During law school she was an active member of the board for the student bar association, the Potter Law Club, and a member of Wyoming Law Students for Equal Justice.

After graduating, Courtney worked as a Deputy District Attorney in Eagle, Colorado, prosecuting traffic, misdemeanor, and felony cases. During her time with the District Attorney’s Office, Courtney acted as the prosecutorial representative on the local Access to Justice Committee as well as the Recovery Courts (DUI Court and Drug Court) in Eagle County.

Though Courtney may have grown up under the great blue skies of Wyoming, she is now proud to call the beautiful Eagle River Valley home and loves to explore all Colorado has to offer. When away from the office she enjoys camping, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, and whitewater SUP with her husband, Jamie.

Q. Can you be charged with a dui for walking intoxicated
A: DUI stands for Driving Under the Influence. A crucial element of the offense is that you were "driving" a motor vehicle at the time of the offense. Driving can be found even if the vehicle wasn't moving at the the time the police officer makes contact with you. For example, if you are sitting in a running vehicle which is capable of moving, you could be charged and convicted of DUI. However, if you weren't in a car, and weren't driving a car, and you were truly just walking down the street when contacted by the police, you cannot be charged or found guilty of DUI because you weren't driving a motor vehicle. If, however, you had been driving then parked (or crashed) a car, and were walking away from it when the police stopped you, you absolutely could be charged with DUI. Hope this helps!
Q. son incarcerated fines waived because he is indigent others denied why and is there anything else he can do ?
A: Some fines are mandatory and cannot be waived, even if indigent. Best thing he can do is get on some sort of payment plan with the court.
Q. Is blasting an air horn outside of an elderly handicapped persons dwelling on a daily basis considered assault?
A: Potentially. Criminal assault occurs when a person knowingly or recklessly causes bodily injury to another person. Bodily injury is defined as physical pain, illness, or any impairment of physical or mental condition. More likely though, this is a noise violation - either Disorderly Conduct under state law, or a violation of a municipal ordinance prohibiting excess noise outside of someone's dwelling or on private property.
