About Austin Lux
Two areas in which people frequently need help are with drug crimes and DUIs. Colorado’s drug laws have changed quite a bit in recent years but that doesn’t mean that being charged with a drug crime will be easier for you. A conviction for a drug crime can still land you in prison, slap you with a serious fine, and be added to a criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life. Similarly, if you are caught while driving under the influence (DUI) then you could be looking at some serious consequences such as losing your license. For many, losing their license will also mean losing their job because they either use their vehicle for work or they require it to get them there in the first place. Thankfully, a well thought out defense can make all the difference in the world and help to prevent these unfortunate consequences from coming to pass.
Another charge that has terrible consequences is that of domestic violence. Domestic violence itself is a horrible action and it makes sense that the law has strong checks and balances in place in order to help support victims of domestic violence. Unfortunately, those same checks and balances that support victims can be incredibly detrimental to those who are wrongfully accused of domestic violence. Some individuals accuse their partners of domestic violence as a way of hurting them. Later, after they have calmed down and changed their minds, they don’t have the power to rescind the charges. Domestic violence charges are required by Colorado law to continue on to prosecution, even when the victim doesn’t desire this outcome. It is extremely important that you defend yourself against charges of this nature as they can result in prison time, fines, or a continued struggle with finding employment and housing. The implications of a domestic violence charge are far-ranging and they should never be taken lightly.
