Today, the Boulder DA dismissed all charges, including 2 felony charges against my client. The DA never made a reasonable offer. It was basically to plea to the high charge with no sentencing concessions. We presented a good motion to suppress issue that the judge denied, but left open good appeal issues. We investigated and prepared for trial. A week prior, the DA made a somewhat better offer, but not good enough. We asked for a misdemeanor that they denied. I learned the DA had witness problems that they were not disclosing. After fully informing my client, he decided to roll the dice with my approval. The DA dismissed because she knew she could not proceed. My client is free and clear. It is possible that the case can come back later as the statute of limitations has not ended. My client knows this. We will be ready if they try.
