A man whose residence caught fire as officers were attempting to arrest him on an outstanding warrant has been arrested, and he now faces multiple charges. Colorado police suspect that the man purposefully set fire to his mobile home in an attempt to resist arrest. He is now charged with arson as well as cruelty to animals, and other charges against him are pending as he prepares his criminal defense.

Denver: criminal defense needed for pot use?

It seems difficult for some people, particularly those in public service, to resist their natural temptation to tell others what to do and how to live. Last year a majority of residents voted to legalize recreational marijuana in Colorado. Now it seems that Denver's Mayor wants to complicate matters by introducing a series of restrictions that will strictly prohibit the use in certain locations and situations, and provide a severe criminal penalty for people who violate it, necessitating once again a criminal defense to marijuana use.

2 young Colorado men arrested in relation to burglary charges

Young people can often have the grave misconception that they are invincible. Especially when another friend is involved, adolescents can get themselves into a lot of trouble due to the incorrect mindset that they are untouchable. However, when charged with a crime, adolescents quickly realize just how serious the consequences for their actions can be. Two Colorado young men have recently been arrested in relation to burglary charges.

Drug crimes alleged in federal indictment in Colorado

An indictment serves as the end of one aspect of an investigation and the commencement of another. When Colorado authorities believe they have enough evidence to charge an individual in federal court, they will present this information to a prosecutor who will then present the evidence to a grand jury. However, even if an indictment on drug crimes or other charges is issued, this is a long ways away from prosecutors being able to secure a conviction against those defendants who they claim are responsible.

Finding the right criminal defense to a Colorado crime

There are some crimes that are alleged to have been committed that jump out at those reading the news. Although many cases reported involve customary facts that pertain to the more frequently reported crimes, there are others that may make an individual scratch their head in determining exactly what crime was committed. In these cases, presenting the right criminal defense in a Colorado courtroom can make all the difference.

Colorado handyman arrested for burglary

Burglaries continue to be a big problem across the state. Often, the individuals involved in a burglary will force entry into a home that is in a rural area in order to avoid detection from neighbors and law enforcement. However, when Colorado police are called to the scene of a burglary, they are still able to rely on certain investigative techniques in their attempt to determine who was responsible.

Colorado group charged arrested for drug crimes

In Colorado, police arrested a group of people on charges of drug crimes. 11 individuals were arrested in the drug bust and have been indicted on drug traffic charges for smuggling drugs from Mexico to Colorado.

Criminal defense underway following identity theft accusations

When an individual is arrested, law enforcement officials sometimes charge them with multiple crimes. Any criminal defense must always address the applicable laws in order to defend an individual against multiple allegations. On occasion, the criminal charges cover a number of allegations that may be different and seemingly unrelated to one another.

Colorado criminal defense: Man seeks sentencing reduction

While the need for a vigorous criminal defense during a trial of pending charges is obvious, there are also many other stages during criminal proceedings when effective counsel is necessary. Whether an individual is merely under suspicion of committing a crime or has been convicted and is hoping to overturn a negative result, an effective criminal defense strategy is crucial. A recent post-conviction application by a man serving a 15 year prison term in Colorado underscores the fact that legal issues often remain long after the ink is dry on a judge's sentencing order.

Supreme Court: okay to collect DNA after an arrest

A recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court may not change DNA collection laws in Colorado but it does highlight the debate surrounding laws that allow police to collect DNA samples without a warrant. The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that it is okay for police to collect DNA from individuals arrested for a crime without getting a search warrant.
