Man charged with property crimes after comic book theft

When people in Boulder and throughout Colorado are arrested for crimes related to theft, there are certain items that are commonly taken. That can include automobiles, jewelry and money. Items that have both nostalgic and financial value are also a frequent target to be stolen. If the property is of significant value, the charges can be severe, with extended jail time and other consequences. Having legal advice is imperative to create a strong defense.

A 39-year-old former employee of a comic book store was arrested on allegations that he stole comics of immense value. According to the investigation, the man is said to have broken into the store. He smashed the cases where rare books, such as early Spider-Man, Avengers and Iron Man were kept. The Spider-Man had been autographed. Investigators said the man cut himself at the time and left blood in several places at the scene. Tips were sent to law enforcement as to who was believed to have committed the robbery. He faces class 4 felonies for theft and second-degree burglary.

DUI arrest rates are high on summer holidays

Summer can be a bittersweet season for many college students in more ways than one. For some, it may be some of their last months off before they get back to studying and eventually adulthood. For those who have summer jobs and internships, they are getting a taste of things to come. Regardless of what category you fall under, you at least still get to take advantage of national holidays where you, your family and your friends can take some much-needed time off.

The Fourth of July and Labor Day are some of the most celebrated holidays in the nation. However, that also makes them some of the most dangerous for drivers on the road. In 2017, there were 394 drivers in Colorado arrested for suspected DUI. The police are on high alert, so even the slightest mistake while driving can raise suspicions for them. Here are some factors you need to consider before making party plans around these holidays:

Memorial Day DUI/DWAI arrests in Colorado surpass 300

On holidays in Colorado and across the U.S., law enforcement steps up its efforts to catch drivers who might be under the influence. That endeavor includes an increased law enforcement presence on the roads, checkpoints and other strategies designed specifically to catch drunk drivers.

Although these steps are understandable and are done with the safety of the community in mind, that does not automatically mean that everyone who is stopped and charged is guilty. Those who are facing these charges should remember their right to a legal defense.

Separation agreements in Colorado

When a couple in Colorado is experiencing marital difficulties, they might not be sure they want to divorce immediately; they might prefer to negotiate a separation rather than have the case decided by a court. In many cases, the couple can benefit from spending some time apart and the marriage is salvageable. Or, maybe the couple is on amicable terms and can agree on the fundamental issues as they dissolve the marriage. For people in this situation, it is important to understand how a separation agreement can be used.

As a separation or dissolution moves forward, the parties can come up with a written separation agreement. In the agreement will be stipulations regarding maintenance, how the property will be split, and how children will be handled with child support, parenting time and parental responsibilities. The separation agreement will be binding except for issues related to children. If, however, the court finds that the economic situation makes the agreement unfair, it will not necessarily be binding.

Report: Theft in Colorado has risen since 2014

There are few things that make you feel more insecure in this world than someone stealing property from you. You work hard for the right to own your personal property and do your best to safeguard it from thieves. While some property is replaceable, sentimental items like family heirlooms are difficult if not impossible to replace.

Sadly, a report from the Boulder Police Department shows that reports of non-vehicle theft have risen each year since 2014. Reports of theft increased by over 400 claims from 2017 to 2018 to put the number of reported thefts over 3,000.

Man faces reckless and careless driving after high-speed chase

Driving at excessive speed and operating a vehicle in a reckless manager in Colorado is inherently dangerous. To put a stop to drivers behaving in this way, law enforcement is out in force to catch them and give citations for their behavior. In some cases, the allegations are sufficiently egregious that there is an arrest. Although people should not drive recklessly and dangerously, that does not mean they should go to jail, lose their driving privileges and face other penalties for it. Having a legal defense to combat the charges is a person's right and it is important to exercise that right to avoid the worst consequences.

A man was arrested on numerous charges related to speeding and reckless driving. The 31-year-old was seen by witnesses who contacted law enforcement at around 8:15 p.m. The vehicle, a Dodge Challenger, was reportedly driving at significant speeds and changing lanes recklessly. A state trooper saw the vehicle and attempted a traffic stop. However, the driver allegedly sped off and reached speeds of 130-mph while running onto the shoulder of the road.

Man faces DUI/DWAI charges after hitting police vehicle

Since drivers who are driving under the influence or driving while ability impaired can cause so much damage in Boulder and across Colorado, law enforcement is vigilant in finding these drivers, stopping them and placing them under arrest. In some cases, the arrest comes after a traffic stop or an accident. In more unusual cases, the alleged DUI/DWAI driver will essentially go directly to the police in unexpected ways. Regardless of how the arrest was made and its circumstances, people should know that they will face harsh penalties for a conviction. Having legal advice to defend against these charges is imperative and can avoid the worst consequences.

A man was arrested for DUI after hitting a patrol vehicle of a state trooper. The accident occurred in the early-morning hours at around 1 a.m. The trooper had stopped to assist a person whose vehicle was disabled. While sitting in the vehicle, it was hit. The trooper was taken for treatment at the hospital. The injuries are not believed to be serious. The driver of the vehicle that hit the cruiser, a 50-year-old man, was placed under arrest for multiple charges including DUI, careless operation, failing to yield to a law enforcement vehicle and more.

Colorado property division, family law and divorce

In a Colorado divorce, the focus will understandably be on children, their support and custodial issues. Spousal maintenance will also come to the forefront. There are many avenues of dispute in any case involving family law and divorce. Property division might get lost in the shuffle, but that does not diminish the importance of understanding the law and how it is determined what will be divided as marital property and what will be separate property. Having legal assistance is critical with these circumstances.

When determining how marital property will be divided, the court will consider how much each party contributed to its acquisition. That will factor in the contribution of a person who was functioning as a homemaker. The property will have value and this will be set apart to each party. When the division of property goes into effect, the circumstances of the spouses will be considered. That will include how desirable it is for one or the other to maintain the family home and to live there for a reasonable amount of time with children. If there were increases or reductions with the value of separate property that a spouse brought into the marriage, this will be assessed.

Men arrested on property crimes for bicycle thefts

Colorado property crimes and a conviction for them can lead to significant penalties and extensive problems. These can be linked to the theft of large items and smaller items. Those who are accused might not realize the possibility of jail time, fines and how a conviction can impact their lives even after they have completed a sentence. Numerous problems can arise from any criminal conviction and it is important to understand how legal advice can be integral to a defense.

Two men were arrested for allegedly stealing bicycles on the campus of Colorado University. These incidents occurred both on and close to the campus. A person saw something happening at the bike racks near a residence. Law enforcement was called and one man was arrested because of theft and for possessing burglary tools. Several days later, a bicycle that was used for bait was found to be moving. It had a chip to track its whereabouts. A man was found with the bicycle and arrested. He too faces charges for theft and possessing burglary tools. He also had drugs and was found to have three outstanding warrants.
