    You were arrested ten months ago and have never been to court? You should contact the Court and ask a clerk to do some research. Sounds a little strange. Have you thought about GOING to see your lawyer?

    Troy’s Answer

    If this is his first arrest for DV it is unlikely that he will have to serve any jail time in Larimer County. However, probation will file a motion to revoke his probation and depending on what he was on probation for he may have more serious problems. DV is prosecuted very aggressively in Larimer and your boyfriend should consult with a criminal defense attorney or if eligible, apply for a public defender. I am happy to offer a free consultation at my Loveland Office.

  • First time shoplifting, what are the consequences / Do I need a lawyer?

    I'm a 19 year old female who was caught shoplifting for the first time. Obviously, i've learned my lesson and will never do this again due to the fact that i'd rather not jeopardize my future and my education in college. The item was $60 and ...

    Troy’s Answer

    Please look for an attorney in your area who offers a free consultation and talk to that lawyer. Make sure the lawyer is a criminal defense lawyer. Although the charge might be "minor", a conviction or plea to a theft charge could haunt you in the future when you try to find a job, apply for student loans, go to college or get a professional license. Good luck.

  • If a mother press charges on her 16 year old son what is the process

    The 16 year old boy broke his mom window out of anger against her what will really happen to him

    Troy’s Answer

    It is a difficult decision for a parent to "press charges" against a child. I would hope that a parent would seriously reflect over whether a broken window would warrant the harshness of subjecting a child to the criminal justice system. My experience is that the criminal justice system is the LAST place a parent should turn for help.

    You need to search for a post-conviction lawyer in your area to discuss any rights to set aside a conviction. It is a VERY difficult task, and given the time, may be too late. Look for an attorney who handles post conviction or criminal appeals. Good luck. As for the fines and costs, you may want to consult with a bankruptcy lawyer, these types of debt are not often dischargable, but a good bankruptcy lawyer in your area can easily answer for you.

    Troy’s Answer

    Call the Larimer DA, 970-498-7200 and ask to talk to the DA handling your case. Tell them your concerns. They may either help you get to court or decide to dump the case if you are not interested is pursuing it. The prior answer is right, unless you sent back the waiver of service post card you do not have to appear. Call the DA.

    Troy’s Answer

    You can file a motion requesting more time to complete the class. Hire a lawyer or go to the link I've attached.
    This link should get you to a general motion form. Fill it out, tell the judge what you are requesting and file it. You need to be sure the DA gets a copy. Good luck.

    Public Defenders are very good lawyers. Go to Court, see what type of offer is made, don't say anything that could be used against you and request a lawyer.

  • The da that gave a baby killer a plea of 90 days in jail handled my brothers case

    is there any way i can do a retrial

    Troy’s Answer

    What exactly is your question? The fact that you disagree with a prior plea agreement offered to another defendant does not seem to be an issue for appeal in your brother's case. What am I missing?
