It is often said that the public cannot see what is occurring behind closed doors of a marriage and family life. Sadly, many suffer unseen distrust, anger, violence and emotional turmoil with spouses. One former Colorado city council member's private marital struggles have recently been made public after she was charged with felonies and misdemeanors following an argument with her spouse.
The 48-year-old business woman, wife and mother was recently arrested after an argument with her husband. The details of how and what started the argument have not been reported. The woman's 51-year-old husband reported that he was greeted by his wife in the garage with a can of mace while screaming for him to leave the house. The couple has been married for 22 years.
In an alleged attempt to throw objects from the garage at her husband, a tool shattered the windshield of one of their vehicles. After the husband entered the house, the report states that the woman threw kitchen knives at her husband. One of the knives drew a small amount of blood from the man and resulted in a minor injury. Following the woman's arrest, she was formally charged and released on a $10,000 bail.
The woman's attorney stated that there are other important details that have not been released at this time that might explain some of the woman's actions. As in this professional woman's case, charges of felonies can cause significant harm to reputation and employment. Colorado criminal attorneys advise individuals to seek the assistance and advice of a skilled defense attorney as soon as possible following an arrest.
