Charged Criminally? Our Criminal Justice Attorney Explains What Happens Next
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Most people facing a misdemeanor charge or felony charge in Northern Colorado have never faced the criminal justice system before. The government’s power to prosecute can crush you.
If you have been charged or think you will soon be charged, don’t say another word to the police or prosecutor. Come see Jerry Roselle and Will Breitigam in Fort Collins as soon as you can. Our experienced, intelligent defense protects you from that governmental power.
The Criminal Justice Process
The first stage of the criminal justice process may be your bond and advisement hearing. If you do not have a lawyer with you, this can be confusing. Roselle & Breitigam, P.C., will argue on your behalf for the lowest bond possible, the issues around the bond, keeping your driver’s license and other matters relating to maintaining your freedom. This part of the process typically occurs shortly after your arrest and formal charges. Mr. Roselle and Mr. Breitigam will explain this in plain language and make sure you understand your options.
The next major stage of your case includes investigating and confronting the government’s accusations against you. This part of the process may take several weeks to several months, depending upon the nature of the case. Felony cases in district court can take longer than misdemeanor cases handled at the county court level, although every case is individual.
Numerous court appearances may be required in your case. We appear at all hearings and thoroughly prepare you for all decisions you will be required to make.
Your most important decision is to retain experienced and respected criminal defense attorneys. Keep this in mind: the government has already started their case against you. Don’t delay this decision and lose critical time and momentum.
