Colorado officer mounts criminal defense against game charges

A trial is slated to begin in the coming days in the case of a former Colorado police officer who shot and killed an elk in the midst of a municipality.

Colorado's Internet sex crimes laws notoriously lenient

Are Colorado's laws governing sexual predators too lenient? Some investigators believe so, as many people convicted of sex crimes are allowed to serve probation instead of jail time for their Internet sex offenses. The problem, investigators say, lies in the lack of a legal infrastructure for punishing those who are accused of Internet violations. Even though federal regulations mandate jail time in many similar cases, the state system simply has not had the time to catch up with these relatively new technological developments.
