Domestic Violence and Protection Orders in Castle Rock - Scared Judges Overuse

DV-Protection-Orders.jpgDouglas County Protections Orders in a Domestic Violence Harassment Case

Judges are like anyone else - sometimes they love their jobs too much. Some judges love their job so much that they actually hurt men, women, children and marriages to protect their job. Of course, they won't admit this, but after 25 years as a criminal defense attorney, I see it more and more. Judges put Protection Orders in place in Domestic Violence cases, so they won't be at risk for criticism if a defendant decides to reoffend.

Conspiracy-Lawyer.jpgCastle Rock, Aurora and Littleton Conspiracy in Arapahoe County, C.R.S. 18-2-201

If you enter into an agreement to help one another commit a crime, you have become a conspirator. Another key element is that you must also have committed an overt act, which is done to further or to advance the underlying crime. The agreement does not need to be formal. While this all sounds intense, it's really pretty simple. Let's look at some examples of Conspiracy in Arapahoe County and Douglas County.

Colorado Organized Crime Control Act - Over used and Misapplied

Colorado-Organized-Crime.jpgDenver Colorado Organized Crime Control Act Lawyer, "Not Meant for How it is Used"

Colorado's organized crime control act is said to be designed to stop gangs of criminals from ruling our streets. Instead, it is used for escalating the punishment against people who might be acting together to commit crimes. How big does your gang need to be to fall within the Colorado Organized Crime Control Act? Just 2. And that is the reason this law is ridiculous as applied.  Read more on the reach of COCCA.

Colorado Probation Sentence Lawyer, C.R.S. 18-1.3-202 | How to Survive a Sentence

Probation-Sentence.jpgProbation Requirements are Not all the Same in Douglas and Jefferson County, Colorado

It is not easy to survive every probation sentence in Jefferson County and Douglas County, Colorado. To do well on probation, the first thing you should know is that not all Probation is the same. In general, it can be unsupervised, supervised, or intensive. Just as their names imply, these three broad categories as listed become increasingly more restrictive. Within the broad ranges mentioned, there are also specialized probation officers (POs) who deal with juveniles, alcohol and drug offenses, sex offenses, and in some counties like Arapahoe, they may specifically deal with veterans or those who are mentally ill. If a war veteran qualifies for this kind of supervision it is called Veteran Court. For the mentally ill, there is this court too. More on Probation Officers.

Pornography - a Powerful Addictive Habit - Men's Accountability and Pornography Group in Denver

Pornography-Habit.jpgPornography Addictions Result in Crimes - Free Speech or Shackled Speech in Denver?

Many people feel that Pornography should remain legal. They set it up as a free speech issue. While we are strong supporters of the First Amendment, we are not so quick to say porn should not be regulated. Our opinion stems from the thousands of divorces which result from Pornography. It is based in the hundreds and hundreds of criminal cases we see where porn results in men and women involving themselves in sexual activity while under the spell of Pornography. It is influenced by the spread of STD's, sexting by kids and sexual assault of siblings. All in all, it is on par with regulated subjects like drugs and alcohol. The damage it does to people is real. Porn destroys.

Obscene Material in Pornography - Denver and Douglas County, Colorado Lawyer

Obscene-Material.jpgWholesale Promotion of Obscenity to a Minor in Douglas County, Colorado - A Defense Attorney's Analysis in Colorado Pornography

A related sexual offense to Promotion of Obscenity to a Minor in Colorado, is Wholesale Promotion of Obscenity to a Minor, C.R.S. 18-7-102(1)(b). Wholesale Promotion of Obscenity to a Minor occurs whenever someone, knowing its content and character, wholesale promotes to a minor or possesses with intent to wholesale promote to a minor any obscene material. To "wholesale promote" this pornography is different than to "promote" it. To wholesale promote means to "manufacture, issue, sell, provide, mail, deliver, transfer, transmit, publish, distribute, circulate, disseminate, or to offer or agree to do the same for purpose of resale." Wholesale Promotion of Obscenity to a Minor is a class 6 felony in Douglas County, Colorado.

Reckless Endangerment - Good Criminal Defense Attorney in Jefferson County, Colorado

Climbing-Reckless-Endangerm.jpgReckless Endangerment Lawyer in Lakewood, Arvada or Wheat Ridge, Colorado

For years, I have called Harassment the "catch all" charge for police when they don't know what to charge for an argument between two people - whether physical or not. The "catch all" charge for driving charges when an accident occurs is Careless Driving. For dangerous conduct which does not involve people driving or arguing, the catch all charge is Reckless Endangerment. It could involve launching a rocket which came down and hurt a house, throwing a rock which crashed through a car window, or the discharge of a gun or bow / arrow, in a back yard. The definition was left vague so that police officers in Jefferson County and Arvada could add it to a broad set of facts. Let's look at that definition.
