Denver Police Brutality and Excessive Force - What to Do?

Police-Brutality.jpgDenver Police Brutality and Excessive Force is Common

Denver Police account for 90% of the statewide reports of police brutality, excessive force and rights violations we hear about in our office. It appears inbred into the Denver Police Department that they hit, punch and slam people who verbally challenge them in any way. Maybe they are trained to abuse people. They think they are God, and hide behind their badges.

False Reporting to Authorities in Adams County - The Lawyer's Definition

False-Reporting-Authorities.jpgFalse Reporting to Authorities in Adams County - How Does it Occur?

This law has become more complex in Adams County and across Colorado. Today, it is no longer limited to a lie to police about who you are. Let's consider the definition of False Reporting to Authorities, and look at some practical examples.

Firearms - Possession of a Dangerous Weapon or an Illegal Weapon in Denver

Firearm-Illegal-Weapon.jpgDangerous Weapon Possession and Illegal Weapon Possession Colorado Lawyer Advice

Following a police stop of a vehicle, or if the car was already pulled over, law enforcement often locate firearms or items called Dangerous or Illegal Weapons. If the officers conduct a search in order to locate these items and the occupant of the vehicle did not give permission for the search, top criminal defense lawyers argue a 4th Amendment Violation related to the unconstitutional search and seizure. When the occupant gives permission for the search (something no one should ever do), then we shift our focus to ownership of the item and the definition of a Dangerous or Illegal Weapon.

Disorderly Conduct - Arapahoe and Douglas County Lawyer - Any Way, Any Time, Any Place, Anyone

Disorderly-Conduct-Charges.jpgDisorderly Conduct Lawyer for False Allegations

The crime of Disorderly Conduct is charged loosely in Douglas and Arapahoe County, based on false allegations and false reporting. I say "loosely" because it is a broadly written law, designed to act as a catch all crime. Police Officers will ask their allaged victim questions directed to support false charges.  When police can't figure what else to charge someone with, they frequently chose Disorderly Conduct. Let's look at the definition of Disorderly Conduct, and then you'll see what I mean. Read about Disorderly Conduct and a gun in Pueblo.

Douglas County Lawyers - Menacing Charges in Douglas County, Colorado, C.R.S 18-3-206

Menacing-Lawyer.jpgMenacing Charges by False Allegations in Denver and Douglas County

Menacing is a crime that many people are falsely accused of in Douglas County and Denver. I see more and more charges of threatening by gun or knife arising from false reports to police. Sure, there is more aggression in our society than ever before. But, people are learning how to use the police to get revenge against another person. I represent people throughout our wonderful State in a variety of criminal matters; but Menacing is something especially near to my heart because of the over-charging and abusive false charges I see every day.

The Public Defender Lawyer Gap - Too Much Money to Qualify, Not Enough to Hire a Top Defense Lawyer

Public-Defender-Lawyer.jpgWho Gets a Colorado Public Defender Attorney

Public defender lawyers are available to anyone charged with a crime where the possible sentence is incarceration, where they might lose custody of their children, or where they might be deported. This wonderful provision came from a U.S. Supreme Court case on March 18, 1963, called Gideon v. Wainwright. There, the court, recognized that every person charged with a crime has a constitutional right to an attorney, regardless of their ability to pay. Unfortunately, in Denver and Jefferson County courts, many men and women fall into a gap where they can't afford a private lawyer, but make too much money to qualify for a Public Defender.  Read about whether Public Defenders are good Attorneys.

Prohibited Use of Weapons Lawyer in Denver and Arapahoe County

Prohibited-Use-Weapons-Lawy.jpgCommon Ways to be Charged with Prohibited Use of Weapons in Denver

Men and women are most likely to be charged with the crime of Prohibited Use of Weapons under two scenarios: 1) possession a gun while under the influence of alcohol and 2) discharging a gun accidently in a house or apartment. The gun and alcohol cases rarely involve a discharge of the gun. In the second class of cases, we see the gun fire but no one is injured. In many case, we see the bullet pass through a wall and end up in an adjacent dwelling. Although no one suffers serious bodily injury in these cases, the accused will face charges of Prohibited Use of Weapons, C.R.S. 18-12-106 (b) or (d). In most cases, Prohibited Use of Weapons is a class 2 misdemeanor, with the possibility of a sentence to the Arapahoe County Jail. Read more on Prohibited Use of Weapons charges.

Felony DUI / DWAI Punishment Lawyer - Denver DUI Attorneys and the New Law

Felony-DUI.jpgColorado Felony DUI Attorney - What Qualifies for this Felony Alcohol Charge?

Our criminal defense lawyers have previously written about the Felony DUI law in Denver and across Colorado. The heart of the new law is that if you get a fourth DUI or DWAI (or some other major traffic offenses), you can be charged as a felon. DUI / DWAI 1-3 will be charged as misdemeanors, with a maximum criminal sentence of one year in the Denver County Jail. Prosecutors and Deputy District Attorneys can still charge DUI #4 as a misdemeanor if they desire.  Read more information on Colorado's Felony DUI law.

Can a Domestic Violence Victim Get a Case Dismissed? Denver Criminal Lawyer Explains

DV-Victim.jpgWhen the Victim Who Called Police Wants the Domestic Violence Case Dismissed in Denver

It is very common that a man or woman calls the Denver Police, and then after their friend, spouse or loved one is arrested, changes their mind and wants the police to let him or her go. This usually happens in a domestic violence case. If the case involves kids in the house, Social Services or DHS will be involved in the case as well, and they will become very angry with the mother who wants her husband out of jail. In some cases, we have heard of Social Services workers who threaten to take the children away if their mother wants to dismiss charges. It is tough to get a case dismissed just by asking.

Polygraph - a Criminal Defense Lawyer Strategy Tool | How a Lie Detector is Used

Polygraph-Test.jpgWhat is a Polygraph Test in Colorado and How is it Used by Denver Metro Defense Lawyers

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.

Immigration-DUI.jpgDUI Immigration Consequences - a Criminal Defense Lawyer's Advice

Statute of Limitations in Criminal Cases and Limitations of Actions - Criminal Defense Lawyer Douglas County

Statute-Limitations-Crimina.jpgCriminal Cases and the Statute of Limitations, C.R.S. 16-5-401 - Douglas County

Across Douglas County and in Parker and Castle Rock, every criminal case has a specified period in which the District Attorney and police must begin their prosecution. This is called the statute of limitations or limitation for commencing criminal prosecutions.  The time period depends on the type of crime. Some crimes have no statute of limitations, which makes a defense lawyer's role much harder. The time period begins once upon discovery of the criminal act or the delinquent act. Let's take a look at the general classes of crimes and their limitations period.  Read about forgery and the statute of limitations.
