The summer is a peak time for fatal crashes in Colorado. Because law enforcement and the Colorado Department of Transportation are aware of the increased number of fatal crashes between Memorial Day and Labor Day, they are instituting several safety campaigns hoping to lower the number of deaths this summer. Because of the safety campaigns, many drivers may find themselves arrested and charged with DUI this summer.
Although the state of Colorado has legalized marijuana, many ways remain in which individuals can find themselves on the wrong side of the law when it comes to consumption and use. Several tourists enjoying marijuana party tours discovered just how much of a legal headache can still occur when partaking in marijuana products. Two different tour company vehicles containing tourists were subject to recent raids, and one driver was even arrested and charged with a DUI.
No one is immune to being accused of wrongdoing. Unfortunately, some accusations can result in arrests and serious criminal charges. One Colorado sheriff's deputy has recently found himself on the other side of the law after being charged with multiple felonies. He has likely sought the advice of a criminal defense attorney in the aftermath of his charges.
Proper disposal of chemicals is important for the environment and cleanliness of water sources. Violation of proper disposal can result in felonies and serious fines. A recent stakeout near a Colorado river resulted in the arrest of one man who was disposing household chemicals into the water.
When you see the blue lights flashing in your rearview mirror, you may panic at first, especially if you have any alcohol or drugs in your system. It is not wise to allow panic to dictate your actions, but it is still a good idea to take the matter seriously.
