Attorney Kevin Flesch of Flesch & Beck Law explains the legal side of Domestic Violence. Kevin says that Domestic violence in Colorado is not treated as an independent crime. Rather, Domestic Violence is a sentencing enhancement. It increases the punishment for any offense against current or former spouses or dating partners. Colorado is a mandatory arrest state, which means police must arrest anyone they have probable cause to believe committed domestic violence. It does not matter if the alleged victims recant or wish not to press charges. And while Domestic Violence charges are pending, defendants will have a protection order taken out against them.
There are many aspects to this area of law. It always a free consultation at Flesch & Beck Law. Call Kevin today at 303-806-8886 or visit the website at www.fleschlawfirm.com.
