Why you need a criminal defense attorney

If you are facing a criminal charge you may be frightened and confused. This unsurprising since, depending on the charges faced, the consequences for a conviction can be harsh. While imprisonment and fines may be the first thing that comes to mind, collateral consequences such as having a criminal record, that could later harm your chance to get a job, could have a negative impact.

Curb the Collateral Consequences of Campus Crimes

Going off to college is an exciting time in a young person's life. For many, it's fast paced and full of first-time experiences - living apart from mom and dad, making new friends and being held accountable for school and work. But this freedom and independence comes with higher standards of personal responsibility. Even a single lapse in judgment can lead to a serious run in with the law and school authorities.

Plea negotiations 101

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, your first step should be to find a good attorney to take your case. This should be done as soon as possible so negotiations on your case can begin at the earliest possible time. Your attorney can start looking not only for any cracks in your case, but also for any bargaining points that can be used to convince the prosecutor that you are worth a plea negotiation. Plea bargaining can be done at almost any point in a criminal case -- at the beginning, in hearings or even between hearings.

Do all crimes have a statute of limitations in Colorado?

When a crime is committed, many times there is a statute of limitations that applies. This means that the prosecution has a specific amount of time to charge someone with the crime. If the prosecution is unable to do so, then there will never be anyone convicted of the crime -- unless someone were to waive the statute of limitations. That doesn't happen very often, but it might occur in cases involving a plea bargain.

New bike theft prevention program at Colorado College

Bicycle theft is a more common crime than many people might realize. One place where this crime happens quite frequently is on college campuses. Students depend on their bicycles to get to and from class, work and just to have fun. In Colorado Springs, Colorado, a new police initiative is at work, and officers hope it will cut down on the number of bikes stolen -- and to find the people who are stealing them.
