One of the most difficult on a personal and legal level is when a person is accused of harassment. In today's climate, there is greater sensitivity to any misstep another person might make. When the police are called and there is an arrest, the allegations can be as problematic as they are embarrassing. Seeking legal assistance is an important factor in pursuing an acceptable resolution when charged with harassment.

Why your mental health means everything

Difficult times in life arise, there is no doubt about that. It may feel worse when working through legal issues and still expected to manage your workload and personal life responsibilities. When life takes a downward turn, your mental health is tested. Emotional pain, stress, worry, depression and anxiety can trap you into an unhealthy state-of-mind.

Taking care of your mental health may not be something you consciously make time for, but its value is priceless. When you come down with the flu, the tendency is to greatly cherish your health and no longer take it for granted. The same is true for your mental and emotional wellbeing.

Football player receives plea deal

Colorado residents may have heard about the guilty plea entered by Oakland Raiders cornerback Daryl Worley. He pleaded guilty on June 18 to three charges including driving while under the influence of alcohol and having firearms in his vehicle. The DUI conviction led to a 72-hour jail sentence while the other charges resulted in two years of probation. However, the defensive back was credited with time served as it related to his jail sentence.

The charges stem from an incident on April 15 when the player was found unresponsive in a vehicle that was blocking traffic near the Philadelphia Eagles practice facility. Worley was a member of the team at the time, but was let go by the team after the incident. He may face further discipline from the NFL under its personal conduct policy. He told reporters that he was grateful for the opportunity to play for Oakland.

Making co-parenting successful

After a divorce, Colorado parents will be faced with the very important task of raising their kids in separate households. No matter the situations that caused the divorce, or the feelings that might still linger afterward, parents should work together to raise their children. Although challenging, co-parenting after a divorce can be done successfully.

To begin with, both parents should remember that their co-parenting efforts center around the best interests of their children. As such, the goal should be to provide a warm, secure, stable life with the children. One way to do this is by following the same rules in both homes. These rules can be general regarding behavior and other limits, but do not have to be so specific that they create further issues between the parents. Ex-spouses should also be honest with their children if they ask why the marriage ended. While they should not encourage any hope of reunion if there is none, they should also be careful of passing on bitter feelings that remain after the divorce.

Colorado developer continues a six-year battle against charges

White collar crime allegations can be devastating to more than just your freedom. Not only can someone end up with expensive fines and a prison sentence, consequences can radiate into all areas of your life. Allegations can damage your reputation in an industry, permanently affecting your career. Some criminal cases can drag on for years, even after being dismissed in court.

A prominent Colorado developer is currently facing this dilemma after having charges against him dismissed and then overturned twice over the course of six years. Ray Marshall is accused of stealing $1 million from a deal regarding the U.S. Olympic Committee headquarters location in Colorado Springs. He is facing 41 counts of racketeering and theft.

The dangers of self-medicating with illegal substances

Mental illness has no easy solution. There is no one answer that works for everyone. Some people who suffer mental health problems need therapy, medication or a combination of both to feel better.

Teens and young adults who do not get help may self-medicate with drugs and alcohol.

On July 22, a Colorado man was cited for drunk driving after he allegedly caused a car accident on Black Bear Pass, a mountain road that connects Silverton and Telluride. The road is narrow with steep drop-offs, making accidents extremely dangerous.

The 28-year-old man was allegedly driving recklessly when he went over a hill and collided with a Jeep Wrangler that was parked at the side of the road. There were four passengers sitting inside at the time of the accident. The man ended up rear-ending the Jeep before continuing to drive off the road for another 40 yards. He then hit some boulders, causing the airbags in his vehicle to deploy. The accident did not cause the Jeep to go off the road.
