Police followed a car last week and arrested the two people inside, who were later charged with burglary. Authorities say that the arrests were the result of an extensive investigation. This investigation reportedly led the police to arrest the two as they were pulling their car into a neighborhood, which police accuse the two of being the next area they would steal from, although it is unclear why police thought this.
These accusations are extremely serious and people who are arrested for burglary or similar crimes in the Denver area might be wise to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney. An attorney can help a person understand their rights. One of a person’s rights is not to incriminate themselves. Speaking with an attorney before answering questions from authorities might be able to help prevent a person from disclosing information that might later be used against them in court.
When someone faces charges such as these in Denver, they might face difficulty finding future employment. Even if the person isn’t convicted, a person might have their name printed in the news, making it important that an attorney works to defend their reputation and clear them of charges.
Sometimes police will collaborate with other departments, and in this case it was reported that Denver and Wheat Ridge detectives worked together. This might result in some evidence being mishandled or a miscommunication between two departments, which results in a person’s rights being violated. Any violation of a person’s rights could lead to their wrongful conviction and unnecessary prison time.
