Accessory to a Crime Charges in Aurora | Criminal Lawyer

accessory-to-a-crime-charges-omalley-and-sawyer-llc.jpgAccessory to a crime charges in Aurora, Colorado can result when someone provides some type of assistance to another in committing an offense. Even when the other person is only suspected of a crime, an accessory to that offense can face damaging criminal charges. Being an accessory to a felony crime is a felony offense itself. If you're being accused of accessory to crime, contacting an experienced criminal defense attorney is the best course of action.

Arapahoe County's Accessory to a Crime Law

Arapahoe County's accessory to a crime law prohibits aiding a criminal act. C.R.S. 18-8-105 addresses these violations throughout Colorado. A person commits this crime in Aurora, Centennial, or Englewood if they:

  • render assistance,
  • intending to hinder, delay, or prevent,
  • the discovery, detection, apprehension, prosecution, conviction, or punishment,
  • of someone for commission of a crime

Accessory crimes can include warning an individual that committed a crime of investigation and police contact, helping them hide, providing them with money / transportation, or manipulating evidence that could be used against them. This is a complex offense that needs the attention and analysis of a strategic criminal lawyer.

Is Accessory to Crime a Felony in Arapahoe County?

Being an accessory to a misdemeanor offense is a petty offense in the state of Colorado. This can still result in months in county jail and a few thousand dollars in fines. However, if you're convicted of accessory to a crime that is a felony offense, you also face a felony. Ramifications can include years in the Colorado Department of Corrections and up to six-figure fines. Assisting in a crime pre-offense or post-offense is dangerous conduct and negatively impact your future for years, if not decades.
