The Cuff

A Journal of Arrest & Judicial Process Produced by The Local of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

A new Informational Publication for denver jails The Cuff is a newspaper-style publication that offers answers to frequently asked questions about the arrest and detention process. This publication is printed quarterly, and with the approval of participating jails, it is made available and distributed to inmates after they have been arrested. The Cuff is not intended as a substitute for legal advice. It has been researched and written by journalists in consultation with attorneys, bail bondsmen, and law enforcement personnel. It delivers opinions, suggestions, and guidance for arrestees while also emphasizing the importance of seeking professional legal counsel before any course of legal action is decided. People who are under arrest are often anxious and confused about the arrest process, especially if they are first time offenders. And detention officers are often so busy getting people processed that finding the time to answer individual questions can be difficult. The Cuff not only provides basic information, but it gives those waiting a way to pass the time, helping to maintain a calmer and more orderly booking area. Topics covered in The Cuff range from an overview of the booking and bonding process, pragmatic tips for court appearances, and information on specific regulations and requirements for DUI and Domestic Violence cases. The publication is aimed primarily at detainees, although it also offers information needed by friends and families who wish to help. Phone numbers, addresses and maps for important locations such as the jail, the courthouse and public defenders’ offices can be found both in the printed version and online at www.onlinejailservices.com. The Cuff also provides contact informa tion for local bail bondsmen and attorneys who can assist offenders throughout the judicial process. No more digging through unwieldy phone books with missing and/or marked up pages. A full directory of all Denver bail bondsman and attorneys is included for easy reference,

alongside information that may help the arrestee determine exactly what type of help they need. The mission of The Cuff is to help the Sheriff’s department improve communication with arrestees while helping the accused find information to navigate the legal system more effectively. It will be updated regularly as feedback is received, and as the publishers work to customize content specific to individual jails. Distribution of this publication benefits jails and detainees alike by providing easy–to-understand information about the arrest process and by facilitating a smoother processing of inmates.

In the United States Justice System if you are accused or charged with a crime, you have a right to be released from jail (under most circumstances) until such time as you are convicted of that crime at your trial.

The process is called booking and it creates your record of criminal activity.

When you were first brought into the jail, you were likely stripped of all weapons, contraband, and perhaps even your cell phone and other personal items. The jailers will then take down personal information and run a check in the system To get released from jail you will probably be to look for outstanding warrants and criminal required to post bail (give something of value) history. in the amount or type called for by law or set by a judge. The purpose of bail is to allow you to Then, you will be informed formally of the chargbe released from jail, yet provide the court with es against you and notified of your bail amount. some reasonable assurance that you will return In some cases, you will have to appear before a judge before bail can be set. At that point, you to court as required. can begin to consider how you wish to pay your bail so you can be released from the jail. What is Bail? Bail represents something of value (security) that is held by the court in the form of a bond until you return. Bail can be a specific amount of money and / or simply your “word” that you will act in a specific way, including returning to court when ordered to do so.

Once you are entered into the system, the jailers will collect your fingerprints and photograph. These will be added to your record and kept on file for future reference.

Depending on how busy the jail is, this process can take anywhere from an hour to most of a day. Just relax, cooperate with the jailers’ instructions, and they will get you through it as fast as possible. Remember: The jailers are there to help you get out of jail as quickly as possible.

Important information Appearing Before a Judge If you appear before the judge, you will have an opportunity to explain the circumstances of your arrest, and your ability to pay bail. The judge will fix the amount of your bail, and will also determine which kind of bond will be required for your release:

Professional Bail Bondsman How can they help you? A professional bail bondsman is a person who furnishes the monetary obligation (money part) of your bail bond to the court to secure your release. Most bondsman will accept credit cards.

Generally, defendants are evaluated by phase 1 pretrial staff within 24 hours of being arrested. In fact, phase 1 staff hours start early in the morning so that they can provide recommendations on those arrested the night before at the beginning of court operations. Defendants are always evaluated prior to their first courtroom appearance. At their first courtroom appearance, if a release is

If flight risk or protection orders are involved, the defendant will likely be required to wear a GPS device. Exclusion areas (ares where the defendant may not go) are set by the pretrial officers, and the officers are automatically notified 24/7 if the defendant enters these zones.

