In today's blog, we'll look at the different sides involved when someone's facing sex crime charges in Colorado.
The Role of a District Attorney in a Colorado Sex Crime Case
The District Attorneys in Colorado are elected officials. They work for the government, but in a way they're really working for the people. In other words, the general public is more likely to vote for and support them if they have a good track record. If people want to learn about a District Attorney in Jefferson or Adams County, they'll only see if a prosecution was successful or not through the efforts of that DA. A DA wants to boost his reputation like anyone else, so he'll do whatever he can to ensure that a prosecution is successful. At the O'Malley Law Office, our sex crime defense attorneys have insight into how the DA's office works. In fact, one of our lawyers, Sean Harrell, worked as a Deputy District Attorney in Douglas and Arapahoe County before working with us. This makes us well-rounded and more equipped when serving our clients. In simpler words, you can trust us with your case.
A judge is also someone to be aware of. Learn more about judges and District Attorneys in Denver, Arapahoe and Jefferson County, Colorado:
The Police's Role in a Denver Sex Crime Case
Throughout the Denver metro area, police work with the District Attorneys, who work with the judges. Like the DA and the judge, the police want to maintain a good track record. It looks better for police if they make an arrest, so they're not as concerned about uncovering the truth of a case. Read another recent blog that shows how police really do try to boost their reputation by arresting innocent people.
