After Arraignment

If the defendant enters a plea of not guilty, the case is scheduled for a Disposition Hearing and a Trial.

In between the Arraignment and Disposition Hearing, the prosecution and defense exchange information. This is called “discovery.” The process for receiving discovery from the prosecution depends on the type of case.

Municipal ordinance cases (D.R.M.C.) are prosecuted by the City Attorney. You can receive discovery online or in person from the City Attorney’s Office.

Trial Courtrooms for municipal ordinances cases are located in the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse at 520 W. Colfax Avenue and are Courtroom 3G; Courtroom 3H; Courtroom 4A, and Courtroom 4B.

Misdemeanor and petty offense cases (C.R.S.) are prosecuted by the District Attorney. Defense attorneys can call the District Attorney’s Office at 720-913-9001 to request discovery. For more information go to the District Attorney’s Website.

Trial Courtrooms for misdemeanor and petty offense cases are located in the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse at 520 W. Colfax Avenue and are Courtroom 3A; Courtroom 3B; Courtroom 3C; Courtroom 3D; Courtroom 3E; and 3F.

Either side can file Motions, including a Motion to Dismiss the case, or to prevent evidence from being used at trial.

At the Disposition Hearing, the Judge and lawyers may talk about how the case can be resolved without going to trial. The defendant can change his or her plea to guilty or no contest.
