Jury-Judge-Trial-Colorado.jpgJury Trial or Judge Trial for Denver Criminal Charges

In many courts, you have the choice whether to have a judge or a jury decide your guilt or innocence. But which is better? You want to be found innocent and not guilty, right? If so, consider a Denver jury trial every time. Judges are not the best route to take. Let's figure out why in the blog to follow.  Read why a jury trial is best.

Reckless Endangerment, C.R.S. 18-3-208 - In Denver Metro Area

Reckless Endangerment is defined by C.R.S. 18-3-208 as "a person who recklessly engages in conduct which creates a substantial risk of serious bodily injury to another person." I'm not sure if it is the shortest statute on the books, but it must be a contender.

Police Officers & Courts: Look Out for #1

In the legal business, police officers are the first judge people meet. Really. Arapahoe and Douglas County officers must make decisions on who to arrest and what crimes to charge.

They often just charge both men because this is safer for their careers.

Like Everyone, Many Judges are Biased


We all like to think of judges as neutral parties - and some really are. More recently in Colorado, however, we are seeing many Deputy District Attorneys being appointed as judges.

The problem is that District Attorneys are not able to set their DA mindset aside when working with defense attorneys and their defendant clients.
