Criminal Charges Archives

Make Your Criminal Record Disappear

With the passage of House Bill 19-1275, Colorado has expanded the number and nature of prior convictions eligible for sealing. For those who have a criminal record but have since led a law-abiding life, the new law gives a chance to truly let the past be the past- and the future to no longer be tainted by a mistake that happened many years ago.

Mandatory minimums reform bill introduced

The fiscal crisis of 2008 widely informed criminal justice sentencing reform at the state level over the past several years. As legislators faced budgets in increasing need of number crunching, the majority of states took action to reduce their prison populations and related costs through sentencing reform. However, those facing criminal charges at the federal level have not largely benefitted from this trend.

Colorado Supreme Court rules on confessions issue

Confessions are a tricky business. One would assume that if an accused person is willing to face punishment by confessing, the confession must be credible. After all, no one would confess to a crime that they did not commit, right? Not exactly. False confessions are often obtained by law enforcement through various coercive or illegal means. In addition, some individuals falsely confess to crimes for reasons of their own.

Avoiding self incrimination through social media use

We live in an age where the word "personal" has begun to morph in both meaning and practice. It seems that little information is truly personal anymore in the sense that it may be kept private. The government keeps tabs on our addresses, voting records and other critical information through various means, employers are granted access to scan our corporate email accounts and we post increasingly personal information online through social networking.

Police cracking down on non-compliant sex offenders in Colorado

Due to a variety of reasons, law makers, judges and the general public have largely supported severe on-going restrictions imposed upon convicted sex offenders, even after they have served the length of their sentences. Few lawbreakers are subject to the kinds of restrictions that those convicted of sex crimes must observe on a daily basis. This reality can be quite frustrating for some offenders, who would prefer to move on with their lives free of registration requirements, restrictive housing laws and employment challenges.
