Facing a criminal charge in Colorado is never an easy circumstance, even if you have been charged with a crime in the past.

Police officers explain the simple truth of why you need a lawyer when they read you your rights: "Anything you say will be used against you in a court of law."

Criminal mischief charges often result in severe penalties
