I'd recommend you contact attorney Brandon Luna in Grand Junction to discuss this issue. He is very well versed in DUI defense and the legal landscape in the Grand Junction area.

I am an Arizona resident cited for careless driving in Colorado after rear-ending a car in front of me due to a sudden stop. At the time of my court date in Colorado, I will no longer be in Colorado, but my ticket says I am mandated in court.
If you received the ticket and are summoned to appear in Fort Collins you will not need to show up for court if you have an attorney.See question

I have a dui from back in dec. 2011 i finished the process by 9-1-2012 i was pulled over this weekend and was told i had a revoked license and was given a court date. This is the first time after my dui that i have gotten pulled over.
It sounds to me like your license was revoked due to the DUI. If so, you are likely charged with Driving Under Restraint due to a prior alcohol offense under Colorado Revised Statute 42-2-128(1)(d). If convicted of this charge you are facing a mandatory minimum of at least 30 days in jail as well as further DMV consequences. I would recommend contacting an attorney to discuss the case as well as your license status.

I have a domestic violence charge. My husband has filed motions to get it dropped.
Only the district attorney can drop the charge at this time and it is very unlikely that they are going to do so even if your husband wants the charges dropped. They receive letters and motions from alleged victims in many cases and they almost never act on them. I would recommend you meet with an attorney to discuss your options and if you can't afford an attorney you should apply for assistance with the public defender's office.

I spoke to the owners of the property, apologized, and they are fine with dropping the charges. What steps do i need to take?
Unfortunately, it is not up to the property owners. Only the government can file criminal charges. Once the police are involved and charges are filed, the district attorney is the only person that can drop the charges. The fact that the property owners are willing to forgive and forget is good news, but it doesn't mean the charges will go away. I'd recommend hiring an attorney and if you cannot afford one you should seek to have the public defender appointed.

It's really hard to say what your options are going to be or how strong your case is without analyzing the police reports. These types of cases can be very defensible. I'd recommend contacting an attorney to learn more.See question
how does Colorado determine if your blood results indicated over the limit on prescription drugs in other words impairing your ability to drive? I am just visiting Colorado. I live in St. Louis. What to do? will a prior felony for unintentio...
If you are charged with DUI and the prosecution is alleging that you were under the influence of prescription medication they will attempt to prove the charge by using the officer's observations of intoxication and blood results. If you consented to a test of your blood they will measure the amount of the prescription drug that was active in your system and then call upon an expert toxicologist to render an opinion as to whether that amount would have caused you to be under the influence. You will have a chance to rebut their opinions with your medical records and own expert if you choose. These cases can become complicated and you should definitely seek the advice of an attorney. If you are out of state and unable to attend court in Fort Collins an attorney could appear at the preliminary court appearances for you without you having to travel from St. Louis.See question
She was arrests for 3degrees assault and criminal Impersonation
If you girlfriend was arrested in Fort Collins on Friday afternoon or later she won't have a bond set in her case until Monday at 1:30 in Division 1A. She will appear via video and the judge will set a bond. If she was arrested for Criminal Impersonation, a class 6 felony, her bond will likely be a cash or surety bond which means that you will have to post the bond amount in cash or go through a bondsman to get her out. If you talk to her over the phone from the jail over the weekend please do not talk about the facts or circumstances surrounding her arrest. Jail phone calls are recorded and the District Attorney in Fort Collins will likely use those calls against her.See question
Do Miranda rights still exist
The information cannot be used against you if you were in custody. Whether or not you were in "custody" is not always an easy question to answer. You should contact an attorney to discuss your case.See question
