    It sounds like you have been charged with a municipal theft which is a petty offense or a county theft charge which is a misdemeanor. I agree with Christopher Daniel Leroi, you don’t want this on your criminal history, especially considering you currently have a “clean record.” When I was a city prosecutor with Denver, I would routinely offer a Deferred Judgment (“DJ”) for those similarly situated. A DJ essentially means if you fulfill probation terms and conditions successfully, your case...

    Provided the prosecution makes an offer, because they are not under any obligation to offer your husband anything, the offer itself is totally up to that prosecutor. If the facts are as you say, it appears that there may be a defense of property argument to be made as well as self defense. If the prosecution sees either or both of those arguments as a hindrance to their case, in Denver, your husband may be able to get a 2nd degree assault (drugging the victim) offer. Although this offer is...

    Based on what you’ve written (but I can’t be sure without looking at your paperwork) you were initially charged with 3rd degree assault and criminal trespassing, which are state charges. The 3rd degree assault is a class 1 misdemeanor; however, the criminal trespassing could either be a felony or misdemeanor depending upon how it was charged. Then it sounds like those initial charges were dropped and you were served with a citation for assault and disturbing the peace which are City...

  4. It's my second DV charge - will I have to serve jail time?

    Your first question was “will I serve jail time?” First let me say, you should get an attorney to represent you in this matter. It is hard to say whether you will serve jail time as there are a number of factors that come into play in your case. One is whether you are actually convicted of the offense. Of course, if you go to trial and win you will not serve jail time. Two, if you plead guilty, is there a stipulation between yourself and the prosecution that there would be no jail time....

    Your first question was “when can he get out?” There are a number of ways your friend can get out: 1.) If the Prosecutor dismisses the case; 2.) Your friend takes the case to trial and wins; 3.) The prosecution offers a plea that does not include jail time and your friend takes the offer; 4.) the Prosecution agrees to a Personal Recognizance bond (meaning your friend promises to appear); 5) pending all these situations, your friend makes bail. Your second question was “what is the bail...

  6. My boyfriend is on probation and he violated it and was on the run for 7 months is there any chance he can get reinstated

    It does not help your boyfriend’s case for reinstatement that he has been on the run. Nevertheless, the biggest factor on whether your boyfriend will get reinstated is if the Judge decides to grant reinstatement. The judge ultimately decides, after a probation revocation is admitted or proven in court, whether the probationer gets another chance. Having said that, it is in your boyfriend’s best interest to offer mitigation as to why he violated and was on the run. For example, he may have...

    A lot depends on your plea of "not guilty" and your constitutional right to a "speedy trial". Speedy trial means that the government has an specific time frame in which to prosecute you for a crime they have charged you with once you have pled not guilty. I would consult with a lawyer in your area to check your speedy trial time frame as it relates to your not guilty plea.
