There is no such thing as a free lunch.
The previous answer is correct regarding the Colorado Bureau of Investigations.
You can also run a search through www.cocourts.com and search by your name and the county in which you were charged/convicted for $6. Be sure to include all counties you believe you have cases in the initial search or it will charge you charged $6 for each search you run.
Best of luck to you.
No answer here should be considered to form an attorney-client relationship. You should consult with a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction so that a full evaluation of the facts of your case can be conducted.
You cannot get your criminal history for free - unless you have a friend in law enforcement. You can run a backgrouns check through CBI for less than $7.
You can reach Harkess & Salter LLC at (303) 531-5380 or [email protected] Stephen Harkess is an attorney licensed in the state and federal courts of Colorado. This answer is for general information only and does not create an attorney client relationship between Stephen Harkess or Harkess & Salter LLC and any person. You should schedule a consultation with an attorney to discuss the specifics of your legal issues.
Mr. Harkess is correct. Unless you have a friend who is in law enforcement or an investigator with a DA's Office, you have to pay at least a nominal amount ($7). Even attorneys have to do this to check criminal histories of victims and witnesses in municipal cases at times.