Not everyone may be happy about accused felons being released from jail, but the Denver pretrial release program’s ultimate goal is public safety. Defendants are very strictly supervised, and any violation of the supervisory terms will land them back in jail. The program also alleviates some of the problem of jail overcrowding, a problem jails in Denver and across the country have struggled recommended, the options are presented to the with for decades. defendant. A common misconception about pretrial release is that no money is involved. While it is true that most pretrial release bonds are Personal Recognizance (PR) bonds, the court may still order a cash bond, property bond or surety bond in cases where there may be flight risk.

Pre-Trial Court Appearance in a Criminal Case Here is the procedure used with some variations in Colorado in which a prosecutor files charges without a grand jury.

Misdemeanors The first step is an initial appearance (often referred to as an arraignment), before a judge of a lower court, at which: • The charge is read to the defendant and penalties are explained. • The defendant is advised of his/her right to trial, and right to trial by jury if desired.

Defendants determined by the court to be indigent can work off their fines by way of the County Court Work Program. This program functions in the same manner as community service, but allows defendants to work off their outstanding fines at a rate of $5 for every hour of work performed.

Medications

Taking Prescription Medicine in Jail

(Derived from an article published by the Legal Aid Society) Some people need to take prescription medications for serious medical conditions, such as diabetes, asthma, HIV, epilepsy or hypertension. If you are on a regular medication schedule, you may need to take your medication at certain times of the day. Other people, such as those with conditions such as asthma or angina, need to take medication at the onset of symptoms. No matter the nature or severity of your condition, you will be allowed your medication in jail. It will given to you as required by jailers or health care providers as you will not be allowed to keep your medication on you after you are arrested . However, if you anticipate that you will be arrested and want to take your medication while you are in custody, it is still a good idea to bring a one or two-day supply of your medication in its pharmacy-issued prescription bottle. The deputies who process your arrest will record the information from your prescription bottle, including the name of the medication and dosing information, and the name and telephone number for the pharmacy and your doctor. This information will accompany you through the arrest processing and will be provided

to any health care workers you encounter while in custody. If you do not have your prescription medication with you or it is not in a pharmacy-issued prescription bottle, but want the information about it to be available to the health care workers who will see you, you can ask a member of your household to bring it to the jail. The jailers may or may not accept the medication from the household member, but will record to the information on the prescription bottle on your intake information, along with contact information for the household member who came to the precinct. IT IS UP TO YOU to tell the jailers that you need medication. For people with asthma or other conditions that cause trouble breathing, the health care providers have oxygen supplies and over-the-counter inhalers available. While you are at the jail intake area you should ask to be seen by a health care worker if you feel sick. They will evaluate your condition, and if it appears that you need medication or treatment, procedures require that you be taken to a hospital emergency room, where a doctor will provide treatment and administer required medication.

What is a DUI?

Under 21 and Charged with UDD?

Colorado law prohibits you from driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or if your ability to drive is impaired by alcohol or drugs. These offenses are abbreviated as “DUI”,”DWAI”, and “DUI(D)”respectively. A person is presumed to be DUI if a blood or breath test shows a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of at least 0.08.

It is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to consume alcohol. You are charged with Underage Drinking and Driving (UDD) if are under 21 and driving with BAC of 0.02 but under .05. A UDD is a class A traffic violation and puts “points” against your driving record.

You must request a DMV Hearing within seven (7) days of receiving a ticket (Notice of Revocation) for DUI, DUID, DUI Per Se, DWAI, or UDD. At that time you will be given an appointment to speak with a Hearing officer (usually by phone), and your driving privileges will probably be continued temporarily. If you fail to request a DMV Hearing within seven (7) days, the DMV will revoke (most common) or restrict your driver’s license.

The officer who signed the affidavit and notice of hearing must show up and justify the revocation. Other officers may be subpoened. If you surrender a valid license, you may drive until your hearing. • Retest the sample. Testing errors could help prove your innocence. • Check the labeling of the sample. It must be identified as being yours.

