THE USED-AND-ABUSED VICTIM:
A person who is an actual victim, but a victim of much less serious conduct than the defendant is charged with committing.
One of the most used and abused victims in the criminal justice system in Colorado is the person who is a victim of a minor (or less serious) offense, but the police and prosecutors seek to punish the offender for outrageously serious conduct with outrageously serious penalties. When this happens, such victims of domestic violence find themselves forced to choose between (1) obtaining a little justice in return for the accused person being treated in an abhorrently unjust and harmful way or (2) obtaining no justice in order to spare the accused person from being so gravely punished and abused by the system.
In these circumstances, victims of domestic violence are well served by obtaining legal representation from an experienced Colorado attorney who knows how to effectively represent victims, their interests, and their rights. Every victim’s interest are different. Finding an attorney who you can work with and understand is essential, but also retaining an attorney who has the experience, knowledge, and courage to successfully go up against prosecutors and police who simply are unwilling to ensure justice for victims and their loved ones.
