Eye in the Sky Nabs Suspect Orwell’s Nightmare?

Recently, a new infrared eye on a Denver police helicopter helped to apprehend a man accused of robbery and assault in the street. Nobody would claim that capturing a criminal is a bad thing. If someone breaks the law, they should be subject to a punishment exactly befitting the crime committed after being granted a fair trial of their peers and found guilty in a court of law; this is the core of our legal system. Everyone has the right to trial,... Read More

Occupy Denver Movement Clashes with Police

The movement that began as Occupy Wall Street has spread across the nation like wildfire. To many the movement is confusing and bemusing-many of the protestors in these movements have been unable to clearly articulate exactly what it is they are trying to accomplish, aside from the ephemeral "Change," and that they are against corporate greed. The one thing that is certain, however, is that more and more these movements are finding themselves at ... Read More

Former DA Faces Prison after Sex Crime Plea

It is extremely easy to demonize criminal defense attorneys; indeed, it's even popular to do so. Watch any television legal drama. Most of them, with one or two notable exceptions, focus on the District Attorney and the police, painting them as heroes while the defense lawyers are almost universally portrayed as sleazy, profit-obsessed, and even corrupt. This portrayal couldn't be further from the truth, and is insulting to honest Colorado crimin... Read More

Medical Evidence is Critical to Colorado Assault Cases

Assault is not a victimless crime and, as such, can have many more variables that need considering before an accurate verdict can be rendered in any case.  Assault cases involve a victim who has suffered bodily injury and the medical evidence that can prove or disprove that claim of injury is critical in an assault case.

This severe change in the apparent effectiveness of juvenile corrections has led to the state making the decision to close two of its juvenile facilities. While the state is citing better efforts to identify substance abuse and familial issues early, Colorado criminal defense attorneys point out that a p... Read More

Man in Prison for Seventeen Years Sees Conviction Overturned

On September 30, a judge overturned the conviction of a man arrested for murder in 1994. Obie Anthony is tasting freedom for the first time in nearly two decades after information came to light that one of the key witnesses for the prosecution lied under oath, his testimony helping to damn Anthony to prison. Worse, the judge chastised the prosecution for not revealing that they had in fact made a deal with the witness-a pimp-to testify against An... Read More
