Domestic assault charges can have serious consequences

You got in a fight with your spouse. Things got a little heated and before you knew it, the cops were on your doorstep. The neighbors called in the domestic disturbance. After a brief investigation, you were hauled from your house, booked into jail and now you are facing domestic assault charges. In the state of Colorado such charges can have serious consequences.

Police: Man resisted arrest attempts regarding protective order

In Colorado as well as elsewhere, the police must struggle with domestic violence and family discordance issues daily.

Domestic dispute results in attempted murder criminal charges

Although incidents of domestic violence may be the foundation of a purported criminal episode, the police may choose to arrest the accused for more serious charges under Colorado law, if the facts justify it. That apparently is the general picture surrounding criminal charges of attempted murder and other violations asserted against a man who was arrested on Christmas Eve after an ongoing series of incidents involving his wife. Boulder County deputies took the man into custody after a 911 call from his wife in which she described his several attempts to grab the steering wheel of their car and cause them to go over a cliff or engage in a head-on collision.

Domestic violence charges in Colorado can have tragic results

The Colorado law on domestic violence was enacted about 25 years ago, and it currently has critics who assert that it needs some revamping. For one thing, the law requires a mandatory arrest where there are signs of domestic violence, but in some instances, that may be a subjective determination or one that is hastily and inaccurately made. Critics would like to see a law that does not so quickly draw the full force of the criminal law and its heavy sanctions for domestic violence charges into the mix.

Domestic violence suspect flees allegations of attempted murder

After recent events, it may not be any wonder that a Colorado man is running from the law.

In fact, three days after the incident, a relative of the man was arrested for allegations of accessory to attempted murder.
