Civil Assist in a Criminal Case - What is This Strange Thing? A Douglas County Criminal Lawyer Explains

Civil-Assist.jpgCivil Assist to Get Your Property - A Castle Rock and Parker Criminal Case Lawyer's Advice

When police arrest you, they don't give you notice or time to get necessary things from your house. In Domestic Violence cases, this is a real problem, because the court won't let you go home after you bond out of the Douglas County Jail. Your medicine is at your house. Your wallet is at home. Your phone is at home. Your clothes and car are at home. Your life is there! With any Domestic Violence case, there is a protection order or restraining order preventing you from going back home to get your things. In order for people to be able to function while their criminal case is proceeding, they are granted a one time "Civil Assist" to retrieve personal belongings. The Civil Assist occurs when police are with you and it is a one-time exception to your protection order or restraining order.

Colorado has an organized crime control act, located at C.R.S. 18-17-102. That sounds good, right? We want to keep gangs from ruling our state. Like all good laws in Denver and Arapahoe Count, however, the facts of some criminal cases and crimes which were not intended to fall under the terms of this law sometimes do, and the results are ridiculous. While I am the first to admit we have some great deputy district attorneys who make charging decisions to keep this from happening, some don't.

In a Criminal Case, Do Desperate People Do Desperate Things?

desperate-people-desperate-.jpgYes, sometimes desperate people act irrationally, like trying to make something happen in their Assault, Harassment or Domestic Violence criminal case. Generally, this results in a violation of the Protection / Restraining Order charge, the commission of a new offense, or spoiling a witness. You can avoid this tendency by hiring someone you really trust, and then staying out of their way.
