Disarming a Police Officer Charges in Denver and Jefferson County, Colorado - Easy to Be Charged

Jefferson County and Denver Disarming a Police Officer Charges

Passwords to Police is a Big No - No | Arapahoe County Defense Lawyer

Passwords: Don't Give to Police in Arapahoe County, Aurora or Littleton

So, never give police access to your computer or cell phone - even when they start giving you threats or promises. Police lie. Police Officer Mindset and Motivation.

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.

Denver Police Officers - Renewed Calls for Transparency

Colorado Springs, El Paso County Teen Assaults Police: C.R.S. 18-3-203

Denver Second Degree Assault Attorney

A Colorado Springs and El Paso County Teen has been charged with Second-Degree Assault (C.R.S. 18-3-203) after slapping a Colorado Springs Police Officer investigating an alcohol related traffic accident. After the accident, the two young women involved were fighting and the officer intervened to break it up, when slapped. It is unclear whether the initial slap was intentional or inadvertent during the fight, but the young women also allegedly kicked another officer in the leg when she was taken to the police station. The teen was arrested for second-degree assault on a peace officer and Underage Drinking (C.R.S. 18-13-122), while the other woman involved was charged with DUI (C.R.S. 42-4-1301) and other traffic violations.

Colorado Trooper Arrested for DUI: C.R.S. 42-4-1301

Denver Driving Under the Influence Attorney

A Colorado State Trooper was recently arrested for DUI / DWAI, Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (C.R.S. 42-4-1301) while on-duty in Douglas County, Colorado. The officer was charged with a DUI after drivers witnessed him driving irregularly near Castle Rock and called 911. He is claiming that he suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder related to his job.

Denver Police Officer Arrested - Domestic Violence: C.R.S. 18-6-800.3

Denver Domestic Violence Attorney

A Denver police officer was recently arrested for Domestic Violence (C.R.S. 18-6-800.3) after his girlfriend accused him of pulling her hair out and punching her in the ribs. The Adams County Colorado Sheriff's Office cited the officer for domestic violence ("DV") related charges including third degree assault (C.R.S. 18-3-204). The officer claimed that his girlfriend instigated the altercation when she threw a Barbie-sized Justin Bieber doll at his foot. A Denver police spokesperson said that the officer had been relegated to desk duty because he cannot carry a gun while he is under the restraining order issued in connection with the DV charges. We commend the Adams County Sheriff for holding a fellow officer of the law accountable to the same standard they hold the rest of us. Unfortunately, that is not usually the case with law enforcement.
