- Q. Speeding ticket with wrong registration address and possible non-protocol officer behavior.
- A: Opening the car door is a non-issue, as you only received a speeding ticket. Even if this was found to be an unlawful search, there is no evidence that could be suppressed related to your speeding charge. If you are living in state but are an out of state student (paying out of state tuition), you do not need to get Colorado plates or a Colorado license. If you are working in Colorado, you are required to change your plates and license. Sounds like there was a misunderstanding on whether you were working in Colorado or an out of state student. Regardless, the officer being rude does nothing to the ticket. For the incorrect information, it is a little unclear as to why that happened. If your car is improperly registered, that certainly would not help your case. If the ticket was mistakenly written for a completely different person, it may be worth your time and money to have an attorney review it before deciding if you want pay the ticket and take the points.
- Q. Can a juror in one criminal trial be on another jury in another criminal trial in a different county at the same time?
- A: There is nothing that would automatically prevent a juror from serving on your jury simply because they have a pending case in another county or make this a conflict of interest. Generally speaking, the juror should not be talking on the phone during deliberations (which is likely why the other prosecutor felt the need to disclose the conversation to the judge) but so long as the juror did discuss your case with the other prosecutor and did not lie and misrepresent having a pending case in another county during jury selection, there is nothing here would rise to the level a juror issue that could be the basis for an appeal.
- Q. How can you be convicted in a crime if there was no victim can the district attorney stand up and say that she is victim
- A: For this type of charge, there would never be a "victim"- the "victim" is the state, as the prosecutor said. There are many crimes like this- a DUI without an accident, for example, does not have a person who is a victim, the victim is the state as a whole, represented by the prosecution. The language from your PSI is just probation doing their due diligence in attempting to obtain any victim impact statement, as required by law. If there is no victim, there will be nothing for them to collect. A red card could explain why you have a certain number of plants, and I would assume that you having a red card and permission to grow that number of plants was raised at trial. Having a red card does not disprove an attempt to distribute, however, as that charge is not based on just having a certain number of plants or weight of marijuana. Intent to distribute would require more than just evidence of you having a number of plants- there would need to be evidence of activity that supported a plan for distribution, such as scales, ledges, numerous individual packages, or attempts or plans to sell to others.
