Colorado Springs Criminal Defense Attorney Investigates

After attempting to calm my client down, I ordered the police reports to find out what the evidence against my client was to have the District Attorney’s Office make such a harsh offer. To my surprise, the case against my client was extremely weak. The law enforcement officer who ticketed my client did not witness the event. In fact, the only witness was a woman who said my client had driven in a reckless manner almost causing her to wreck her car. The Officer got her side of the story and then came and asked my client if it was true. My client denied any wrong doing, in fact, explaining to the Officer that the woman had been the one who was driving in a reckless and dangerous manner. My client explained that the woman had flipped him off and then driven past him cutting him off. When questioned again by the Officer, the woman sheepishly admitted that she did flip him off (something she had forgotten to mention earlier), but insisted that my client was still driving recklessly. Any guesses on who walked away from the incident with a ticket for reckless driving? My client!!

Weak Case For Reckless Driving

After realizing that the District Attorney’s case was extremely weak and that not even a competent and experienced criminal defense attorney in Colorado Springs could defend this case in court, I prepared for trial. The good news is that the District Attorney, knowing the case was set for trial, agreed to dismiss the case outright. Unfortunately, my client had the stress and inconvenience of court and the frustration of not being believed.
