There are many aspects of arrests and search and seizure proceedings that are subject to challenge, and in many cases any irregularities documented could be enough to get a criminal case dismissed. A Colorado woman was recently arrested on drug charges at her Grand Junction home. Her legal counsel will likely scrutinize every step taken by the deputies who arrested her and later searched her house.
The Boulder County Drug Task Force recently arrested a man who has no prior felony convictions recorded in Colorado. The Superior resident faces various drug charges that followed an investigation that involved several controlled drug purchases starting in January. The arrest affidavit indicates that the purchaser who carried out the controlled buys reported that the 50-year-old man carried a briefcase containing various drugs that he allegedly obtained on the dark web, using cryptocurrency as payment.
A Colorado Springs woman who allegedly operates a day care facility that is not registered was arrested on a recent Friday evening. Along with drug charges, she now faces multiple other charges. According to a police report, her arrest followed a standoff that lasted approximately one hour.
Anyone in Colorado who faces criminal charges is presumed innocent unless and until the prosecution can prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. For that reason, obtaining the best possible legal counsel who can challenge the formal allegations on which the prosecution's case is based is essential. An attorney can also safeguard the constitutional rights of a defendant facing drug charges.
A drug syndicate in Colorado is accused of using cryptocurrencies to evade taxes in its drug deals. That is but one of the drug charges that were filed against a Longmont man who is the alleged ringleader. He, along with five others, was recently arrested in Weld County and charged with several felonies.
The drug task force of Weld County has been investigating a ring of marijuana smugglers for some time and reported more arrests. Some of those arrested already got court dates for drug charges, while others are waiting to be charged. Colorado authorities say the latest four arrests took place on a recent Wednesday evening.
Anybody who faces criminal charges in Colorado will likely be exploring their defense options. Any drug charges are typically regarded as serious, and prosecutors are usually determined to get convictions. A mother in Denver is facing multiple charges after her recent arrest.
Facing any criminal charges is a serious matter. When it is drug charges, and there are previous arrests on record, the consequences can be severe if not handled by experienced legal counsel. A 37-year-old Colorado man who was recently arrested may have to face habitual criminal charges.
Although recreational and medical marijuana use in Colorado has been legalized for several years, there are rules and regulations with which users and dealers must comply -- even if they are licensed. Authorities and law enforcement keep a close watch on retailers and cultivators. Any indications of irregularities may lead to drug charges and license suspensions.
When Colorado residents are accused of distributing drugs, they may not immediately comprehend the gravity of the situation. Convictions on drug charges can have severe repercussions. However, many charges follow mere suspicions, and any person who faces drug charges will be innocent in the eyes of the law unless and until his or her guilt is proved beyond a reasonable doubt. Such may be the situation for a woman who was recently arrested in Sheridan County, and she now faces five drug-related charges.
