The Discovery Process

What is Discovery

Discovery is the process by which the 11th Judicial District Attorney’s Office provides information, facts, documents, and other materials to defense regarding a filed case, as governed by the Colorado Rules of Criminal Procedure. Discovery material is submitted by law enforcement agencies or obtained during further investigation by police and the DA investigators. Discovery does not include the work product generated by the DA’s office.

Discovery Requests

Discovery is available on active cases to the attorney of record and to pro-se defendants ONLY. Discovery will not be released to a defendant if represented by counsel. For all other records requests pursuant to the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) or the Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act (CCJRA) please follow the Records Request Procedure
