  • Does the express consent law authorize police to forcably draw blood from a driver with no accident or operation of the veh?

    Gregory’s Answer

    No. In Colorado, the only situation where blood may be drawn forcefully, is if there exists serious bodily injury to any party or death.

  • Pressing charges

    Gregory’s Answer

    Reporting a crime has no deadline. There are statutes of limitation that apply to how long you have to report it. Bottom line is that the longer you wait, generally, the harder it is for the prosecutors to prove.

    Depending on the ex’s purpose for breaking into the house, this may be very easily charged as a burglary-dwelling (Class 3 Felony). Short answer-you’ve got nothing to lose by filing a report and documenting this action. Worst case scenario, a prosecutor should speak with you and explain why this would be difficult to prosecute. However, as a domestic violence case, the police that responded did not have the discretion to NOT file a case, if they found probable cause for arrest. Good luck!

  • Can I possess a firearm after a differed judgment (9 years ago) on a domestic violence case?

    Gregory’s Answer

    Take the time and small cost ($65) to Seal your Record. Short answer-if you do not have a conviction for a DV related case (sounds like you don’t), and you have no other prohibitions to owning a gun, you should be legal to possess a firearm.

  • What will happened to me for first time shoplifting I've never been in trouble before in my life

    Gregory’s Answer

    Everything depends on the facts of the case and what court you find yourself in. I would recommend that you go to the first court date and speak with the prosecutor. If you are genuinely sorry for your actions and are willing to take a shoplifting class (4 hours), you should be able to get a deferred judgment that will ultimately be dismissed if you meet the conditions. IF THAT IS NOT OFFERED TO YOU, then you should ask for time to talk to a lawyer. If you are in a municipal court and they ask you to enter a not guilty plea before leaving, remember to ask for a jury trial, submit a written request for 6 jurors (court clerk has forms) and pay the $25 jury fee before leaving.
