Denver Protection Order Violations Attorney
If you have been charged with violation of a protection order in Denver, you need a criminal defense attorney who has successfully defended clients against this type of charge. The allegation may be as minor as having consumed alcohol when prohibited to directly contacting the alleged victim. Either way, you are facing up to 18 months in jail consecutive to the original charge and up to a $5,000.00 fine.
Often, an alleged victim fabricates a protection order violation in order to have someone arrested. The police are required to arrest you if such an allegation is made. Judges are likely to impose a high bond to keep you in jail. You need a top Denver Protection Order attorney to fight these allegations and get you out of jail. I will get a private investigator immediately involved as it is often very effective in fighting these baseless allegations. A top Denver criminal defense lawyer can persuade a district attorney to dismiss the case if you have an alibi or if we can show the complainant has a motive to lie.
If you are accused of drinking alcohol in violation of a protection order, contact me immediately as we can obtain a urinalysis to prove to the district attorney you were not consuming alcohol.
This is not the type of crime where you should enlist the help from your former divorce attorney. You need representation from a criminal defense lawyer with over 20 years of experience specializing in criminal law.
