    I got dropped off at my wifes work we went and ate some food and she drove us back to her work parking lot and left the vehicle running and said she would be back within ahalf hour about fuve minutes later a cop was banging on passenger side windo...

    Kent’s Answer

    This doesn't make much sense to me because as the charge indicates you must be driving to be found guilty of "Driving without a License". The officer can charge you with a lot of things, but the question is whether you can be found guilty of it. I would recommend contacting an attorney for a consultation at the very least.

  • I had a felony complaint filed again my roommate and I. The charge will be contributing alcohol to minors, we're both 19.

    It was in our house, yet we never gave alcohol to anyone. Any alcohol that was brought, was brought by these kids. We both didn't even want these kids at our house. The two of the minors were 17.

    Kent’s Answer

    I would recommend calling Brandon Luna for a consultation. He is one of the best attorneys in your area. You don't want to try handling this on your own.

    Kent’s Answer

    The attorneys above are correct. I would add that you should not have any contact with him unless the protection order has been modified to allow such. If he has any contact with you in violation of the protection order he will be facing another class 1 misdemeanor.

  • If arrested for possesion of of narcotic equipment and of a dangerous drug/ no text. What type of drug may they be arresting for

    Child saying the arrest was for being stopped in a car with a meth pipe found in the glove box.

    Kent’s Answer

    I'm a little confused by your question, but it sounds like the individual was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a schedule II controlled substance. If the officer found a meth pipe in the glove box and there was residue in the pipe from it being used to smoke methamphetamine then the individual in possession of the pipe could be charged with possession of a schedule II controlled substance (meth).

  • My boyfriend was charged and arrested with domestic violence they took pictures of scratch. I want the charges to go away??

    He was charged with third degree assault and child abuse because my daughter was in the house. This was an event that was completely blown out of proportion and I want the charges to go away. Someone told me that if I just don't show up and hide o...

    Kent’s Answer

    You aren't going to have much luck hiding out. The District Attorney's Office and other members of law enforcement will likely find you and serve you with a subpoena to testify at the trial. If you do not show up on your subpoena a warrant will issue for your arrest. Your boyfriend needs to consider hiring defense counsel to fight these charges.

    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.

  • How can a write a motion for dismissal, and when can I submit it?

    Kent’s Answer

    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 is the District Attorney and they are not likely to do that based upon a victim changing her story. If you want the case dismissed you will have to go to trial and be found not guilty.

    Your question relates to a very complex area of the law. It is very difficult if not impossible to give you any accurate legal advice on this issue without taking a look at the search warrant and doing an in depth initial consultation. Plus, if digital storage devices, camera, and computers are being searched I'm guessing you are dealing with very serious charges. I'd recommend you contact an attorney to set up an initial consultation.

  • A notice from the DMV office was sent to an address that was not listed on the driver's license.

    Can a hearing still be scheduled even if the 7 day period has gone by by only a single day? Why would the information be sent to somewhere other than the address listed on the license? A change of address was never submitted through the dmv.

    Kent’s Answer

    You still need to request a hearing. If you need assistance on the Western Slope I would recommend contacting Luna Law in Delta.
