Students learn of the dangers of DUI

Every single day, students across Colorado drive to school. In addition to driving to school, they often drive to after-school events and activities that many teenagers participate in. For the most part, these teenage drivers adhere to traffic laws and do what they are supposed to do. However, at times, they do become distracted by what their friends are doing and sometimes do not realize the consequences that go along with drinking and driving that can lead to charges of DUI.

New Colorado bill takes aim at DUI/DUID/DWAI repeat offenders

Mothers Against Drunk Driving have teamed up with the Colorado legislature in an effort to stop repeat drunk driving offenders. It is often believed that once someone has been stopped for possible DUI/DUID/DWAI that the driver would be too scared to do anything that could lead officers to once again believe that he or she was driving impaired. Unfortunately, there are times when one makes the same mistake more than once.

Making Summer Work with Split Custody

Having split custody of your child is a difficult situation to be in. There are all sorts of reasons why having a split custody set-up is beneficial and worthwhile, why it makes sense for parents from all different walks of life. Having both parents involved in a child's life is ideal, and it takes a very special family and a lot of commitment on the part of both parents to work out the complex scheduling of a split custody arrangement. Everything down to what school a child attends to what sport leagues they participate in and what friends they get to spend time with after school really depends on where the child lives, and so developing a split custody arrangement in a way that benefits the child takes a lot of cooperation and sacrifice on the part of both parents.

One error in judgment is all it takes. Many times, an individual is not the best judge of whether he or she should be driving.

If such action leads to the death of another within Colorado, it is possible that the driver will be charged with vehicular homicide.

When Your Spouse Stops Paying Child Support

Raising a child after divorce is difficult and expensive. Fortunately, Colorado law compels both parents to provide financial support for their children when the marriage is terminated. Sadly however, some parents begin to shirk this financial responsibility, either right away or over time. When this happens, there are steps you can take to pursue the support your child needs and deserves.

Poor decisions lead to charges of vehicular assault or homicide?

Once a life has been taken, nothing can be done to bring that individual back. At this point, the Colorado family is left to grieve, find closure and begin the recovery process. For the individual accused of taking the life, however, in addition to dealing with the shock and emotional issues, there are often many legal concerns that come into play. When such an incident involves a car accident, charges of vehicular assault or homicide may be filed.

Sentencing can be harsh in vehicular assault or homicide cases

When a Colorado resident is accused of a serious criminal charge, the need to seek immediate and aggressive legal defense services cannot be overstated. If a conviction is obtained on vehicular assault or homicide cases, sentencing can be devastating. An example is found in a recent case in which a man was sentenced for his role in the death of his 6-year-old niece.
