All Felony Charges Dismissed by Arapahoe County DA of Colorado
We are proud and elated to have prevailed on the District
Attorney's Office of Colorado to dismiss the entire felony
case against our client, a health care professional, at the
pre-trial readiness conference (This is the time the
prosecution and the defense informs the Judge whether or not
the case will go to trial or is to be re set to another
date). The dismissal saved the client the costs of a five
day trial with out of state expert witnesses. (Several
thousands of $$$).
Our professional staff provided the District Attorney with
our 200 pages evidence without revealing our trump cards or
our aces in the hole (we had several).
Before the client came to our law firm, the client had
already voluntarily submitted to an interrogation by the
police. The client ultimately "confessed" to the police and
signed a written statement admitting to the allegations.
However, our thorough analysis of the physical evidence,
police reports, witness statements, our client's video and
written confession, our detailed and thorough investigation,
and interviewing over 30 witnesses told us a different
story. A story... establishing our client's innocence. The
client could not explain why he or she "confessed" to the
police. However, our professional defense team realized and
understood that the "confession" was obtained because of the
client's personality and tendency to submit to "authority"
figures (police are authority figures). We consulted with a
pre-eminent expert on police interrogation techniques and
how such interrogations are designed to elicit "confessions"
from interviewees (without regard to the innocence or guilt
of the interviewee) and the coerciveness of police
interrogations and an expert on human personality types and
behavioral patterns while under police interrogations. The
underlying assumption and precept in any police
interrogation is that the subject of the interview
(interviewee) is guilty as hell and it is up to the skill,
persistence, trickery and techniques used by the interviewer
(trained and well experienced police interrogator) that
"gets" the interviewee to finally ' confess".
Police interrogations remind me of the movie "Under
Suspicion" (where Morgan Freeman is the police interrogator
and Gene Hackman is a well experience lawyer). Morgan
Freeman after some time interrogating Gene Hackman about
some vicious murders finally confesses to these murders
(although he was completely innocent). In the movie, Gene
Hackman was very lucky because just after he finally
confessed another murder occurred (similar pattern of
previous murders) while he was in police custody being
interrogated. How lucky for the character played by Gene
Hackman. In real life, you may never be so lucky.
We even billed the District Attorney Office for discovery
and obtained a check for over $120.00. The District
Attorney's Office even was required to come to our office on
a date and time certain with proper identification to pick
up discovery. We gave no quarter to the high and mighty
district attorney's office. We were tough as nails and never
To give credit where credit is due. The client must be
commended for having confidence in us for these long months.
We never lost faith in the client and the client never lost
faith in us.
The lesson in all of this long process is that "NEVER EVER
SPEAK TO THE POLICE IF THERE IS THE SLIGHTEST CHANCE YOU
COULD BE ACCUSED AND CHARGED OF A CRIME".
The police pry n people's misconception and if you are
innocent you have nothing to fear for the "truth will set
you free" Do not believe in this institutional and
governmental propaganda and lies.
Remember the police have the license and are legally allowed
to Lie, cheat, deceive, play games, trick you into
confessing while they are investigating a crime. However,
you are "never" allowed to lie, cheat, deceive, play games,
trick the police at any time.
You have only two choices. The first and best one is to
remain silent and speak the "truth" and be tricked into
Remember, one thing, the only time police want to speak to
you is when they have no case, or a weak case, or they want
to build an air-tight case against you. The police methods
and thinking is "heads I (police) win and Tails You lose.
They will win every time you speak with the police. Whenever
you speak to the police you will always do so at grave peril
to your life and liberty and will have to invest a whole lot
of money to prove your innocence.
Our client now will ever speak to the police or government
without having an attorney present. It is cheaper to retain
and pay for an attorney before the fact than it is after you
are charged. It is even better to be arrested (everyone will
tell you that if the police have the evidence to charge and
arrest you they will do that even if you do not speak to
them or even if you speak with them. Your speaking with the
police makes no difference in the police's decision to
charge or arrest you. But if you do speak with them you may
be helping the police to build and make a solid case against
Once a case is build it is very difficult and expensive to
demolish their case. Even the District Attorneys will not
give you a break by dismissing the case if they can
reasonably prove their case against you (your statements can
make the difference in not dismissing the case.)
You should note that District Attorneys do not favor
dismissing a case they would rather have you plead to a
lesser criminal offense in order to send you a message and
thereby ensuring you have a criminal record. It is very
difficult, time consuming to seal a criminal record. In some
instances you cannot seal your record, however long you
wait. Once you have a criminal record you may never the get
the plumb job you deserve because of the criminal record.
Your future and life is worth far more than what you will
have to invest in attorney fees and cost to defend you.
