Possession of a Weapon by Previous Offender - C.R.S. 18-12-108

The Colorado Possession of a Weapon by Previous Offender statute, C.R.S. 18-12-108, is a good example of a law that would have been unthinkable a couple of generations ago. Public opinion, mostly influenced by news commentators, has played a major role in shifting long held beliefs in our country. It was once assumed that citizens have a basic human right to defend themselves, and after a person paid for a crime; his or her rights should be restored.

Theft Charges Denver Attorney, C.R.S. 18-4-401

Theft, C.R.S. 18-4-401, cases in Colorado can be very burdensome to manage and require the help of an experienced Denver criminal lawyer to help. Law enforcement officers in Lone Tree, Lakewood, and Parker are quick to charge a person with Theft without having proof that it occurred. A criminal defense lawyer that you hire should be knowledgeable of the tricks police and District Attorneys in Douglas, Arapahoe, and Jefferson County use.

Victims Call First and Win the Race to Lazy Police

Did you know that the winner of the race to call the police first is generally going to be the "victim" in the police department's eyes? The problem is, wimps, whiners and people with no spine call the police as a matter of habit to solve their problems. You've heard of the uninsured who takes themselves and their kids to the emergency room for a cold at everyone else's expense? In criminal law, we have the same class of people in case like Harassment, Disorderly Conduct and Assault.

Misdemeanor Unlawful Sexual Contact Charges Can Become a Felony

Even I am sometimes surprised at how a misdemeanor charge like Unlawful Sexual Contact can become a felony in Denver, Arapahoe or Jefferson County. This crime normally involves touching someone else's intimate parts without their permission. For example, imagine a drunk fellow grabbing the breast or butt of a woman in a bar. But, there are circumstances where this charge morphs into an even more serious felony crime.

Lawyer for Prohibited Use of Weapons in Denver, C.R.S. 18-12-106

Prohibited Use of Weapons is a crime in Douglas, Denver and Arapahoe County. If facing charges, you should know what Prohibited Use of Weapons means and what it does not mean. This charge can be filed against you for being drunk with a gun, pointing a gun at another person, recklessly discharging a gun or bow and arrow, setting a trap, or using some specific martial arts style weapons in a public place. These are all of the criminal acts according to the Colorado State Statute C.R.S. 18-12-106.

Why Plea Bargain with District Attorneys in a Colorado Court?

I think the general consensus of people living in the Denver Metro area is that when someone accepts a Plea Bargain from District Attorneys, the person must be guilty of something worse. I do not believe this is true, especially in serious felony Sexual Assault matters, where men and women are often overcharged.

DUI / DWAI: Persistent Drunk Drivers in Colorado

Colorado lawmakers have done it again, by classifying people who have a DUI or DWAI with a name which doesn't have any connection to the label's ordinary meaning. "Persistent" implies more than one time, or over and over, right? Not in case of a DUI / DWAI.

Harassment, C.R.S. 18-9-111, Cases in Douglas County Rearing Their Ugly Head

Harassment charges in Douglas, Arapahoe, and Denver County require the aid of a criminal defense lawyer. This statute is very broad and covers a multitude of alleged offenses. When you are charged with striking someone (especially if it is Domestic Violence), saying a bad word to a cop, or calling someone repeatedly at odd hours of the night, you must speak with an attorney before speaking with the cops.
