

Enticement-Child.jpgEnticement of a Child - Easy to be Charged in Denver

Enticement of a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-305, allegations are brought to District Attorneys' Offices from Douglas, to Custer County, and all over Colorado every day. It is charged when prosecutors believe they can convince a jury that the accused person tried to persuade a child, 14 years old or under, to enter a vehicle, building, room, or secluded place, with the intent to commit sexual assault or unlawful sexual contact. It is a very simple statute and fairly easy for a deputy District Attorney to win, so long as they have a child who claims it happened.

Restitution Out of Court Settlement - The Bible Says it is a Good Idea

Restitution.jpgCriminal Restitution and the Bible - A Perfect Example in Arapahoe County

While many people freak out when the word "Bible" is mentioned, this best selling book of all times has some great advice.  Today, in our criminal lawyer blog, we'll look at a modern example of how the Bible can save you from criminal charges.  This true story involves a recent case where our client was about to be charged with stealing money from his employer.  Fortunately, he received good legal counsel regarding paying Restitution out of court.  It saved him from felony criminal charges and an almost certain felony criminal conviction.  As always, the Bible was right on.

What is an At Large Arrest Warrant, State Arrest Warrant and Search Warrant

Minor in Possession Attorney and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor in Denver - A Prosecutor's Mistake

Minor-Possession-Alcohol.jpgMIP, Minor in Possession and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor Lawyers

In today's social savvy high schools, kids are exposed to all sorts of ways they can get out of trouble if they are charged with Illegal possession or consumption of ethyl alcohol or marijuana by an underage person C.R.S. 18-6-701, also called Minor in Possession, or MIP, in Arapahoe County. This isn't new. I believe it is natural for kids to lie when they are in a tight spot. But two big differences between today and 30 years ago are making it easier for kids to have a readymade excuse.

Gun-Crimes.jpgColorado Gun Crimes and Laws - Denver Firearm Rights Lawyers

Colorado has a ton of gun laws regulating the possession and use of a Firearm.

Here is a list of key gun laws in Denver and across Colorado:
