Employers often take criminal charges of an employee very seriously. Depending on the job that needs to be completed, individuals may find themselves suspended or terminated simply based on the charges. One Colorado man was recently terminated from his job due to the charges of felonies he faces. He has likely sought the advice of a skilled criminal defense attorney as he navigates the aftermath of his charges.
The man was employed as a head soccer coach at a high school. He was recently charged with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. At this time, the details of what he has been accused of have not been reported.
Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the coach was not working as early as April of this year. He was fired from his job, but a call to the school to clarify his employment was confusing. One call confirmed he was not officially terminated, but another confirmed he was officially terminated this summer. The school did not disclose the details of his termination. The charges are considered a class-four felony, and a conviction of each offense could result in as many as four years for each offense.
Colorado criminal defense attorneys understand the impact charges can have on an individual's life even if a conviction is not made. Many find that securing an attorney as soon as possible, following any indication that charges of felonies will be filed, is helpful. Attorneys examine all the collected evidence of a case and advise an individual according to the needs.
