In some sex crime cases and other criminal cases in Denver, Adams County and across Colorado, women and children make false accusations against husbands, fathers, significant others, mentors or family friends. Sometimes, children make false allegations to get a male figure out of their life, or they want to be moved to a different residence where they'll have more freedom. They don't think about the consequences involved with a false allegation. On the other hand, stepchildren, ex-girlfriends or spouses make false accusations to get revenge on a male figure or because they got caught up in the heat of an argument. Unfortunately, these accusations can lead to an issuance of an Emergency Protection Order in Colorado, which can affect many areas of your life. If you are facing charges of a sexual offense or another criminal offense and have been issued an Emergency Protection Order or Restraining Order in Colorado, call the best criminal defense lawyers at the O'Malley Law Office right away.
Douglas and Arapahoe County Emergency Protection Order Lawyer: Emergency Protection Orders and Restraining Orders in Colorado
Emergency Protection Orders, C.R.S. 13-14-103, are issued in Douglas and Arapahoe County, under any county or district court's authority. Judges often treat an alleged victim in a sex crime case or other criminal case with more favor because they are afraid of losing their job and want to please the general public. This means that in many criminal cases, even when there are false accusations, judges will be inclined to issue an Emergency Protection Order or Restraining Order. In Colorado, Emergency Restraining and Protection Orders are issued to:
- Restrain a party from contacting, harassing, injuring, intimidating, threatening, molesting, touching, stalking, sexually assaulting or abusing any other party, a minor child of either of the parties, or a minor child who is in danger in the reasonably foreseeable future of being a victim of an unlawful sexual offense or domestic abuse;
