Know Your Rights
When someone enters a "not guilty" plea, they are exercising their constitutional rights and challenging the government to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they did, in fact, commit a crime. With the burden of proof on the prosecutor, a person charged with a crime is believed to be given a fair trial. However, this doesn't mean that you can't be as prepared as possible. With the right defense strategies in place, you can ensure that your rights will be protected and that you'll be prepared for the unexpected.
If you have your appearance at the Colorado Springs Municipal Court for a minor offense and enter a "not guilty" plea, your case will be assigned a date for trial at a later time. If an agreement is not found, the case will go to trial in which, if there are witnesses, they will appear per the schedule.
If you have a non-minor offense and enter a "not guilty" plea, you will be given an immediate pre-trial conference to address the City Attorney at your arraignment. If an agreement is not reached, the case will go to trial and witnesses, if there are any, may be scheduled to appear.
After being charged with a criminal violation, there is a lot to keep track of in terms of the laws you must follow and the steps you need to take to ensure that your rights are defended. It is very important not to discuss your case with anyone but your attorney. Once you've been charged, anything and everything that you do, including your Internet activity, could potentially be used against you during trial at the Municipal Court.
With a skilled lawyer on your side, you can be sure that the proper measures will be taken to keep up to speed on the requirements and development of your case. In evaluating the specifics of your situation, your attorney can help you determine the most effective course of action to successfully resolve your case. It is helpful to discuss a plea, probation, specialized programs, and expungement, just to name a few, with your lawyer.
