COLORADO SUPPORT OF DEATH PENALTY DECLINING A new poll released in September showed that 62% of Colorado voters now prefer a sentence of life in prison over the death penalty. The swift loss of support comes after juries rejected the death penalty in the sentening of James Holmes and Dexter Lewis.
The Colorado Criminal Defense Bar is dedicated to protecting the rights of the accused and is unalterably opposed to the death penalty. We provide training and support to the criminal defense community in an effort to promote zealous advocacy for our clients at every stage of representation.
CCDB is the only statewide organization devoted solely to the representation of persons accused of committing crimes. We provide crucial services and support to private criminal defense practitioners, public defenders, paralegals, and investigators. We are committed to providing our members with the tools they need to better represent their clients and working together to improve Colorado’s criminal justice system.