DUI Sentencing The sentence for a DUI conviction will be based on several factors. The more prior convictions you have for DUI, the more likely you will be sentenced to jail for a current offense. Listed below are possible sentencing requirements for some of the more common charges:

For most judges, the single most important sentencing factor is whether you have prior alcohol or drug related traffic offenses. Judges are also concerned with whether a car accident occurred, your prior driving record, and whether you have been revoked from probation in prior cases.

In addition to deciding whether you will have to serve a jail sentence, the judge will also decide how many community service hours you will be required to do, how long your probation will be, and how much alcohol or drug therapy you must complete. First time offenders do not usually get sentenced to jail unless there are “aggravating factors,” such as a high BAC, or an accident that causes injury. The court relies on statutory sentencing requirements for jail time, fines and useful public service (UPS) hours.

treatment are required in all DUI cases. Based on the results of your evaluation, you will be required to complete an alcohol education and treatment program. Classes in these programs cost approximately $20/hr. and are divided into two levels – Level 1 and Level 2. Level 1 is often recommended for first time offenders, and requires the completion of 12 hours of classes that deal with alcohol related issues. Level 2 is always required when you have a prior DUI, but depending on your BAC level, it may be required for first time offenders as well. Level 2 requires you to complete 24 hours of classes.

Minimum court costs and statutory fees for a DUI are approximately $500. Useful public service (UPS) fees can cost up to $120. You will be required to pay the “Victim and Witness Assistance Fund” which is $78 or 37% of your total fine, whichever is greater, and can increase your court costs by as much as $555. Court costs are usually $500-$1,000. In addition to your court costs, there is a possible fine ($200-$1,500 for DWAI’s and DUI’s depending on priors). In addition, there are probation costs.

Probation costs are about $50 per month in addition to other costs and fines. Alcohol and drug treatment and therapy are also an additional cost of probation. The evaluation is part of the court costs, but depending on which level and which track your evaluation recommends, your costs for the treatment will range from $120-$1,000.

What is an SR-22? Once you are eligible to have your license reinstated, you must purchase a general automotive liability insurance policy filed on an SR-22 form.

Arrested For Domestic Violence? Things You Should Know

Arrested: What Happens Now If you have been arrested for a crime in the State of Colorado, an automatic protective order goes into effect. This order restrains a person from harassing, molesting, intimidating, retaliating against, or tampering with any witness or victim.

14-147

14-148

It is best to have no contact of any kind with witnesses or victims. Courts view harassing, tampering with or attempting to exert influence over a victim or witness in connection with a criminal proceeding as an assault on the justice system. The Court can impose severe penalties on offenders.

What is Domestic Violence?

14-149

14-151

14-150

14-152

Domestic violence is a charge of violence within the household or family. Courts consider domestic violence a very serious matter. If you are arrested on domestic violence charges, you will be required to see a judge. The judge will set the amount of your bail to be released from jail after determining the severity of violence committed and the level of threat you pose to the victim(s). Victims in a domestic violence case can be any family member or member of your household. This can be a spouse, significant other, children, parents, siblings or other relatives, but can also be a friend or roommate living in your home. Law enforcement’s primary goal in a domestic violence case is to remove the threat to the victim(s). For this reason, if an officer on scene detects any sign of domestic violence, they WILL make an arrest and remove the accused from the situation.

Protection Order aka “Restraining Order”

14-153

14-154

14-154

14-156

At your first hearing with the judge, the same one where your bail amount is decided, the court will issue a protection order. This order will detail restrictions against you while your case is pending. You will be asked before the hearing ends if you understand the terms of the protection order. Once you state that you do, you are bound by law to adhere to the terms, and can be rearrested if you violate those terms. It is important to understand that with a domestic violence protection order you cannot contact the victim(s) in any way. This means NO CONTACT, period, even if the victim initiates it by calling or writing to you first. You will be ordered to stay away from the victim(s)’ work and home, even if that is also your home!

with any other order the court deems appropriate N to protect the safety of the victim(s). In most cases of spousal domestic violence, childrenI will be included as victims in the protection order. w Y Protection Order Modifications v Only the judge can modify or lift the protectiond p order!

