Do you NEED a Colorado Lawyer?

Your need for a Colorado lawyer with the DAs, courts, and police is pretty easy to identify.  Do you know what is a good plea agreement for your charge in Denver County? Do you know what problems may arise later in your life based on the plea you are making in Jefferson County?  Did you do what the police accuse you of doing in Estes Park?

Aurora SWAT Officer Accused of DUI

An officer with the Arvada Police Department's SWAT unit was arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Arapahoe County, according to 850 KOA. The officer's blood alcohol content (BAC) is not known. In Colorado, your first DUI conviction is usually a misdemeanor offense that can have jail time, fines, and community service as possible punishments.

Denver, Colorado, Hit and Run

A Denver Colorado Resident was arrested following allegations of Leaving the Scene of an Accident (Hit and Run), Careless Driving Resulting in Death, and Careless Driving Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury. As seen in a video on Fox News' website, the suspect turned in front of an oncoming motorcycle without looking, causing the motorcycle to run into the truck, fatally injuring the operator. After the motorcycle hit the vehicle, the driver of the vehicle continued on for fifty more feet, before fleeing the vehicle on foot and leaving behind two passengers.

Texting and Sexting in Colorado

More than one time, we have represented teenagers and adults for charges of Internet Luring related to texting and sexting in Arapahoe County or Douglas County.  In common, there were either provocative photos sent / received, or sexual discussions.  Surprisingly, the District Attorneys prosecuting the cases was not concerned that our clients might have simply received a text with an explicit photo attached.  They were only concerned that the child depicted in the photo was under 18.  In one instance, the teenage girl sending the photo to our client is seen in the photo standing in front of the mirror taking the photo of herself!  Despite the fact that our client did not ask for the photo, or know it was coming, he was charged with a sex crime because he had the photo on his cell phone.  See our Sexting and Texting main page.

Sexual Exploitation of a Child - Johnstown, Colorado

Sexual Exploitation of a Child charges resulted from the combined efforts of the Colorado Springs police, Johnstown police, and the United States Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  The charges of Sexual Exploitation of a Child brought against the Johnstown man in Weld County are serious sex offenses. According to the Greeley Tribune, the Johnstown resident was arrested for allegedly sending and downloading photographs on a peer-to-peer network. The photographs in question are of nude girls between the ages of 7 and 12 years old.

Arvada, Colorado Police Officer - Excessive Force

Despite the accusation that Arvada Police officer used excessive force, police officers are still needed to protect us.  As children we were taught to respect them and cooperate with them as needed. There is still a part of us that would always like to hold police officers in high regard; however we are not always able to do so. During any investigation, the police aren't perfect people, they make mistakes just as everyone else involved. A civilian allegedly spat on an Arvada, Colorado, police officer. In response, the civilian alleges the police officer punched him in the mouth, then slammed him against the police vehicle, and handcuffed him. Two other officers on the scene reported nothing about the punch, claiming the man had been hit by his girlfriend.

Pornography use in Colorado

Pornography use fuels the internet sexual offenses our firm handles, just as alcohol fuels our DUI cases.  It is very rare that our clients who have committed sex offenses did not begin, and maintain their unlawful sexual interest in close proximity to pornography use.  Another common fuel to a man's libido is internet chat.  I am convinced that entry into sexually explicit chat rooms are a solid step toward the commission of a sex offense.

Rifle, Colorado, Marijuana Equipment Dump

A Bureau of Land Management found three tons of Marijuana growing equipment dumped outside Rifle, Colorado. Found were air filters, soil, trash bags, and fertilizer bottles. There were indications the location was used for the previous two years. A park ranger initially discovered the trash by observing a corner of a bag sticking up out of a ravine. According to 9News, it took crews two days and five truckloads to remove all the trash. Section 18-4-511, C.R.S. (littering), was violated, and if the individuals are involved with illegal Marijuana Cultivation they would be guilty of:

Aurora Mother Charged With Child Abuse

The Aurora, Colorado mother of a toddler who died after being hit by a van recently, was released from jail after serving a week in jail and posting a $50,000 bond. She was arrested on a warrant by the Aurora Colorado Police department. The mother has been charged with Child Abuse (Neglect) Resulting in Death. According to 9News, the mother told reporters that she was inside on Facebook during the time of the incident. Her daughter exited the yard through a fence, that was obviously broken, and made her way in front of the van at the worst possible moment. When asked by the police who should have been with her child, the mother replied "well, it was me, obviously."
