Municipal Prosecutor

Prosecuting Attorney

The city prosecutor is the legal counsel representing Greenwood Village. If you are summoned into court for a traffic or misdemeanor violation, you will speak to the city prosecutor regarding your case. The city prosecutor is given the responsibility of reviewing your past history (either criminal or traffic) and determining the penalty that is recommended to the judge.

The prosecutor has the right to offer or not offer a reduction in the original charges based on your past history, called a plea bargain. The city prosecutor also has the right to not offer a plea bargain based on the type of charge and your past history.

As part of your discussion with the city prosecutor you will be advised of your right to take your case to a trial, if that right exists for your offense. If a case proceeds to trial, it is the city prosecutor who prosecutes the case on behalf of the Village.
