6. What are common Aurora crimes?
The Aurora courts hear all kinds of criminal and traffic ticket cases, such as:
- DUI or DUI per se;
- drug charges;
- assault or menacing (CRS 18-3-206);
- speeding (CRS 42-4-1101);
- domestic violence-related crimes;
- shoplifting (CRS 18-4-406);
- violation of a protective order (CRS 18-6-803.5); or
- sex crimes.
7. How likely is it that I can get the charges dismissed?
It depends on the case and available evidence. For example, possible defenses to violent crime charges are that the defendant acted in self-defense, that the incident was accidental, or that the “victim” levied false accusations at the defendant.
The primary defense to fraud charges include that the defendant lacked any intent to defraud. And in DUI cases, potential defenses are that the breath- or blood-testing equipment malfunctioned or that the police failed to administer the field sobriety tests correctly.
An experienced criminal defense attorney is aware of which defenses have the best chances of getting charges dropped or reduced to a more minor offense in Aurora.
8. Do I need an attorney?
Defendants with attorneys have the best odds of getting their criminal charges lessened or dropped. As opposed to public defenders, private counsel has the time and tools to create the strongest defense possible. And the fact of the matter is that prosecutors are usually more willing to offer favorable plea deals to defendants with their own criminal defense representation.
