The crime of burglary, or breaking and entering, does not necessarily involve theft.

The FCC, which regulates broadband carriers in the United States, was created by the federal government in 1934. In 2005, the FCC established net neutrality protections and these rules were strengthened by the agency’s 2015 Open Internet Order, which provided strong protections to keep content flowing freely on the internet.

The right to a court-appointed attorney is usually triggered by felony charges. Misdemeanors are less serious crimes and usually carry penalties that include jail time up to one year. They are charged by written indictment, and low-income defendants may not be entitled to a court-appointed attorney in many jurisdictions.
In Colorado, you must have permission from the land owner before entering private property. Hunters can be charged with trespassing violations without realizing they were committing a crime. Private lands do not have to be fenced or posted, and it is too easy to wander onto them accidentally when you are out hunting. Trespassing is a serious offense. A conviction can have a negative impact on your future, including criminal penalties and loss of your hunting privileges.
