Clear active warrants for nonviolent misdemeanors at Fresh Start event


People with active warrants for nonviolent, low-level misdemeanors and traffic violations in Jefferson and Gilpin counties have an upcoming opportunity to resolve the outstanding cases.

Colorado’s First Judicial District is again hosting a Fresh Start event, according to a news release.

The event resolves outstanding minor cases that involve arrests and court appearances, which can negatively impact defendants who want to accept accountability. People on probation who have fallen out of compliance can “re-engage” and get back to completing their sentence.

This year’s event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5, at the Jefferson County Administration and Courts Facility, 100 Jefferson County Parkway, Golden.

People who attend will appear before a deputy district attorney who may offer a plea agreement to those eligible, paving the way for the underlying warrant to be cleared by a judge who may resolve the case or set a court appearance date.
