Eluding the Police with Reckless Driving

In Colorado, there are four (4) possible charges against a driver who is alleged to have eluded, or attempted to elude, the police.

One of the charges is a Misdemeanor, the other three (3) are Felonies.

In a case of Felony Eluding, the prosecutor must be able to show that the driver eluded or attempted to elude a police officer. The police officer must be operating a motor vehicle and the driver who is charged must know or should know that he is being pursued by the police. The prosecutor must also show that the driver operated his vehicle in a reckless manner. Careless driving is not sufficient for this charge.

In order to prove recklessness, the prosecutor must be able to prove that the driver willingly disregarded the safety of others. Reckless driving is a lesser included offense of Felony Eluding.

Felony Vehicular Eluding is a Class 5 Felony and is punishable by 1 to 3 years in prison, or 6 months to 6 years in prison in exceptional circumstances. The minimum fine is $2000.00.

Client Reviews
"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda
"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve
"I hired Monte J. Robbins to represent me. He gave 110% to my case never rushed me off the phone, quick to gather all information regarding my case. Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
