Colorado man's mental state may be used in criminal defense

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.

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.
