Domestic violence cases aren't always what they seem

There are many different situations that can result in a domestic violence charge, and it's not fair to assume the accused is at fault in every case. These situations are often complicated. One person might have lashed out fearing for his or her life, or another might have struck first hoping to put an end to a potentially dangerous situation before it got out of hand.

Man no longer faces murder charge after investigation in Colorado

There is no worse thought than imagining hurting your own child, but it does sometimes happen. When your child is an adult, he or she makes decisions that have consequences far more serious than those he or she might have made as a child. Lashing out could become dangerous and threaten you, which is when you may need to defend yourself against your own flesh and blood.

New law makes police report if they seize funds from individuals

When you're pulled over for a traffic violation, the last thing you'd expect is ending up in jail or having your money seized from you. That happened in a case recently, where a man traveling to an auction with $50,000 was accused of having drugs. His cash was seized, even though the officer didn't use a trained drug-sniffing dog and had not found any drugs in the man's possession.

What are some DUI penalties in Colorado?

Colorado has many DUI laws that could affect you and how you're penalized if you're arrested and convicted of a DUI. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can land you with a DUI that has the potential to cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars, threaten your license and could put you in jail.

Do you have a right to appeal a conviction?

After you go through a trial for a criminal act, you may be found guilty. That doesn't have to be the end of your case, though. If the case has been unfair or you believe another court may come to a different conclusion, then you may wish to pursue an appeal. You have a right to appeal any conviction and the sentencing received.

Social media can help you avoid criminal convictions

If you're accused of raping or sexually assaulting another person, you have every right to be offended and to defend yourself. You may have found yourself in a situation where you're facing allegations out of revenge, and that's not fair to you. Fortunately, your attorney can help you in a number of ways.
