Q. How do they measure for intoxication of weed?
A: The police use a blood test - under Colorado law - the result is in nanograms - 5 nanograms is the bottom number before you can be prosecuted for DUID Driving under the influence of drugs. Here is a link that will help .
Q. I was charged with a DUI that included a minor accident no injuries involved in March 2018. It was a first offense and t
A: Unfortunately it is not only legal it is very commonly the case. You cannot drink alcohol anywhere. When you accept probation - you accept the conditions of probation. In a DUI case it is within the Judge's discretion to order everything in your post. I wish it were different. Good Luck.
Q. My son 2 years ago got a class4 felony for burglary of a church to sleep because we kicked him out. Do I need lawyer
A: I strongly agree with Brian - we are both ex career prosecutors and believe that whenever a person is charged with a felony - they should obtain an attorney. The stakes surrounding a felony conviction are life changing and can be permanent.
Q. If I have parole warrants in Oregon state and I'm living in colorado can the police arrest me here in colorado?
A: Yes. If you are contacted in Colorado you will most likely be arrested on a no bond hold and then extradited back to Oregon. Wish it were not so. H
Q. Is resisting arrest considered a violent crime in the state of Colorado?
A: It is not considered a crime of violence under Colorado law.
Q. Judge signs off on a sum for a misd theft, does this mean the stolen item can be picked up at the time it's served?
A: My experience is the service dog is returned to the original owners much like a stolen car is returned to the rightful owners while the case is being prosecuted and after the theft is well documented for a possible trial at a later time.
Q. Can a defendant change his plea after agreeing to plead guilty to one charge to have other charges dropped?
A: No. Not unless he withdraws from the entire plea bargain
Q. I was on probation left without completing it. 4 yrs later spent 17 days in jail. No court. Is felony off my record?
A: Based on your fact pattern - no. To be certain you can go to to check. The only way to seal a record in Colorado is to have your case completely dismissed. That doesn’t sound like it happened in your case.
Q. If a person purchases an item in "good faith" & later finds out the item was reported stolen,can they now keep it?
A: No they cannot keep the property if it has been stolen even if it was purchased in good faith. They become another victim of the crime and are entitled to compensation called restitution. But unless the owner agrees to relinquish the dog in this case - it must be returned. H
