A Pillar of Defense in Colorado Springs

Upset over being asked to sign a prenuptial agreement?

You are very much in love and cannot wait to marry your sweetheart. However, the other day, Sweetie came home and asked you to sign a prenuptial agreement. "It is nothing personal," Sweetie took pains to say. "It is so I can protect assets that have been in my family for years." However, you feel insulted. Of course you would honor Sweetie's desire to keep these assets in the family in the unlikely eventuality of a divorce. To you, this prenuptial agreement conveys that Sweetie finds you untrustworthy and is not interested in truly building a life with you from scratch. It is unromantic and insulting.

Colorado Springs man accused of DUI after crashing his vehicle

No one goes out at night planning to get arrested for a drunk driving charge. Nevertheless, DUI arrests happen every day throughout Colorado, and many of these arrests happen to Colorado Springs residents. In one recent arrest, a man was taken into custody after police say he was operating his vehicle at speeds in excess of 100 mph while intoxicated.

The many forms of menacing

We all have seen our share of B-grade movies about menacing. The evil villain skulks in dark alleyways, basements, maybe in the woods, twirling his moustache with a sardonic smile on his face while waiting for his unsuspecting victim to come near. Then he pounces on her and hauls her off to his cabin, laboratory or wherever he intends to imprison her. Sometimes the plot is so silly that the movie is downright funny. If you face charges of menacing in Colorado, however, this is no laughing matter.

What's the history of the insanity defense against murder?

We've all heard of the "insanity" defense from the movies. It might go something like this: A man is accused of murder, but he is able to show in court that -- although he committed a killing -- the incident cannot be considered murder because the defendant was out of his mind when the killing happened. The defense of insanity against murder charges is, in fact, a legitimate and viable defense in some murder cases, but where did it come from?

What are some of the more common college student crimes?

College is a time for freedom and personal growth for many, but some students run into altercations with the law that could potentially impact the rest of their lives. Criminal convictions can derail their education, make it harder to get a job and lead to fines and jail time that set them back tremendously from the path they were on. That's why it's so important for anyone facing allegations to know exactly what legal options he or she has.

About Colorado's gun laws

Colorado has a relatively permissive attitude to gun ownership, due in large part to its western heritage and vibrant hunting culture. With a concealed carry permit, a gun owner is free to carry a legally-allowed weapon on his or her person, or to transport a gun in a vehicle. He or she can also possess a gun in a restaurant, bar, or business, provided that the owner of the establishment has not expressly forbidden the practice. Permit holders can even carry a gun openly, except in Denver.

Don't talk about your criminal case with family or friends

After an arrest, your stress, anxiety, and frustration can negatively affect your emotional state. To deal with this situation, many people who are awaiting trial or out on bail find it comforting to unburden themselves in conversations with family members or friends. Some people who are free on bail may use Facebook or other social media connect with family members or friends.

Proposed bill could result in an assault weapons ban

In the wake of the Valentine's Day mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, Democratic lawmakers have introduced a proposed assault weapons ban. If the proposed legislation becomes law, it would render the use and ownership of assault weapons in the United States illegal.
