Earlier in the year, a string of attempted robberies and robberies occurred at various Colorado businesses and banks. The office of the Denver District Attorney recently announced that four individuals have now been charged with multiple felonies for incidents that happened from May 23 to June 14. The ages of the four accused men are 39, 28, 21 and 19.
The two older men face 44 and 40 charges, respectively. These include violations of the Colorado Organized Crime Control Act, aggravated robbery, burglary, kidnapping and more. The 39-year-old man was allegedly involved in six robberies and attempted robberies while the 28-year-old man allegedly participated in four other robberies and one attempted robbery that were all carried out between June 6 and June 14.
The two cousins each face felony aggravated robbery charges along with sentence enhancers for violent crimes. Both of them have been in jail since their arrest in mid-July. Their involvement in the robberies allegedly includes a crime on May 23 at a branch of Community Banks of Colorado.
These men are now awaiting their next appearances in court. Others in similar circumstances will likely exercise their rights to retain the services of experienced criminal law attorneys to handle the defense against the charges they face. Being charged with felonies does not mean the accused person is guilty, and he or she will remain innocent until — and only if — proved guilty in a court of law. A Colorado attorney can assess the charges and the evidence and devise a defense strategy that will focus on achieving the best possible outcome under the circumstances.
