Sentencing – Community Accountability Program 19-2-914

H. Michael Steinberg is both an experienced and a dedicated Colorado Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney

As a former Senior – Career Arapahoe – Douglas County District Attorney – in his13 years (1984 – 1997) years as a prosecutor – H. Michael was assigned to the prosecution of hundreds of juvenile prosecutions. As a Colorado Criminal Defense Lawyer for the last 16 years (1997 – 2013) – he has successfully handled hundreds more juvenile cases.

Juvenile criminal defense lawyers must be specialized in this area and must have specialized training and experience to be effective on behalf of their clients… essentially just children. Because Juvenile Court is different than adult court –  an experienced lawyer in adult may be incompetent to practice in juvenile court.

Where your child’s freedom and future is at stake…go with experience every time.

Here is the statute referenced in the article that linked you to this page:

19-2-914. Sentencing – community accountability program

Except as otherwise provided in section 19-2-601, the court may sentence the juvenile to participate in the community accountability program as set forth in section 19-2-309.5. Such a sentence shall be a condition of probation and shall be for higher risk juveniles who would have otherwise been sentenced to detention or out-of-home placement or committed to the department of human services. A sentence pursuant to this section shall be conditioned on the availability of space in the community accountability program and on a determination by the division of youth corrections that the juvenile’s participation in the program is appropriate. In the event that the division of youth corrections determines the program is at maximum capacity or that a juvenile’s participation is not appropriate, the juvenile shall be ordered to return to the sentencing court for another sentencing hearing.
