A Pillar of Defense in Colorado Springs

June 2018 Archives

How your judge's race might affect your case

These days, racial bias is on the minds of a lot of people -- including those involved in the court system. Even though judges are supposed to be neutral figures, the reality is that everyone is human. Biases can subconsciously affect the way that a person views almost any situation -- even when that person is trying to adhere to the same standards for everyone.

Jail time is mandatory for Colorado's felony DUI offenders

If a Colorado law enforcement official pulls you over and believes you were drinking before getting behind the wheel, you may face serious repercussions if convicted. While even first-time Colorado driving under the influence offenders face serious penalties, as you might expect, those penalties compound considerably if you have received prior DUI convictions within a certain period.

Understanding how aging affects BAC

Alcohol affects everyone differently. Even if your blood alcohol concentration is below the legal limit of .08 percent, you may still face arrest for DUI if a police officer suspects you are under the influence. This can certainly happen to older individuals who can sometimes be more susceptible to intoxication than younger people. 

2 unusual drunk driving defenses

No two drunk driving arrests are ever the same. Each will come with its own unique set of facts and circumstances. In some cases, the prosecution will present a strong case -- with irrefutable evidence -- that is virtually guaranteed to result in a conviction. In other cases, it's clear that the defendant has the upper hand and should aggressively defend against the charges all the way to trial if necessary.

More DUI arrests happened in Colorado Springs than anywhere else

For the Memorial Day weekend, law enforcement agencies all across Colorado decided to tally up their DUI arrests to see which district would end up with the most. A total of 102 agencies participated, providing a very good sample size.

Does it make sense to tell the officer you had only one beer?

When a police officer pulls you over, the best course of action is to cooperate fully. You certainly do not want to follow the lead of a Colorado Springs woman who kicked a cop and tried to bite another during a recent traffic stop. The officers arrested her on several charges.

What are the most common crimes throughout the world?

The human race is divided into cultures that are vastly different from one another, and thousands of miles away from one another. Nevertheless, human nature is human nature and it seems the people tend to get accused of the same kinds of crimes no matter what part of the planet we visit.

Understanding your Miranda rights

Hopefully you will never find yourself in a situation where a Colorado law enforcement officer wants to question you about a criminal or potentially criminal matter. If and when such an occasion arises, however, you need to know that you do not have to answer the officer's questions unless and until you have a criminal defense attorney by your side to protect your rights.

10 minutes after rinsing with mouthwash, you could get a DUI

You go out to eat, and they have mouthwash in the restroom. You're on a date, so you use some and feel grateful that they provided it for free. You pay the bill, hop in your car and then get pulled over as you leave the parking lot when you roll through a stop sign.
