Colorado, a case that questions Colorado’s practice of not refunding court and other fees to people who are convicted of crimes that are later reversed.

This case involves two defendants Shannon Nelson and Louis Alonzo Madden who were both convicted of sexual assault and ordered to pay court costs, fees and restitution. Nelson paid over $700, Madden over $4000. Both convictions were later reversed.

In Colorado, a person convicted of a crime that is later exonerated is not entitled to a refund. They must file a separate civil suit to prove they are actually innocent of the underlying criminal charge by clear and convincing evidence.

A decision in this case is expected by June.
