Q: In Colorado what is 18cr2885 or how do I find this charge
El Paso county
18CR2885 is a case number. The 18 reflects the year filed (2018), the CR refers to a felony "criminal case" (misdemeanor cases use an "M"), and the 2885 reflects the actual case number (it actually means it would have been the 2885 felony filed in that jurisdiction).
Title 18 of the Colorado Revised Statutes is the criminal code. Individual sections then correspond with a criminal charge. The citation generally follows this example: C.R.S. Section 18-3-101.
If you can provide the actual statutory citation, then it would be easy to tell you what has been charged.
I wish you the best.
A: That is a criminal case number relating to a specific defendant, not a criminal statute.
