228 drivers arrested during Halloween DUI enforcement blitz

The Colorado Department of Transportation launched a major enforcement campaign beginning on Halloween to target drunk drivers on state roads. During this Halloween enforcement period, stretching from Oct. 31 to Nov. 4, 228 drivers were arrested and charged with impaired driving. Called "The Heat Is On," the campaign involved 91 different law enforcement agencies across the state. It marked a significant drop from the toll of the year before, however, when 378 people were arrested during the special enforcement period. Spokespeople said that holiday weekends are of particular concern for DUI because people go out to parties and consume alcohol or cannabis before driving home.

What you need to know about embezzlement of public property

In the leadup to the 2020 presidential election, political coverage seems to be everywhere. If you have a passion for leadership or policy, you may be thinking about becoming a public servant. Alternatively, you may already have a role in federal, state or local government. Either way, you must understand embezzlement of public property, which is a crime in the Centennial State. 

Judicial bias may lead to bad decisions

For people facing criminal charges in Colorado, the idea that the judge presiding over the case might be biased can be frightening. Judges are simply people, though, and they bring their biases into the courtroom more than those in the legal profession would like to admit. Indeed, research has shown that a person's belief in his or her objectivity might actually increase the likelihood of a biased outcome. A criminal defense lawyer might be able to overcome judicial or institutional bias on behalf of a client and get a fair trial.
