To make matters worse, if any of the above mentioned things is directed at someone who is or has been in an intimate relationship with the accused, then a Domestic Violence enhancer is added to the mix, increasing the severity of the charges.

The Polygraph is often referred to as lie detector test in Jefferson County and across Colorado. This tool is a scientific effort to determine whether someone is lying or not. Fundamentally, it involves highly sensitive tools which measure changes in a person's physiological responses when asked questions. The idea is that a person's breathing, blood pressure, perspiration and heart rate, will change when a lie is told. If it does not change, then the polygraph examiner will say you are telling the truth. Some examiners work for the government and never want you to pass, so they say you fail when you really did not - just to get you riled up and talking.

Rewards for Talking with Police Officers are Expensive

A Real Life Example of What Police Officers Do

Today I spent time on the phone speaking with a police detective from a Denver metro area police department. Part of my conversation dealt with telling the detective why my client would not be talking with him further, now that I am involved. My hope in calling was to reduce the likelihood that my client would be arrested for the allegations against him. At one point, I asked the police officer to give my client a summons, should the District Attorney decide to prosecute. He responded by saying that since my client had spoken to him earlier, he would not pursue an arrest warrant.
