Defense Lawyer Subpoenas Docs Detailing Prosecutor’s Cash Bonuses for Convictions

A Colorado defense lawyer has filed a motion claiming a prosecutor’s policy of paying bonuses for convictions should result in her office’s ouster in his client’s case.
Public defender Stephen McCrohan won more time to subpoena documents about the bonuses in a hearing on Monday, the Denver Post reports. The motion is the first of many expected to challenge the bonus program created last year by District Attorney Carol Chambers of Arapahoe County.
