Your Juvenile Accused of Touching Another Child in Douglas County? Children Accused of Sexual Assault

Juvenile Sexual Assault Allegations in Castle Rock, Castle Pines and Parker

Juvenile Sexual Assault usually involves the knowing touching of the private parts of one child by another. There are few more harmful allegations for your teen or preteen to be facing. Why? Because Colorado law is harsh on kids, just like it is on adults, when allegations of sexual abuse arise. Juvenile Sexual Assault in Colorado.

Jury Trials in Colorado Courts: Why Judges Don't Like Them | A Denver Criminal Lawyer Explains

Colorado Constitutional Right to a Jury Trial

Jury trials in Colorado courts are the salvation of the accused. Judges impose biased restrictions in advance of any conviction, at the request of a district attorney. There is a presumption of guilt, with the excuse of "public safety". After 25 years working as a criminal defense lawyer, I understand why judges don't like jury trials, despite the United States and Colorado Constitutions guarantee of a right to jury trial. The reasons can be summed up in two words, "TIME" and "BIAS". Advantage of a Jury Trial.

Children Contact When Accused of a Sexual Assault Crime in Arapahoe County and Douglas County

Contact with your kids is automatically restricted by a judge in Arapahoe County if you have been accused of a sex crime.

Witness Tampering is a Vague Line in Denver and Jefferson County

Jefferson County and Denver County Lawyer for Witness Tampering

Witness Tampering is what police charge in Jefferson and Denver County, when you or a family member talk with a victim or witness about what they have said to police, or are going to say at trial. There is a fine and vague line which is only crossed when a cop feels you are hurting their case. District Attorneys love to manipulate these conversations their advantage.

"You did not call witness Jones to get him to testify against your son, did you?" You can instantly cross into dangerous territory. More information on Witness Tampering.

Public Indecency in Colorado: C.R.S. 18-7-301 | When You Got to Pee

Public Indecency in Jefferson County - Urinating in Public

Public Indecency can happen in the most unusual circumstances. A friend of mine lives in unincorporated Jefferson County. He told me that late one summer's night, there was a loud argument at a neighbor's home and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department came to investigate. Once things calmed down, and he thought everyone had had left, he heard a noise below his bedroom window. There he found a Sheriff Deputy urinating in the bushes. My friend did not let the deputy know that he saw him - but was amused with the potential report. My friend said that he was in a situation once where he really had to pee and did the same thing. So, he was not going to call in a report on the deputy. If you have to go, and a deputy is called, don't expect the same kindness. Public Indecency

Theft, on the other hand, is all about taking something that does not belong to that person, and the value of the object stolen will determine how serious the Theft charge is in Jefferson County, Colorado.
