    Mental health experts say the case of an 87-year-old Alzheimer's patient suspected of killing his roommate at an assisted living facility in suburban Denver is rare and shows the difficulty of caring for those with the unpredictable disease, even for the specially trained. Homer Castor, who faces charges in the beating death Saturday of Gerald Propp, 76, was known to be a challenge to staff at Atria Applewood in Lakewood because he would wander the facility at night.

I need to sign up for alcohol education level 2 classes for my second (and last) DUI. I was about to sing up for at a place in Lakewood but then saw there are online classes available through different sources. I was ticketed in by lakewood and everything is in jefferson county. Can i sign up for an online class to: 1. save the embarassment of going to class 2. knock out the classes quicker (before court date to look good on my record) I dont know how credible or if the court syste will take these. any insights or thoughts would be helpful. Also, do you know price wise how these stack up againt going somewhere? the last thing i hate t do is sign up and do it online then not get credit for it and be out money. thanks!
Just check to make sure that the online classes are approved by the court and if they are go ahead and take tmem. Good luck!
Got stopped at a Dui checkpoint felt obligated to submit the sobriety test I found I didn't have to I should have known. I feel like having aspergers syndrome is what caused the investigation and got charged for a Dui for having marijuana in my system. I can't afford to hire an attorny, I dont know if i qualify for public deffender because i live with my parents my income is low enough but my households might make too much what should I do?
Go to your first court date and request a public defender. IF you don't qualify the judge will give you time to go...
I want to contest my case what is the best thing to do?
If you cannot afford a private attorney, make your first court appearance and request court-appointed counsel.
I was arrested for a DUI after passing out in my car with the keys in the ignition. I blew a .198. The officer said he almost let me go. I was also possibly presumably drugged at the concert I had attended that night. I was taken to detox and blew a .138 only 2 and a half hours after the initial test
I doubt there's a single lawyer who recommends a do-it-yourself on a DUI.
I just got my first ever drinking and driving charge. I was originally charged with a DUI and my arresting officer took my license immediately. I went to court and got the charges lowered to a DWAI which is only 8pts compared to the 30 something I originally was getting. I have asked this question and keep getting different answers. Is my license still automatically revoked or can I get it back? Is there anything else I should know?
There are a lot of variables to be considered in determining the impact on your license. First, your age may make a...
I was sentenced to two years probation after a DUI in which I refused the breathalyzer. This was my first offense and my record is clean other than the DUI. I have completed 12 months of probation (without a single failed ua) and completed all other conditions of probation. I have a good relationship with my po; he has lowered my ua's to 1 per month and I only have to meet with him once every two months. If I file for early termination, what are the chances the judge will grant my request?
Very unlikely. However, you can talk with a local attorney and explore that option. There will be no chance at early...
I called in the morning and had planned to go in the evening but when I got home my husband told me he had been laid off and I completely forgot until today. I plan to call PO and explain. I missed another one a few months ago that he gave me a warning for. Otherwise I have been perfect on probation and got all my classes and community service done very promptly. What do you think will happen? I am very worried because I only have 6weeks left on my probation.
every probation officer is different. They might cut you some slack. However, this is a technical violation of your...
