Trial Process



There are three trial divisions within the Denver Juvenile Court System:

  • 2H - Judge Karen Ashby
  • 2F - Judge David Brett Woods
  • 2E - Judge Donna J. Schmalberger
All three juvenile courtrooms are located on the second floor of the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse which is located at 520 W. Colfax Avenue.

Most of the juvenile criminal trials that take place in Denver are trials to the court. This means that the case is heard by a juvenile judge rather than a jury. A trial to the court must be held within 60 days of the juvenile's plea of not guilty.
