Rules of Criminal Procedure Committee

There are fourteen members of the Criminal Rules Committee. The membership is comprised of District and County Court judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys. The committee of the whole meets approximately four times per year. There are a variety of subcommittees that meet to discuss changes to a particular rule or to discuss changes around a specific topic.

The Committee makes suggestions to the Supreme Court for changes to the Colorado Rules of Criminal Procedure. These rules govern the procedure in all criminal proceedings in all courts of record in Colorado. They are not applicable to municipal ordinances and charter violations. The Rules of Criminal Procedure are intended to “provide for the just determination of criminal proceedings. They shall be construed to secure simplicity in procedure, fairness in administration, and the elimination of unjustifiable expense and delay.” Rule 2, Colorado Rules of Criminal Procedure.

The Committee is currently chaired by Judge John Dailey of the Colorado Court of Appeals.
