Being faced with a Breathalyzer test in Colorado can be a nerve-wracking situation, especially when you are visiting from out of state. It's likely that you had a drink or two, but were convinced that you were not over the limit when you stepped into the car.
Colorado residents who are accused of crimes may not realize that pleading guilty can be the best option in some circumstances. A skilled criminal defense lawyer can often negotiate with prosecuting district attorneys to reduce potential consequences in the event that a plea of guilty is made. One man has recently discovered pleading guilty to be in his best interest after being charged with 17 different felonies.
Most Colorado drivers are aware of the dangers of driving under the influence of any drug, alcohol or other impairing substance. Unfortunately, partaking in any of the impairing substances often inhibits a driver's judgment on how impaired he or she might be. Sadly, poor judgement often results in unnecessary accidents, injuries and DUI charges. One man recently was charged with a DUI and other criminal charges following a head-on collision.
There are some criminal offenses that may feel impossible to recover from. Despite the hopeless feeling, many people in those circumstances find that the right skilled criminal defense attorney can be a helpful advocate in a bad situation. One Colorado man was recently sentenced to jail for a DUI and a hit-and-run accident.
Cellphones are popular items, and also are valuable depending on the brand. The iPhones are typically considered one of the more popular cell phone brands and are also one of the most expensive brands on the market. One Colorado man has recently been charged with felonies following an alleged theft of several new iPhones.
When you are driving outside of your home state, it can be difficult to get a grasp on the slightly different rules of the road, and how different driving laws are enforced. Therefore, it can be common for out-of-state drivers to get pulled over, often being subject to a Breathalyzer test as a result.
No matter the defense strategy, some convictions of criminal charges cannot be avoided. Even though a conviction may be issued in some cases, an attorney can still use negotiation skills to manage the best possible outcome in a bad situation for a defendant. Although convicted of a DUI and other serious charges, a Colorado man's sentence was recently reduced from years in prison to just days in jail.
