John Oliver is a host of an HBO TV Series in which he points a critical finger at something in our society. This week, he featured an attack on Municipal Courts and how much of a financial racket it makes. I will warn you that he uses vulgar language to make his point. If swearing offends you, please do not watch this video readily available on the internet.
In Colorado it is clear that SOME Municipalities make a large percentage of their Municipal Revenues from these types of tickets. Many clients have been stating this for MANY years.
The problem is that many of my clients point out is how much “surcharges” are included in EVERY Felony and in every Misdemeanor in Colorado.
