However, when you have a criminal law attorney on your side, you can walk into your hearing feeling confident that you have someone fighting for you.
DUI & DUID
When you have a DUI or a DUID charge for driving under the influence, you are not only looking at criminal penalties but also civil administrative penalties. If you are convicted of these crimes, this will result in a permanent criminal record which will result in your entire life being unearthed. A conviction for this sort of crime can bleed into your work life, family life and more. Additionally, this type of conviction will also come with a long probation period or even a jail sentence. Let’s break down the terms:
DUI – Driving under the influence of alcohol
DUID – Driving under the influence of drugs
DWAI – Driving while ability impaired
You could also be looking at a driver’s license suspension or revocations that could last up to a year if you are convicted of these charges. This will have an especially negative effect on those who live in Northern Colorado, as public transportation is not like to meet your needs or the needs of your family. The Law Office of Loomis and Greene can help to fight a license revocation or suspension when you hire us to represent you. Don’t lose your freedom. Instead, hire our legal team today.
Assault & Domestic Violence
Cases of assault and domestic violence can be tricky. Because these allegations often arise after events in your own home, it is likely that there will be no witnesses who are able to testify in court. The sooner you can tell your side of the story to a criminal law attorney, the better your chances are of the consequences being minimized, and you escaping arrest or charges in general.
Very often, allegations of domestic violence occur after a domestic dispute has occurred. If the police are called, there is often the assumption that someone has been physically assaulted. Additionally, when police arrive, it is rare that they even attempt to determine what has happened or who is at fault. This does not mean they will not be arrested, however. Much of the time, you will be.
This is why you need an attorney who can defend you. A domestic violence or assault allegation can lead to consequences that will affect you for the rest of your life. It can lend to issues regarding your future employment, housing, and the opportunities that are available to you in regards to recreational activities. If you are convicted, you can even lose your rights to own or use weapons. If you want to ensure that you don’t have to deal with these consequences, we suggest you contact our law office today.
When you take something a value from another person with the intent to permanently deprive them of it, this is known by the courts as ‘theft.’ If you have been accused of a crime involving theft, the District Attorney must be able to prove that you were never going to give the person their belonging or their money back. While theft can be a misdemeanor or a felony in the State of Colorado, the class of criminal offense is determined by the value:
- Under $500 is a Class 2 Misdemeanor
- $500 to $999.99 is a Class 1 Misdemeanor (M 1)
- $1,000 to $19,999.99 is a Class 4 Felony (F4)
- $20,000 or more is a Class 3 Felony (F3)
- Theft from the person using force, threats, or intimidation is a Class 3 Felony(F3)
