False domestic violence charges – more common than you think

Few people can dispute the fact that domestic violence and stalking laws protect people from harm in altercations with those they should be able to love and trust. However, there are those who will make a false accusation, which can result in ruining innocent lives and destroyed relationships. Colorado residents should understand how and why this can happen, as well as the long-lasting consequences.

What is a plea bargain?

Many people in Colorado are under the impression that if they ever commit a crime, they will receive a plea bargain that results in a dismissal or reduction in the charge. While it often happens that way in the movies and on television, it doesn't always happen that way in real life. However, that does not mean someone should reject the idea of a plea bargain without consideration.

Divorce and child custody 101

When it comes to divorce with children, it helps to know how the courts determine child custody issues. In Colorado, whenever possible courts prefer to keep parents actively involved in their children's lives after separation or divorce. Parents can have a say in their custody agreements and should learn the pros and cons of each arrangement. Couples who actively work together during their divorce to resolve matters involving their children are well-placed to achieve their custody and visitation goals.

What are probable cause and reasonable suspicion?

Most Coloradans do not understand their rights and how they pertain to the criminal justice system, especially when it applies to traffic/vehicle stops and DUI sobriety checkpoints. The Fourth Amendment in the U.S. Constitution provides protections against unlawful searches and seizures. Law enforcement uses a variety of methods, including the use of probable cause and reasonable suspicion, to identify and apprehend intoxicated motorists and charge them with DUIs.
