    The situation you have described is not unusual. It is very common for victims to change their version of what happened. The judge won't have authority to rule on your Motion to Dismiss at this time. The judge only has authority to dismiss your case during a trial if a Motion for Judgment of Acquittal is made. He could suppress evidence at a Motions Hearing, but that would not necessarily mean the case would be dismissed. The only person that has authority to dismiss your case at this time...

    Your husband's attorney should be working on his defense and limiting his liability. If he doesn't have an attorney he needs to hire one or seek representation from the public defender's office immediately. You can write a letter to the District Attorney and the court requesting a modification of the protection order. Upon receipt of your letter, a hearing to modify the protection order will be scheduled. The court will not drop the protection order, but it can modify it to allow you...

    In no way should you try and handle this matter yourself. Defending sex offenses is very specialized work even for an experienced criminal defense attorney. It sounds like your case may be very defensible, but there is too much at stake to handle this matter on your own. The Leier Law Office, LLC Kent J. Leier

    You should consult with an attorney right away. There are many good attorneys on avvo that could assist you with this. Be careful what you say to your probation officer. Anything you tell him or her could be used against you in a future proceeding.

    This type of thing is fairly common. You may want an investigator to interview the man if he didn't write out a statement, but in my experience civilians that do ride-a-longs with police are very pro law enforcement in their testimony. Your attorney can help you decide if they should be interviewed. The Leier Law Office, LLC Kent J. Leier

    You absolutely can. Your Pretrial Services Case Manager will send a report to the District Attorney notifying them of your hot UA's and the District Attorney will file a Motion to Revoke Bond. If this happens you will be arrested and a new bond will be set in your case. If your bond is revoked in Weld County and a new bond is set it is usually twice the amount of the original bond. Kent J.
