Does domestic violence increase during the holidays?

The holidays are a stressful time for many people. The five-plus week period between Thanksgiving and New Years' is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year. But for many families - especially those in which domestic violence or abuse has been alleged -- this isn't the case.

Parole Eligibility Date Calculation

Parole is defined as "the provisional release of a prisoner who agrees to certain conditions prior to the completion of the maximum sentence period". In Colorado, "Parole is a condition of release from prison, made by an independent seven-member board appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Colorado Senate" (doc.state.co.us). Calculating parole differs when you are convicted of a violent crime. 

Why Did I Get Charged With a Crime?

Often we have clients confused how they are charged with a crime when they were not actively involved with the crime itself.  The answer, they are charged under the theory of complicity.  Colorado has enacted the statute of complicity stating, "A person is legally accountable as principal for the behavior of another constituting a criminal offense if, with the intent to promote or facilitate the commission of the offense, he or she aids, abets, advises, or encourages the other person in the planning or committing the offense." C.R.S 18-1-603
