If you enter a plea of Not Guilty to the charge against you, your case will be set for trial. There are two kinds of trials; a trial to the court and a jury trial. If you wish to set your case for a jury trial, the case must involve a violation that has a possible penalty of imprisonment (traffic or misdemeanor offense). Violations categorized as traffic or misdemeanor infractions are only eligible for a trial to the court.
To request a jury trial, both of the following must be done within 20 days of the Not Guilty plea:
The Jury Demand form requests the defendant’s name, and number of jurors requested. The number of juror requested may range from three to six. If both the Jury Demand and fee are not filed within the 20-day time frame, you will only be eligible for a trial to the court.
Determination for granting a court appointed attorney depends on two factors. The first is whether or not the prosecuting attorney is seeking jail time. If the prosecuting attorney is not seeking jail time, an attorney will not be appointed. The second determining factor is whether or not the defendant meets the state’s indigency guidelines. If it is determined that a defendant is not indigent, a court appointed attorney will not be granted.
Court appointed attorney applications are available by request from the Clerk of the Municipal Court, online under Self Help Forms as Application for Indigency/Court Appointed Counsel, or during open court.
You are entitled to request criminal restitution for actual and pecuniary damages sustained as a crime victim. This request must be accompanied by supporting documentation. The Restitution Request Form must be received by the City Attorney's Office or the City of Greeley Municipal Court, prior to the defendant's first appearance in the City of Greeley Municipal Court (within 2-3 weeks from date of crime). Contact the City Attorney's Office if you have any questions regarding the filing of a Restitution Request Form.
