  1. Your question is unclear to me. If you are a party to a case, one-sided communication is disallowed. If you are simply trying to get information about a criminal case to someone, the prosecutor is a good palce to start as he or she has an obligation to share it with the otehr side.

    Good luck.

    In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.

  2. You should only communicate with your lawyer about your case.

    This response is a general answer to your question and is not intended as constituting legal advice or creating a client-attorney relationship. Please read our full disclaimer here:

  3. As a former judge, I can tell you that you can not have this "ex parte" communication with the judge. The judge simply will not read it an will send a copy of it to your Public Defender and the DA and send out an order for you to not attempt to directly communicate with the judge every again.

    The information provided in this answer does not create an attorney-client relationship. If you are interested in his legal services, feel free to call Chris at (303) 409-7635 at his law office in the Denver Tech Center. All initial consultations are free of charge.

  4. If you are the defendant DO NOT write anything down and send it to anybody. Other than to your own attorney.
