Aurora, CO asked in Criminal Law for Colorado

Q: What Happens If I was court order to have fingerprints done within 14 days but I didn’t not make it in that time period?

I didn’t receive this court order until October 19 but it was ordered on October 08 and I went to the police station and the lady notified me I only had 14 days -and not one more day (which is how it states in the order) from the day it was signed but it was already the 23rd (a day late)

A: It does not matter. Given the effect of the Pandemic on the Colorado court system - the Judge will have no problem as long as they are done and filed with the court. Don't worry - this is very common. Best

A: I agree with Mr. Steinberg. It has been very difficult during the pandemic to coordinate anything, let alone things that must occur in person. As long as you get it done, you should be fine. The Courts are highly unlikely to issue an arrest warrant for being slightly untimely in getting fingerprints taken. Please contact your lawyer immediately to resolve the issue, and you should be fine.
