Client Reviews
R. W. February 3, 2021
Thank you Mr. Steinberg. Having been erroneously accused of multiple criminal misdemeanors, my research led me to hire Mr. Steinberg. And, Mr. Steinberg leveraged his decades of experience in my defense. I ended the year with an unexpected present - the DA asked that the case be dismissed. I only wish they had listened to Mr Steinberg months earlier. But, case dismissed. Thank you Mr. Steinberg. RW

Legal Answers
78 Questions Answered
Q. Why would one of my two felony identity theft identical warrants be dropped and sealed at my first appearance on that ca
A: The only logical answer is they accidentally double filed the same case and corrected their mistake using the procedure you outlined.
Q. Will only a written statement hold up in the preliminary hearing if the alleged victim doesn't show up?
A: The alleged victim almost never testifies at a Preliminary Hearing. The district attorney almost always calls one maybe two witnesses, usually the Detective who filed the case and one of the original responding police officers. The testimony consists primarily of a review of the investigation and the statements of witnesses. The rules of evidence are greatly relaxed and hearsay testimony is permitted.

To answer your question - a written statement of the alleged victim is admissible at a "prelim"- but not at trial. The witness is required to testify at trial.

Here is an article that may help.

Q. Do i need a lawyer everytime iam in front of the judge
A: The quick answer is no - depending on the case the judge will always give you an opportunity to locate and retain a lawyer or to apply for a public defender (free court appointed lawyer) if you qualify. Colorado judges are well known for their compassion and understanding and their patience, especially in these difficult times, to find appropriate legal representation. Best HMS
