Make strong challenge to theft arrest where proof is lacking

Sometimes in Colorado or other states a person is being sought for separate criminal allegations in two, three, or more localities at the same time. With respect to theft and property crimes, such offenses do sometimes occur in serial form with a string of offenses carried out by the same perpetrator over an extended period. At times, however, police departments may tend to “pile on,” where they appear to gravitate to someone already identified and seeming to fit the general description of what they’re seeking. That natural tendency, however, can lead to people being arrested for something they didn’t do; and, it is one of the important reasons why a criminal defendant should always attempt to consult with defense counsel right away, preferably even prior to the initial arraignment.

Woman's domestic violence arrest leads to immigration issues

Individuals who are accused of, or arrested on, domestic violence charges often face social, career or other consequences regardless of the outcome of an arrest. Though a strong criminal defense is always a first concern to minimize consequences or clear one’s name, individuals facing such accusations also should understand how to minimize other effects.
