DENVER – Attorney General Suthers today released statewide figures detailing the number of charges brought by district attorneys following the implementation of HB-1011, the cornerstone of Suthers’ Safe Surfing Initiative, which has given law enforcement additional tools to prosecute Internet predators.

“In six short months, prosecutors have used these new laws to bring fifty-eight charges against alleged perpetrators,” said Suthers. “These laws are an important new tool in protecting our children from Internet predators.”

DENVER – Attorney General Suthers today released the first Methamphetamine Task Force Report pursuant to C.R.S. 18-18.5-103(6)(d). The Task Force was established last July to combat the scourge of methamphetamine in Colorado.

“Our data indicates that the rate of methamphetamine abuse has doubled in the last five years,” said Suthers, chair of the Methamphetamine Task Force. “This alarming trend has significant and devastating effects on our communities. Through the work of the Meth Task Force, we look forward to seeing this trend decline.”

DENVER – Attorney General Suthers today announced important consumer protection legislation to amend Colorado’s Unfair Practices Act.

“The essence of a free enterprise system is competition. By amending Colorado’s Unfair Practices Act, we’re putting the consumer and competition first by allowing lower prices on gas and prescription drugs,” said Suthers. “It is time to revisit this antiquated law to bring the concepts of predatory pricing and monopolistic behavior into the 21st century,” said Suthers.

DENVER – Attorney General Suthers today praised the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for the enforcement action taken in Greeley yesterday and other communities across the country.

“The misuse of valid social security numbers by illegal immigrants to secure employment has long been a problem. It is my hope that this enforcement action is an indication that federal authorities are determined to do something about it. It will require a significant dedication of resources by ICE and the Social Security Administration to solve the problem,” Suthers said.
