Criminal charges filed after May crime spree in Colorado

Following a number of burglaries in one common area in Denver on one day, police say they have arrested four men linked to the alleged crime spree that also included a murder. Criminal charges were filed against the suspects, who purportedly committed several home invasions and one murder in mid-May. A spokesperson for the Denver Police Department says the arrest of the fourth suspect answered many questions.

The latest arrest was made in another state, and the subject was a 17-year-old man. Police say the young man was arrested when officers responded to a disturbance call and came across two alleged home invaders of which the one was linked to the Colorado crime spree. According to police reports, seven burglaries were investigated -- including one that ended in the death of a 27-year-old resident of one of the homes.

Reportedly, one of the suspects is a girl who is only 15 years old, but she might be charged as an adult. The ages of the other three individuals are 17, 18 and 20 years. Authorities say at least one of the suspects is a member of a violent street gang.

The futures of youths who face criminal charges in Colorado may be at stake. After they are arrested, the steps taken can play significant roles in the way their lives will play out. Allegations must be proved, and only if -- and when -- the prosecution establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt can defendants be convicted. With the support and guidance of an experienced criminal defense attorney, appropriate penalties may be negotiated if plea deals are offered.
