Juvenile Law

What is Juvenile Crime?

Most people associate juvenile crimes with harmless pranks and child's play. Unfortunately, juvenile crime is being prosecuted more vigorously than ever, and all too often, minor children face a lifetime's worth of penalties when they are tried as adults or kept within the criminal system throughout adulthood.

How a juvenile crime is prosecuted will depend on the severity of the crime in question, the circumstances surrounding the crime, and the age of the defendant. Over 60 percent of the victims of juvenile crime are other juveniles.

The juvenile justice system in your area may be equipped to care for juvenile offenders, but all too often, the system is the first stop on a long road to prison and lifelong problems with the law. Furthermore, a juvenile adjudication may preclude future employment or education opportunities for a juvenile.

Early Intervention for Juvenile Crime

With proper criminal defense, a juvenile accused of a minor or severe crime can get charges reduced or even dropped and make sure the adult criminal record does not reflect the mistakes of youth.

However, this process can be long and demanding and requires a Colorado juvenile criminal defense attorney who is in tune with current issues and the specific rules of the juvenile justice system and knows what it takes to address prosecutors and other officials on behalf of their clients.

Early intervention is a necessity for the proper defense of juvenile crime in Colorado Springs. Even if your child is only being investigated for such a crime, it is crucial that you protect your rights and the rights of your child by retaining an experienced attorney as soon as possible.

The Role of Juvenile Justice Attorney

The ideal juvenile justice attorney understands the system, has a track record of success, and has the resources it takes to fight for your rights.

In an attempt to deter juvenile crime, law enforcement officials seem to raise the stakes for juvenile offenders year after year. The best defense is not committing the crime at all, but whether your child is innocent or guilty, he or she deserves fair treatment by the juvenile justice system and the best criminal defense available.

Colorado criminal defense attorney John Newsome understands the stakes and the juvenile justice system.

DUI Defense

Colorado has stringent laws regarding DUIs and drunk driving. Penalties that are proposed include jail time, supervised probation, and community service. If you have been charged with DUI, DWAI, or DUID, you need to hire an experienced DUI attorney immediately.

The DUI laws also include a driver’s license suspension and the installation of ignition interlocks.

An experienced DUI attorney will help you negotiate these complex laws with representation both at the courthouse and the department of motor vehicles. John Newsome has been litigating DUI cases as a prosecutor and defense attorney for 25 years.

Domestic Violence & Restraining Orders

Have you been arrested or falsely charged with domestic violence?
If you have, you are not alone.

The State of Domestic Violence & Restraining Orders

Colorado has mandatory arrests for domestic violence allegations, and Colorado Springs has a very active law enforcement presence, all of which have mandatory arrest policies.

Domestic violence charges, along with restraining orders, carry severe collateral consequences. These consequences will negatively impact your Second Amendment rights, your ability to pass a background check for housing and employment, and the placement of your name on a national registry.

It is imperative that you hire an experienced domestic violence attorney immediately.

DMV Points and Driver's License

You may be unaware of the consequences of traffic tickets and drunk driving when charged with a DUI/DWAI.

DUI Consequences - DMV Points

When you are cited for a traffic violation, points are charged against your license. The Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) monitors the number of points issued against your license for each violation.

Too many points reported against your license can mean long-term license revocation and increased insurance premiums. We have given some frequently charged offenses.

  • Hit and run
  • Speed contests
  • DUI (Driving under the influence)
  • Driving under license suspension/revocation
