Juvenile Crime Conviction in Denver, Colorado

In some cases, but not all, juveniles in Denver, Colorado who have violated the law can be convicted of a crime, so long as they are at least 10 years old. Only when the juvenile is at least 16 years old, can the District Attorney file adult charges, where a conviction may result. This filing process is called a Direct File or Direct Filing. Recently, the Colorado governor signed a law into place which raised the age limit from 14 to 16 years old, when the DA may do a Direct File on a juvenile. The new law allows DAs to charge young kids as adults in murder, violent sex crimes, kidnapping and assaults which are violent. Juveniles charged via the Direct File can appeal to a district judge, who gets to say whether or not the child should be tried as an adult.
