ABUSE OF PUBLIC RECORDS

Abuse of public records can be a serious charge, requiring the services of an esteemed Denver criminal attorney.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with abuse of public records if the individual makes a false entry in or falsely alters any public record; or, if the individual, knowing he or she lacks the authority to do so, destroys, mutilates, conceals, removes, or impairs the availability of any public record; or, if the individual, knowing he or she lacks the authority to retain the record, refuses to deliver up a public record in the person’s possession upon proper request by any person with lawful right to make such a request; or, if the individual, knowing he or she has not been authorized by the custodian of the public record to do so, knowingly alters any public record.
