Babysitter held on felony charge of child abuse causing death

Colorado has a criminal statute that singles out child abuse offenses. Under the statute, when child abuse results in death the offense can range from a class 3 felony charge up to first degree murder. The difference between the felony classes is determined by the degree of criminal intent of the actor.

Felony charges alleged against 3 in aftermath of car crash

Street fights that break out spontaneously among younger individuals are commonplace in Colorado and most other states. Sometimes these scuffles and mini-riots include gunshots, killing, wounding and knifing. They can be gang-related. The Colorado Springs police recently arrested three people for engaging in alleged felony offenses over a minor traffic collision that occurred at about 1 a.m. on Sunday, May 21.

Murder charge: teen killed his best friend and friend's mother

Suspect arrested regarding robbery at 7 prominent businesses

When police pull someone over and find a note in the operator's car that apparently orders a bank teller to put "all money in drawer, have pistol, stay calm," is that note enough to establish probable cause for arrest?

Man caught in the act by video, arrested for petty misdemeanor

Some purported crimes are inexplicably tied to the bizarre fantasies of the perpetrator. One man shocked residents of a townhouse community near Colorado Springs on May 3. At about 2 a.m., surveillance video allegedly caught him defecating on the front porch of a home occupied by a family that did not know the perpetrator. The video was apparently posted on social media and the events reported to the police, leading to the arrest of the 33-year-old man for disorderly conduct, a class one petty misdemeanor.
