1 OFFICE OF THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY GEORGE H. BRAUCHLER, DISTRICT ATTORNEY 18TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT SERVING ARAPAHOE, DOUGLAS, ELBERT AND LINCOLN COUNTIES 6450 S. REVERE PARKWAY CENTENNIAL, CO (720) FAX (720) ECONOMIC CRIME COMPLAINT FORM Introduction Please complete the following questions and provide the requested information and documentation to your local law enforcement agency. Due to the high volume of complaints received by local law enforcement agencies and the District Attorney s Office, all complaints must be submitted in written form. In many cases, Investigators cannot begin to investigate an alleged economic crime without access to business, bank, government and other records; and investigators do not have the legal authority to obtain them at the complaint stage. The investigator must depend on the complainant to provide those records to which they are entitled. This Complaint Form lists information and documents that the District Attorney s Office believes are needed to determine whether criminal charges should be filed; however, your local law enforcement investigator may request additional information. The District Attorney s Office may not review a case for filing unless the information and documentation requested in this form are complete. This information, in addition to the information that may be required by your local law enforcement agency, may result in the case being transferred to another jurisdiction where a different law enforcement agency or regulatory agency will evaluate your complaint. If the investigator believes that criminal charges may be warranted, the investigator will present a case filing to the District Attorney s Office for review. The District Attorney s Office will consult with the investigator before making a decision to file or not to file criminal charges. The prosecution s burden of proof in a criminal case is proof beyond a reasonable doubt, which is much more than is required in a civil case. Allegations of criminal conduct should be supported by tangible physical evidence, documentation, and eyewitnesses whenever possible. The District Attorney represents the People of the State of Colorado against defendants accused of committing crimes and does not represent victims of crime on an individual basis. If you believe that you may have a civil claim against the person or business on which you are basing your complaint, please be aware that you may have claims that will not be addressed by the filing of any criminal charges. Civil claims may be forever barred if no lawsuit is brought within the applicable statute of limitations. Therefore, you may wish to consult an attorney experienced in civil law today to discuss the facts of your complaint. Please understand that it may take several months or longer after you provide all of the necessary information to your local law enforcement agency to determine if criminal charges can and should be filed. Your local investigators are involved in assessing and investigating many complaints each day, and complex economic crimes require additional time to assess, evaluate and investigate. If Court orders are needed to obtain documents, it will take at least an additional sixty days to do so. Thank you for your patience in this process. Please contact the Director of Consumer Protection, John Skoglund, or his assistant at if you need assistance to complete this Complaint Form. THANK YOU, ECONOMIC CRIME UNIT 18 TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT ATTORNEY S OFFICE SERVING ARAPAHOE, DOUGLAS, ELBERT AND LINCOLN COUNTIES Page 1 of 5
