Both eyewitness identification and forensic evidence can go a long way in supporting the prosecution of an accused criminal wrongdoer under the Colorado criminal laws. When such evidence does not exist, and if there is not a valid confession, the defendant may have a viable defense to the charges. Recently, a 46-year-old man was arrested by the Colorado Springs Police for allegedly stabbing another male near the Dorchester Park section of the city.

Colorado to issue refunds if criminal conviction is overturned.

For some Colorado residents, being accused of a crime is the first step in a series of terrible circumstances. Having to defend against criminal charges is stressful, both for the defendant and his or her family and friends. Very often, jobs are lost, relationships are ended and financial ruin takes place. For those who are eventually convicted, things degrade even further. A recent court ruling, however, aims to help make things right for those who are able to have a criminal conviction overturned.

Conviction on felonies means license revocation for the accused

In Colorado and elsewhere, a criminal arrest can have far-reaching consequences for an accused individual.

Felony charges filed against war vet accused of storming mosque

In Colorado, the crime of criminal mischief is defined as knowingly damaging the property of another or property owned jointly with another. It can be a felony or misdemeanor, depending on the amount of damages inflicted, with damages over $1,000 generally being charged as a felony. The issue is relevant to a recent attack against a Fort Collins mosque in which a 35-year-old man is accused of kicking in the door, breaking windows and throwing rocks into the prayer area.
