A Pillar of Defense in Colorado Springs

Criminal Defense Archives

Is it a crime to give someone drug paraphernalia?

Imagine that two friends are celebrating a birthday. One friend lives in Colorado where recreational marijuana is legal. The other friend lives in Florida, where recreational weed is still against the law. Both friends enjoy smoking pot, but in the case of the Florida friend, he is breaking the law every time he smokes.

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.

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.

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.
