Did you know that anyone in Colorado is eligible to petition the courts to have their criminal records sealed?

A drunk driving arrest can go wrong

Colorado, just the same as every other state in the nation, looks down upon driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

How do I invoke my right to remain silent after arrest?

"You have the right to remain silent." Anyone who has seen a cop drama knows those words by heart -- and if you have been arrested, you should have been read that statement as a part of your Miranda rights.

They are also afforded the right to an attorney, who can provide them with additional information about their legal options. What do your Miranda rights mean for your criminal defense case? Today, we explore the implications of those rights upon the allegations you may be facing.
