The Properly-Named (But Ignored) Victim:

Victim Rights Attorney in Colorado

THE PROPERLY-NAMED (BUT IGNORED) VICTIM:

A person who is an actual victim, but who wishes and rights are ignored by police and prosecutors.

Often a person is alleged to be a victim, and that person is in fact an actual victim;  however, the police and prosecutors simply ignore such victim’s rights and wishes in the case.  Essentially, the police and prosecution ignore justice for victims.  This occurs when the police and prosecutors simply do not consider the victim’s goals and desires in the case – tending to re-victimize and further endanger victims of domestic violence.  Often, this is the result of laziness and arrogance.  Police and prosecutors often choose not to investigate and prosecute cases because they think they are “too busy” or because they think they are the expert and they know best.  When this happens (or even when victims start to be ignored), victims of domestic violence need legal representation to protect them and their rights.

Victims of domestic violence have a right to have legal counsel represent them.  Victims of domestic violence have a right to have an attorney represent them to the police and prosecution before (and prior to) making any statements to them.  Victims also have a right to have legal representation in court.  Victims have a right to have an attorney advising them and representing their legal rights, interests, and privileges while in court to all parties involved – including the defendant’s lawyer, the judge, the prosecution, and the police.

I have deen a victim of financial fraud. A person took my $11,000 deposit for an ordered steel building , and he kept my money without giving me my item. I did get someone in the SHeriff’s office to investigate. They pressed charges. Then when it came time to get ready for trial the DA dropped the case “because he felt the jury would feel the person was just a bad business man”. I did get another office to keep investigating the man. The original investigator said it should have went to the econ fraud area and not the DA that originally had the case. However, the new DA and investigator said they can not re-charge him for his crime against me because the criminal has “right to a speedy trial”. Is that true or are they just being lazy?

I am so upset. What can I do? DO I not have any rights? If you can’t offer advise on this, do you know where I can turn?
Since the Sherrifs office charged him before, would it be the same if I get the police to investigate? FBI? ANything I can do? It just isn’t fair.
