Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered
Q. Possession of fire arm
A: Colorado defines possession for the purpose of the Possession of a Weapon by a Previous Offender statute in the following way: "Possession constitutes a “voluntary act” if the actor was aware of his physical possession or control thereof for a sufficient period to have been able to have terminated it." Not surprisingly, there is no clear answer in that definition. These cases are highly fact-specific and can go either way depending on where the gun is located and who can access it. Long story short, it's a significant risk being anywhere near a firearm after receiving a felony conviction.

Q. 42-3-121(1)(b); I have been falsly accused of this charge. Do I need a lawyer for this? If so, how much $ will it cost?
A: The charge that you accused of is a class 2 misdemeanor traffic offense. It carries a possible penalty of 10-90 days in jail and/or a fine of $150-$300. Often, the ticket you receive allows you to resolve your case with the payment of a fine. It is also frequently the case that the prosecuting attorney will make a plea offer to resolve your charges as well. If you choose to contest the charges you should consult with an attorney so that you can present the best possible defense to the allegations against you.
