    Default False Police Report - Domestic Violence

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Colorado

    So my girlfriend and I broke up and we got into a fight. The fight never exscalated into physical but she called the police and said I had beat her in numerous ways. I went to jail, hired a lawyer, still waiting on my arraignment.

    While waiting on my arraignment she has signed and notarized a letter stating she lied on her police report because she was upset that I broke up with her.

    I have not yet told my lawyer about this letter she mailed me.

    I dont know if there should be sufficient evidence to allow me to go through trial and plead not guilty and win the trial.

    Two Questions:

    1. I know Colorado is State vs. Myself, will that matter if she recounts her accusations?
    a. Would the DA drop charges before trial if they knew of this letter?

    2. What will the penalty be for her? (She is now living out of state)

    Thanks in advance



    Can anyone help me on this situation?

    You need to show this to your lawyer immediately.


    1. I know Colorado is State vs. Myself, will that matter if she recounts her accusations? a. Would the DA drop charges before trial if they knew of this letter?

    A: It is entirely up to the prosecutor.


    2. What will the penalty be for her? (She is now living out of state)

    A: The prosecutor could file a charge of filing a false police report.
