The Denver Post is reporting that three Colorado Springs teenagers are being held in connection with the aggravated robbery of a 35 year-old woman. The incident occurred on Saturday in Colorado Springs.
The teens, a 17 year-old boy, 14 year-old girl, and 12 year-old girl convinced the Good Samaritan to give them a ride to an apartment complex. When they arrived, the trio coaxed the woman out of the car. They then struck the Good Samaritan in the head with a hammer multiple times. She fell to the ground and the attack continued with kicks to her body. The trio fled in the victim’s vehicle.
The Good Samaritan quickly reported the incident. Police recovered the vehicle, arrested all three teens, and located a hammer within the boy’s possession.
The trio did not hire an attorney from 5280defense.com.
Under Colorado’s expressed consent law, you have the right to demand a blood test if you are suspected of driving drunk. You absolutely have the right to refuse to provide a sample of your breath or blood.
In certain limited situations, the police may obtain a sample of your blood without your consent and may even physically restrain you for these purposes:
If you are a suspect in a criminally negligent homicide, vehicular homicide, assault in the third degree or vehicular assault.
If the officer obtains a search warrant by articulating probable cause to a judge. This is treated exactly like a search warrant for a home, except that now the enclosed space to be searched is your body.
The Denver Post is reporting that 23-year-old Richard Kenneth Foster is being held in connection with a weekend assault. A Boulder police spokesperson confirmed that Foster, a transient, became enraged and yelled and screamed at a local family. He then struck the mother with a glass bottle while she was holding her 1-year-old son. When confronted by police, Foster became very combative and even spit at the arresting officers. Foster did not hire an attorney from 5280defense.com.

Facing this type of crime prevents you from qualifying for deferred prosecution, and requires enrollment and attendance in specific treatments. Even if you are granted probation or deferred sentencing, you will not be allowed to live in your own home if your accuser still resides there.
The law does not care who holds the keys to the house, only that the accuser is safe. This law fails to take into account whether the accusation is true. Obviously, the results can wreak havoc on your life.
The judge can make you move out of your own house while the case is pending, even if you are innocent of all charges! Even if you receive probation or deferred sentencing, you will not be able to move home if the accuser is still there. It is very important that you contact our office today so we can begin fighting for your rights.
The domestic violence law in Colorado is broad. It includes a crime against the person, property, or even animals belonging to your accuser. This extends to situations where you’re accused of doing things to coerce, control, punish, intimidate or seek revenge against your accuser.
The law is quick to act, and takes a “shoot first, ask questions later” approach to separating individuals believed to be in a domestic violence situation. The police and prosecutors are quickly building a case based upon the information they received from the accuser. This means that you must act quickly to make the truth known to the authorities. Do not do this alone!
Approximately 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner annually in the United States. Law enforcement officials have responded to this in creating very strict laws for domestic violence. Often times, the police are in such a hurry to separate the parties and figure out what happened that there is a rush to judgment…and it’s done at your expense.
