What are the standard field sobriety tests?

Aside from breath alcohol tests like blood tests, urine tests and Breathalyzer tests, there are three primary ways that a Colorado police officer might determine whether you are inebriated during a Standardized Field Sobriety Test. These tests include the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test, the Walk-and-Turn, and the One-Leg Stand (OLS).

Undercover operation nets 280 pounds of pot

An undercover drug operation brought on by another drug bust at a Colorado farm last year has netted Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) officials with 290 pounds of pot. The investigation had gone on for nine months when authorities raided 19 businesses and homes and arrested over a dozen people.

Thousands of Colorado DUI convictions could be thrown out

Staying off the sex offender registry

One of the consequences of being convicted of sex offense crimes is that you might be required to register on the National Sex Offenders Registry. Registration is usually required for those convicted of a criminal offense involving a minor or a violent sex crime such as rape or sexual assault. Being forced to register can create huge obstacles and changes in your life, which is why staying off the list is an important part of many criminal defense strategies.

Methods law enforcement uses to identify intoxicated drivers

Colorado Springs police officers are trained to detect intoxicated drivers on the roadway. They have several methodologies they employ to determine whether someone has been drinking and driving and if the officer has cause to suspect intoxication, the officer can arrest the driver, who will then face DUI charges in court.

Your criminal defense may benefit many others

No matter what charges you're facing, you are better off with an experienced criminal defense attorney who can help you preserve your rights. Even if you are not entirely innocent, it is important to not simply roll over and take whatever a prosecutor wants to throw at you. The reality of the matter is that criminal defense is not just about protecting those who are innocent. It is also the primary way we have to protect those who have made mistakes from being unfairly punished by an overreaching system.
