Pornography - Gasoline for Sex Crimes & Burning Relationships

Sexual crimes like Sexual Assault, Indecent Exposure, or Public Indecency derive from a distorted view of reality created by pornography. Whether you tried to fly off your porch as a child after watching a superman movie, or asked a woman to perform a sex act you saw in a porn video, you've seen the power of the media, and the mind, at work.  Add in a hyper sex drive and a chemical release in the brain and a firestorm starts brewing. Read more on the Power of Pornography.

Colorado Enticement of a Child, Propaganda to "Believe the Children"

Enticement of a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-305, is a sexual offense crime in Colorado, with comprehensive consequences to anyone's future. Prosecutors in Arapahoe, Douglas and Jefferson County are waging a war of propaganda to make it easier to convict anyone accused of this crime and other child sex crimes, like Sexual Assault on a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-405.

Bail / Bond - What Types do Colorado Courts Require?

The terms "Bail and Bond" often have the same meaning. They involve the process of posting security with a court to ensure the later attendance of a defendant at court hearings. Because many people charged with crimes fail to appear after their release from jail, courts now require the posting of a bail / bond in all serious cases in Jefferson and Denver County.

Prostitution, Solicitation & Friends With Benefits Housing

Moral changes in American culture is a given. The latest proof is that men are offering women a place to live in exchange for sex. The question which naturally arises is whether "friends with benefits" is considered a form of Prostitution. Additionally, what sort of a risk do men incur when they place an advertisement for this type of arrangement on Craigslist - can it be Solicitation? Read What's the Difference Between Prostitution and Solicitation.

In many cases no physical evidence is required to face a Third Degree Assault charge. In today's blog, I'll give you the legal and simple definition of this offense, and look at a few examples of how it is charged.

Colorado Sexual Exploitation of a Child - Needs Updating

Sexting and Texting, or Sexting, has become more common as society teaches kids there are no boundaries to their sexuality, including age limitations. The heavy emphasis on sex among TV producers and the music industry has programmed kids that it is ok to do whatever they want - including sending nude images to classmates. Colorado lawmakers in Denver and Jefferson County have not gotten the message, as Sexual Exploitation of a Child charges, under C.R.S. 18-6-403, have spilled over to high school conduct.

Colorado Sexual Assault on a Child and the Spaghetti Principle

Being falsely charged of Sexual Assault on a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-405, in Arapahoe or Jefferson County is about the most terrifying thing a person can experience. The falsely accused man or woman is suddenly placed in a literal fight for his or her life in a legal system which is growing more hostile toward the accused every year. I hear from at least one or two people every month who tell me they have been charged with Sexual Assault involving a Child and the only evidence is the word of a child. Read Why it is So Easy to be Charged.

These Lawyers: Why I Like Public Defenders, Why I Don't

Public Defenders, often called PDs, are some of the hardest working lawyers you'll ever encounter. They tirelessly work themselves to exhaustion without a great deal of money in return. They sacrifice personal time to help those who can't afford a private lawyer. You have to admire them in Denver, Jefferson and Adams County Courts.

Colorado's Three Main Burglary Crimes

The Basic Burglary Definition

In Denver, Broomfield and Jefferson County, defendants are charged with Burglary after unlawfully entering some kind of structure with intent to commit another crime. People typically assume that burglary means a person has broken into a residence and stolen something. However, the underlying crime does not necessarily need to be theft, but could be any crime. In addition to theft, burglary allegations often involve allegations of assault. Regardless of the crime, if the person enters or remains unlawfully (i.e. without permission) with the intent to commit any crime, that person can be charged with Burglary.

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.

Police Officers & Courts: Look Out for #1

In the legal business, police officers are the first judge people meet. Really. Arapahoe and Douglas County officers must make decisions on who to arrest and what crimes to charge. In a domestic violence situation, they will generally charge the man becaue this is safest. In a fight between two men, however, officers are torn with who to charge. The result? They often just charge both men because this is safer for their careers.
