Criminal Law in Colorado and Denver

Being charged with a crime in Colorado or Denver can be a stressful experience. Police frequently are unwilling to give a defendant the benefit of the doubt and will often issue a summons charging an individual with a crime when the officer is either unsure of what happened or has come to the conclusion a crime has been committed, many times without having fully investigated both sides of the case. This is further compounded by district attorneys who aggressively pursue prosecution strategies which can result in defendants being overcharged for offenses and crimes they didn’t commit, and public defenders that are overworked to the¬†point where they are unable to fully investigate and prepare a thorough defense.

If you are charged with a crime in Denver or Colorado, having an attorney guide you through the criminal process is an important component of protecting your rights and ensuring you are not found guilty of a crime you did not commit. The posts on this website discuss the criminal justice system and criminal procedure within Colorado and Denver courts; they are intended to give assistance and clarification to defendants charged with crimes in those courts.
