The Colorado Supreme Court Model Criminal Jury Instructions Committee has released its annual update to Colorado’s model jury instructions for use in state criminal trials.
The model instructions adopted in 2017 can be accessed at the Committee’s webpage, and they contain instructions concerning all of the offenses defined in Title 18 of the Colorado Revised Statutes (the Criminal Code), as well as select offenses defined in Title 42 (Vehicles and Traffic). This annual update incorporates new legislation and published case law that developed since the release of the prior edition.
Users may download Word and PDF versions of the instructions, both of which feature hyperlink capabilities for ease of use. For any questions regarding the instructions, users are encouraged to contact the Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
