I did not know about this charge I have no criminal history clean record I'm in Colorado I have been married to her for 28 years and they put a restraining order on me so I have not contacted her
Absolutely! Plead not guilty. Then get a lawyer.See question
My boyfriend has been held for 5 days now but the police have yet to charge him with anything. I have checked with the denver county courts and they show no records containing his name or any of his information. how long can they hold him?
He must be taken before a judge within 48 hours. You can also hire counsel who can demand to see him immediately.
Good luck.See question
I had filed a waiver of my right to be present at trial in accordance with Federal Rule 43, however, I was unaware that Colorado Rule 43 does not allow for waivers of presence at trial. Can I ask that the case reset be reversed? Pursuant to 9th ...
What?! If you waived your appearance, who was going to appear for you at trial? If a lawyer told you to do this, fire him because he is an idiot. If you came up with this on your own, quit messing around and hire a lawyer asap before you make things worse.See question
I'm getting charged with all three of these for my first time offense and do not know what to expect. I need some advice
You need a lawyer. You are exposed to a possible prison sentence. Begin shopping for counsel. Use avvo, lawyers.com, super lawyers.com, etc., but find someone you like and hire them, soon.See question
Last night in the parking lot of our apartment complex, at around 3:00 am, a man with a gun started breaking out car windows using the butt of the gun. This happened RIGHT under our bedroom window. My husband refused to call the police until this ...
Yes. Smashing car windows of another is a crime. Your husband is wrong and a coward.See question
And also, do they need a separate warrant to access my info in the Garmin? Thanks!
If the cops are taking your GPS, that may be wrong, but you have bigger problems. I would be more concerned about what they are investigating. You need to hire counsel immediately, an arrest may be imminent.

If I did email someone about spending time together, but did not discuss a transfer of money for anything. Also, how quickly do sting happen, if I emailed in September, and just got an email today about this?
You need to retain counsel immediately and speak to no one except your own lawyer. Arrest is likely imminent. If you are arrested, DO NOT speak to police. Ask for a lawyer and remain silent.
I was arrested for two felony charges of scheming to defraud and grand theft from a previous employer. During that time, my roommate and I had a falling out because our landlord evicted us because of my arrest. While I was in jail, my employer had...
Defamation may exist, but you have a clearer case of civil extortion or extortion per se. However, the value of the case is likely not worth the effort. What you do need is a criminal defense lawyer. The effect of a conviction for stealing from your employer will seriously alter your employability for the rest of your life. You need to beat that charge.
Call if you have more questions.

My boyfriend is currently registered as a sex offender for possessing pornography (girls under 18, older than 16). He was twenty at the time he started collecting it. He is on probation and one of the requirements he has to meet is no contact wit...
Yes, they can have him move out. Yes, but it is unlikely, you could make a number of bad choices on how to deal with this and risk losing your child through a dependency and neglect action. Again, this is a very unlikely result. On both issues, there are many things you can do to reduce the chance of these bad results.
On the first issue, your boyfriend needs to consult with a lawyer immediately. In particular, if he is on probation for an indeterminate (life) sex sentence. One of the things he and counsel are likely to consider is a Parental Risk Assessment (PRA). But none of this should be done without a lawyer. The highly antagonistic probation/treatment tormentors are often vicious. One wrong move and his compliance could be cast into doubt, and prison will be inflicted as a consequence.
Your own issue regarding continued child custody will be improved or degraded largely as a result of whether you permit father-child contact after it has been terminated by prob/treatment. If you do not allow contact, after they have banned it, you are not likely to have a problem.
Finally, I know this system is ludicrous, but do not make the mistake of underestimating its unhinged obsession with degrading, controlling, and entrapping your boyfriend. Be careful and call a lawyer.See question

Let me just be straight with you, get a lawyer now. You are the target in a very complicated proceeding much of which goes forward informally among a group of professionals who work with each other on a regular basis. In short, there is a small cadre of representatives of the county and, to some extent, the parties, who negotiate these cases at a rapid rate every day. You are likely to find yourself cranked through the gears with little sense of what's going on other than the fact that it is not going well.
Get a lawyer, now.
