The information surrounding a situation of alleged criminal activity is important for various aspects of a case. Authorities need to determine what may have taken place, who was possibly involved and whether charges may be appropriate. This information is also important in court proceedings. If an individual has been charged with domestic violence, the presentation of gathered evidence can play a considerable role in the outcomes.
The criminal proceedings for various crimes can differ, and the specific circumstances under which an alleged event unfolded can be vital information. If an individual is facing charges due to being suspected of criminal involvement, there may be uncertainty as to how the circumstances will affect a specific case. Therefore, it may be wise to seek assistance in formulating a criminal defense and in learning about the proceedings as they relate to the charges filed.
When an individual is not in the right state of mind, he or she may make statements or carry out actions that other parties may consider inappropriate or even illegal. If the situation becomes a legal matter, charges could be filed. As a result, an individual may want to determine how his or her mental state could play into criminal proceedings and in potentially creating a criminal defense.
If a person sees an unfamiliar vehicle parked outside his or her home, he or she may wonder why it is there. It may cause the homeowner to feel unsafe and to feel the need to take protective measures. However, if the situation involves weapons, a person could potentially find him or herself facing charges and possibly hoping to create an effective criminal defense.
Sexual assault allegations can be difficult for most individuals to experience. When these allegations involve a child, they are even more difficult to deal with, especially since the charges come with harsher punishments if convicted. In a recent case, a Colorado man was arrested for sex offenses after he was accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl.
When parents drop their children off at a daycare center, they expect that their children are being well taken care of. Unfortunately, some Colorado daycare workers are subjected to allegations of child abuse that could cost them their job and their freedom. A woman has been arrested for suspicion of child abuse.
After a traffic stop, a 25-year-old man found himself in jail. The Colorado man was charged with multiple drug offenses and other charges. He's being held on a $75,000 bond.
Door-to-door salesmen are not often accused of sexual assaults by their prospective customers. It does happen, however, and thus it is important for their employers to do a thorough check on their backgrounds. In one recent incident in Colorado, a 26-year-old man with an alleged prior criminal record was arrested for allegedly pushing his way into a woman's home and sexually assaulting her by force. The woman says that she fought him off, and the police caught the suspect and charged him with burglary and sex offenses.
There are a flood of arrests and prosecutions occurring nowadays in connection with alleged child pornography taking place on the Internet. A student at the University of Colorado is one of the latest individuals accused of sex offenses involving the use of the Internet. From a defense point of view, such allegations are sometimes exaggerated beyond the actual occurrences. The potentially devastating penalties may be difficult to justify where the accused has not engaged in any in-person contact with the purported minor.
