Boulder D.A. Dismisses Hit and Run Case: C.R.S. 42-4-1601

The Boulder District Attorney dismissed the pending felony charges against an 18 year old young woman who allegedly was involved in a hit and run, killing a 16 year old boy (C.R.S. 42-4-1601). Instead of thoroughly investigating the crime before rushing to arrest and charge this young woman, the Longmont Police and the Boulder Prosecutors brought charges before realizing that the evidence did not support her vehicle being at the scene of the accident. But what else is new? Colorado police in Adams, Broomfield and Denver County are notorious to bringing charges first and THEN investigating, trying to fit the facts into a conclusion they have already drawn.

In Colorado jurisdictions such as Jefferson, Douglas, and Arapahoe County, a hit and run can be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the level of injury to the person, if any. Because the victim in this case was killed, this young woman had been charged with a Hit and Run causing death, a class 3 felony. A class 3 felony carries up to 12 years in prison.

When you are charged with a crime, a lot of times it can feel like you are proving your innocence instead of the prosecutor having to prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. It is very lucky that the young woman in this case had friends and family at her Longmont church who could give her (and her car) a solid alibi for the time of the crime. Had she not been at the right place at the right time, she may have actually been falsely convicted of these charges and sentenced to the Department of Corrections (prison).

If you are under investigation for a crime or have been falsely accused of a crime, the attorneys at the O'Malley Law Office can help you. We will hold the district attorneys to their burden of proof and stand along side you as we poke holes in their case. Don't let a felony conviction ruin your life. So, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and call us today at 303-731-0719. Together, we can protect your future.
