Witness Intimidation is rare but it does occur. Intimidation comes in many forms including but not limited to:
- requests not to testify
- requests to change your testimony
- threats of physical harm
If you are in immediate danger, please call 911
The District Attorney's Office actively discourages the intimidation of victims and witnesses. We do this by implementing appropriately restrictive bail conditions, the use of criminal contempt, the use of additional criminal charges and sanctions as provided by the Victim/Witness Intimidation Statute. In addition, victims are encouraged to use the victim/witness waiting room in the courthouse. To report intimidation or threats contact the police and our office.
Cases involving threats of physical harm or death may qualify for Colorado’s Witness Protection Program.
