Eluding The Police

Denver and Greeley Traffic Attorney Monte Robbins defends drivers in Colorado who have been charged with eluding or attempting to elude the police. Eluding a police officer is a Class 2 Misdemeanor Traffic Offense. The possible penalty for this offense is 10 days to 90 days in jail and a fine of $150 to $300, plus courts costs, surcharge fees, restitution, probation, and driver’s license suspension. Thus, the consequences are severe.

In order to secure a conviction for this offense, the prosecutor must be able to show that a driver committed a law violation and that the driver received an alert from the officer to pull over. Thereafter, the driver either sped away from the officer or turned off his lights. The statute also contains a catch-all provision to include eluding or attempting to elude by “any other manner”.

It’s important to note that the prosecutor must also show that the officer was driving a marked vehicle of the police, sheriff, or Colorado State Patrol.

Upon conviction, 12 points will be assessed against a driver’s license, which will trigger a driver’s license point suspension.

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"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked.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sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked.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
