Does the Colorado Victim's Rights Amendment, and the procedures for enforcement under C.R.S. 24-4.1-304 apply to a home rule municipality if the municipal language is identical to the language of the crimes listed as falling under the VRA by the C.R.S.?
You ask a question that it seems you already know the answer to. A home rule jurisdiction, such as Denver, has its own sets of guidelines and their rules apply.
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.
