How do drug offense penalties vary in Aurora, and what factors influence severity?

The penalties for drug offenses committed in Aurora can vary quite significantly, ranging anywhere from small fines and community service to an extended prison sentence. If your drug crime is classed as a felony, there are certain factors that require sentencing in Colorado’s aggravated range. These include the following:

  • You were under parole for a separate felony at the time of conviction.
  • You were in confinement, incarcerated, or in any correctional institution as a previously convicted felon, or you were an escapee from any correctional institution for another felony when the drug offense occurred.
  • You were on appeal bond after being convicted of a different felony.
  • Any other factors that the court considers appropriate.

More generally, penalty severity for drug offenses depend on factors such as the type and quantity of drugs in question, prior offenses, and proximity to schools or parks. Our team of criminal attorneys can provide tailored advice based on your circumstances – call us today to get started.

What is the duration of domestic violence protection orders in Aurora, and can they be modified?

There are three different types of protection orders in Aurora, Colorado: temporary, mandatory, and permanent.
  • Temporary protection orders are automatically issued at the time of arrest. As the name suggests, these protection orders are short-lived, lasting only until a court hearing is held.
  • Mandatory protection orders are issued at the first court appearance and last as long as the case remains active.
  • Permanent protection orders are issued at the end of a case and prohibit different types of contact between the restrained person and the victim. The specifics of a given PPO vary on a case-by-case basis.
While the restrained individual can petition to get the permanent protection order lifted or removed, they can only do so after two years have passed.
Is negotiating a plea deal an option for a DUI charge in Aurora, and how does the process work?

Yes, negotiating a plea deal is an option for DUI cases in Colorado. Our Aurora DUI attorneys can assess your case, negotiate with prosecutors, and guide you through the process, exploring options for reduced charges or penalties.

The factors that most influence the success of a plea deal include the following:
  • Are there weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case? Here, we will look at the strength of the evidence and the credibility of any witnesses involved.
  • Have you put effort into treatment? How have you acted after the offense? If you have been actively taking steps to avoid a similar event happening in the future, this can reflect positively on your plea prospects.
Note that even if your attorney secures a plea deal for you, you are not obligated to take it. You always have the option to take your case to a jury trial if you wish to do so. We will stand by you no matter what you decide.
How does a conviction for theft or property crimes impact employment prospects in Aurora?

Unfortunately, having a criminal record can negatively impact your ability to secure gainful employment.
