Teenagers might be lured into a swatting prank

Teenagers spend a great deal of time interacting on social media or playing online games. This is normal for Colorado kids these days, but it might give you cause for concern about your children becoming addicted to the screen or falling prey to internet predators. As a conscientious parent, you may address these issues by limiting your kids' screen time and talking to them about online activity that is appropriate and what is not allowed. You should also know about a common prank that occurs often in the online gaming world, which can result in serious criminal charges even for minors.

Were you arrested and accused of a crime unfairly?

Being arrested and accused of a crime can be a demoralizing experience, and some arrests and crimes are worse than others. If you were innocent of the crime, you will be left to try and explain your circumstances to family, friends and coworkers -- and your reputation could be permanently damaged.

The risks and costs of a DUI in Colorado Springs

Drinking and driving is never a good idea, but it is inevitable that people do get behind the wheel after having had too much to drink. In every state, federal law limits the blood alcohol content of a driver to 0.08. In Colorado, however, police can cite drivers for "driving while ability impaired" for having a BAC of .05 to .079.

Am I allowed to tell my ex how to spend child support?

During your marriage, your ex was known for being frivolous with money, spending it on unnecessary items when your family needed more important things. Now that you are divorced and your ex has custody of the children, you worry that he or she will also spend the child support you pay unwisely. Child support spending is a valid concern for you and other Colorado parents who pay the parent with primary custody. However, before you tell your ex how to spend this money, you should understand how the family law courts interpret acceptable spending.

Common types of embezzlement

If you face embezzlement charges in Colorado, the prosecutor could allege that you committed any number of illegal acts to accomplish it, depending on the precise circumstances of your case. Embezzlement is a white-collar crime of financial theft committed by someone who has access to or control over someone else's financial property and chooses to steal it or divert it to his or her own benefit.
