  • Suspect's confession is center of missing boy case

    Saturday Sep 27 | via Cybercast News Service 

    While a judge weighs whether a murder confession in one of the nation's most notorious missing child cases can be used at the suspect's trial, a larger question is looming: Was it all made up? Pedro Hernandez is seen in hours of videotaped statements telling the same unnerving story: How he was a teenage stock boy at a Manhattan convenience store in 1979 when Etan Patz went missing. How he spotted the 6-year-old boy walking to his school bus stop.

  • William Corn: We must stop ISIS

    Friday Sep 26 | via Daily Camera 

    Twelve or more countries have nuclear weapons; Iran, North Korea are the smallest and we call them "emotional" countries, because they wildly try to intimidate all the peoples of the free world with Iran the leader of the shouting. America and Russia were not called "emotional" countries when they had the issue of Russia arming Cuba; instead of "calmness" turning into panic, the U.S. and Russia both used logic and wisdom to avoid nuclear war which would have killed our planet and all of its population.

Boulder Law

My biggest thing is...I committed my offense in Nov 2007 and didn't drive until able to afford, finally, Dec 2013 to get my license reinstated and the interlock installed. They extended because they're treating it as a new case, a case under new law 1/14 for "early reinstatement". Why wouldn't my rules fall under those of 2007 or 2008? Over six years later certainly is not "early". I do not know what caused the fails but I was told not to try again any time soon if I failed, so I got rides and didn't start the car again until the next day which is what seems to have been the decision maker. So, in a murder trial I would have to be proven guilty but it's assumed I had been drinking for these fails...why wouldn't my readings have been higher. I have stopped using mouthwash, hairspray.
There are ways to fight the DMV challenges to your Interlock fails. You need to contact a good DUI attorney who is...
_ Subj had a couple beers at Bowling Alley. 2-3 hrs later, he drove home. [ On narrow, one-way road, he was menaced by car squeezing past on right. To avoid collision, Subj pulled SUV leftward off road, across RR tracks. Storm-drenched, he misjudged clearance, getting wheel stuck along track. Laying rocks in would-be wheel path, he attempted to ramp out SUV's wheel. ] Physically an invalid (as marked on licenses) & in pain, Subj appears rocky & strange. Nearby police approach & by appearance arrest him as DUI. Instead of Breathalyzer BAC Test, he requested more accurate Blood Test, at Station or nearby Longmont hospitals. Request was declared Delay Tactic - a Refusal. Also, Forceful arrest inflamed pains, inducing unintended reflex motions:-- declared Resisting Arrest. ? APPEAL WORTHY ?

I was pulled over for expired tags in 2012 after making the terrible decision to get behind the wheel after drinking. I had no prior arrests or misdemeanors. I opted for the blood test and came back with a very high BAC of .246. I plead guilty to DWAI in April 2013 and received 30 days EHM, community service, alc classes, monitored sobriety and fines. I have now completed all that the court required of me except for the remaining time on probation. I have been totally clean since and have passed every UA. Is it possible (or likely) to have my probation terminated early? Not sure if I can get off early because I took a plea bargain from the DA in order to avoid jail time. Answers are very appreciated. Thanks
Probably not. Two years probation is the norm for that high of a BAC. Additionally, the plea agreement likely called...
Jefferson Cnty. CO. Charged with DWAI (4th in lifetime), plea bargain for inmate/outmate w/ 1 yr. susp. jail. 2 yrs. probation, fines, etc... Did 90 days WR, and lasted about 2 mos. in ISP via. Intervention in golden. Caught charge in Bldr. Cnty. for Driving Under revocation. Had an emotional breakdown. Did not complete probation. 5 mos. later, I come home to turn myself in. Now am facing a "3rd degree escape charge from misdemeanor" and the original charge of DWAI. Id prefer to do straight time at this point, but how little time can I do w/o probation. There are many small details in this matter which made this case incredibly hard for me to succeed...