At the hearing, if you feel you are unable to complyA with any provisions of the order, explain yourt problem to the judge and they will determine ifi a modification is warranted. For example, if youv and the victim(s) work or go to school at the samea location, or if you are from out of town and mustp travel together, then modifications can often bep made allowing for these circumstances. Your biggest responsibility while awaiting your hearing or trial is to comply with all terms of the protection order against you. Remember, again, only the judge can modify or lift the protection order!

IMPORTANT: Always carry a copy of the protectionR order with you to show police if you are stopped! The order contains all of the specific terms thatC you must meet, and sometimes you can avoidt arrest by presenting the officer with the specificv c terms of the order. a Responsibilities While Out On Bond r If you need to go home and get your things,p but are prohibited from going home by theo t protection order, t you can contact m the police. They will t send an officer with you as a “standby” to T monitor and observe a the removal of your h belongings. n Stay on top of your t rent and other o bills. Even if you are prohibited from living at home, you are still legallyI responsible for your debts and bills, and can bev arrested for failure to meet these responsibilities. t n As difficult as it may be, be firm on maintaining no contact with the victim(s). You cannot evenV ask a friend to contact them on your behalf inm an attempt to resolve the situation. If the victimw calls you, you can not talk to them, hang up! If thea victim enters a room you are in, leave! If a friend of the victim calls to discuss the victim, hang up!V Even texts or emails from the victim should be given NO response.

The protection order will also state that you may In all cases of attempted contact by the victim, not possess firearms or other weapons, that keep records (messages, phone logs, etc) and you not possess or consume alcohol or other notify law enforcement immediately! controlled substances and that you must comply

Arrested For Domestic Violence? Things You Should Know

Need an Attorney?

It is always a good idea to consult an attorney when you charged in a domestic violence case. You will be prohibited from contacting the victim(s) in the case, but an attorney can establish dialogue to discuss living arrangements, bill payment, money, etc.

Attorneys can also help you understand the terms of the protection order which will be issued against you and can advise you of the victim’s position on that order. An attorney can also work with you and the court to have the protection order modified or lifted as soon as possible.

REMEMBER! Only the Court can change a Protective Order.

Reconciliation

Court appearances are scheduled quickly so as to facilitate solutions to the problems domestic violence causes, and to review protection orders and the need to “lift” or modify them.

The District Attorney (DA) will contact the victim and determine the level of violence and abuse that has occurred. The DA will listen to the wishes and needs of the victim and make recommendations to the court as to modifications to the protection order.

If you have an attorney, they can contact the victim as well to determine his/her requirements throughout the Protection Order as well as the need for its continuation.

Voluntarily entering counseling or anger management classes can demonstrate serious willingness to change on the part of domestic abusers.

Victim’s Responsibilities • Respect the conditions of the Protection Order and do not entice, seduce, or trick the restrained person into violating the protection order. Remember that even if you want to communicate,

15-167

15-168

you must voice this desire through the court and allow for proper modification of the protection order. • Cooperate in communicating with the DA or defendant’s attorney, as this is the process to a quicker resolution of your case. • Have a safety plan, including a place outside the family home to seek shelter in extreme cases. • Hire an attorney of your own to effect good communication with the defendent’s attorney and the court. • Remember and respect the needs of any children involved.

Quick Tips • Protection orders only work one way. You are the one restrained, not the victim. • DON’T DRINK! • The victim(s) can do anything they want to do (so long as no law is violated of course) without repurcussion. • The victim can call you, but if you talk to them that is a violation of the protection order and you can be arrested. • If the victim comes over and tries to talk with you and you agree, you have violated the protection order. • If you receive an email or text from the victim(s) and you respond, you are in violation of the protection order. • Do not contact the victim’s employer or other family members. It could get you arrested if someone complains. • If you see the victim, go the other way. If you’re at a restaurant or party, LEAVE! Don’t be fooled into thinking you were there first and it’s OK. Law enforcement may see it differently and arrest you! • If you both agree to meet at a restaurant for a drink to discuss things, you probably have violated the protection order at least three ways! • You should maintain a record of all attempts by the victim(s) to contact you. In the event of a violation, these records could be important. • Stay off Facebook and other social networks until the Protection Order is lifted. Statements made on websites could get you arrested.

REMEMBER! Permission to contact the victim can only come from the judge.
