Legal Answers
65 Questions Answered

Q. can I reverse my plea of guilty
A: It is possible to withdraw your plea but it is difficult and requires the filing of a motion and a hearing. There are different legal standards if the motion precedes or follows sentencing. They are complex standards and do not lend well to this kind of question answer format. Contact a qualified criminal defense lawyer for a consult. Quickly!
Q. If we are not legally required in Colorado to speak to police/open the door, how can a warrant be issued
A: You are conflating two different issues. Law enforcement has no obligation to question a suspect before requesting a warrant based upon evidence developed in an investigation. Quite often the police will not question the target of that Investigstion for a variety of reasons and while you are correct that you do not have to open a door unless the police have a search warrant - there is no prohibition on the side of law enforcement for proceeding with the prosecution of criminal charges based on what they have. The two are separate issues.
Q. Can I be pulled over for having a quarter sized hole in my tail light?
A: In my opinion yes. The traffic offense is called “defective vehicle” and it can be the basis for a traffic stop as a rear light cannot be broken.
