Double Jeopardy in Denver Courts and Criminal Cases

The Constitutional Law of Double Jeopardy in Denver Courts

Double Jeopardy is a rule of law which prevents a person from being charged twice in courts for the same offense. Without this rule, Denver government could keep charging you over and over again until they obtained a conviction. It provides finality to a very important matter: the government trying to take away your freedom. If a person is voted guilty or not guilty by a jury, the matter is put to rest once and for all. A jury deadlock can still result in another trial, because no final verdict was obtained. Some Rules of Jeopardy.

No-Contest and Nolo Contendere Pleas in Denver Courts

What is a No-Contest / Nolo Contendere Plea in Denver Courts?

It happened again today, like it happens many times a year. Someone called from out of state to ask questions about a Governor's Warrant for Extradition to Colorado, after a family member's arrest.

Child-Enticement-Lawyer.jpgWhen Enticement of a Child Charges are Filed in Douglas County, Jurors are Ready to Convict

Enticement of a Child, C.R.S. 18-3-305, allegations are frequently brought to the Douglas County District Attorneys' Office.

DAs don't need clear evidence of the crime. They just need a child claiming it happened, and they are plentiful. A jury is willing to convict on Enticment allegations and the sad news is that the reasonable doubt burden of proof, is not important.
