The impact of domestic violence charges in the military

Even if you are not in the military, being convicted on charges of domestic violence could have a huge impact on your life, especially when it comes to your rights in Colorado. You may no longer be able to buy firearms, for example. Even a short stint in jail could also cause you to lose your job, and the charges could make it hard for you to find a new one.

What is meant by presumtive sentencing ranges in Colorado?

There is a significant amount of legalese in a Colorado criminal court. Some people charged with a crime may not quite understand what all the terminology means. This is one reason why it's important to have an experienced attorney by your side to help ensure that your rights are not violated while your case moves through the criminal justice system.

Understanding alcohol DWI in Colorado

Just the same as it is in every other state, it is illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol in Colorado. The Colorado Department of Revenue Division of Motor Vehicles shares a variety of information on alcohol DWI, including the process that you will be faced with if arrested for this crime.

Can domestic violence replace other charges?

If you are standing on the sidewalk in front of a restaurant and you get in a fight with another person who thinks, for example, that you cut in front of him or her in line to get a table, you could be charged with assault for striking that person. However, if you strike your spouse, you could instead be charged with domestic violence. Since both incidents involve the same action on your part, does the domestic violence charge really replace the assault charge, just because it happened in the home?

Can an Alford plea be used in a domestic violence case?

When someone is charged with domestic violence, he or she may feel as though the charges were brought unfairly. The person accused of domestic violence may state that he or she is innocent of one or more of the elements of the charge.
