I am a Pennsylvania resident who was visiting Colorado shortly after my father's death. I received a DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to report an accident as well as "serious" injury to someone. The charge was initially a misdeme...
The problem you are running into with your questions is frustrating, but the reason attorneys do not know what will happen with your case is that a new Republican District Attorney was elected to that jurisdiction. Understand that he ran on a right of left platform to be tough on crime among other things. For this reason there is no way to know what he might do with your case. DO NOT speak about the evidence on a public forum, but understand the likelihood of you reaching your goal of no jail and no felony is based largely on the strength of the evidence. That can only be discussed in private with an attorney.

Dear Grand Junction:
In Colorado, when you are talking about "backup" tests you are only concerned with a blood test. There is no "backup" test for a breath sample. If you want the second sample of blood tested you must engage a private company to do it. The State Patrol will then release the blood to that company and when the testing is complete you will be told that result.
Best of Luck,
We got in a big fight and it got bad he punched me the tried to strangle me and I'm five months pregnant he called the police on him self he got arrested and his bond is 10000
Dear Grand Junction:
The facts are serious on their face. I would expect that initially the would want to put him in jail unless and until his attorney can show why the case is not that serious.
Best of Luck,
The charge is consumption of Marijuana as a minor. The officer did smell marijuana odor from my vehicle and capture bodycam footage of me saying "I smoked a spliff earlier with my boss" but did not conduct any searches or field testing for marijua...
Yes. There is enough evidence to convict you.See question
I wonder if someone is not arrested when otherwise should have been, does that mean they are under investigation, or could someone else at the residence be under investigation
I have seen the police do what you describe in situations when they are completing a larger scale drug investigation and the person detained and let go is a smaller part of it. That person was later arrested or issued a Simmons to go to court and charged when the investigation was complete.
I was part of a drug investigation in Garfield County, Colorado. They didn't have any controlled buys nor wire taps, but did get some money transfers and text message conversations off my phone, as well as put a tracking device on my vehicle....
Your question is fair but incredibly difficult to answer. I might suggest you are thinking about it the wrong way. The plea offer is directly related to you and your attorney's ability to weaken the case through diligent investigation and to uncover reasons you are worthy of a break. Thus, much has to be done before any prediction about your outcome can be made. You need either a private attorney or a public defender to help you.
For criminal court rather than DMV. I was arrested for DUI while visiting Colorado. I had recently returned from overseas and am not really resident in any state yet. Is there advantage to establishing residency in another state prior to sente...
There is a benefit to establishing residency in another state. You may be able to avoid competing alcohol treatment as only Colorado residents are required to do so. While you are not guaranteed this result, it would be worth a try.
summons for 3rd degree assault..drinking with friend talking loud..roommate calls 911..I get the summons..friend told them nothing happened and can he just go home..roommates were in there bedrooms.
All charges can possibly be dismissed. The key is that once charges are filed, only the DA can dismiss. It matters if the alleged victim says nothing happened or does not want to cooperate, but that alone rarely leads the DA to dismiss. It is worth it to get the reports and go over them with an attorney to see the best way to try to secure a dismissal.
OK I'm a 19 year old male who turns 20 in 2 months. I'm friends with a 17 year old woman, who recently asked me out. Is me being almost 3 years older a legal problem?
You should be fine so long as you are not in a "position of trust" with regard to her supervision or care.
I have a warrant for misdemeanor in the state of Colorado and am currently not in that state. The bondsman said if I do not show up within 30 days the consigner will receive a felony lose her government housing and go to jail. I'm not planning on ...
I am not aware of any felony the co-signer is on the hook for unless the state thinks she is aiding in an escape. Even then, escape from a misdemeanor is simply another misdemeanor. I have never seen nor myself filed an escape change in this situation when I was a deputy district attorney in the past. If, however, she were charged, then the simple fact that she faces a criminal charge does have an effect on her government housing. The state or the bonds person can also go after the co-signer for the bond that was revoked for your failure to appear.
Best of luck,
