Gay Panic Defense Has No Place in Colorado Criminal Law (Opinion)

By Mitch Morrissey

Colorado Politics quoted President Greenberg on ‘gay panic defense’ in an op ed.

Homophobia is an accepted defense that has been and is currently being used in Colorado courts.

That is wrong and contrary to our core values as a State. The use of the so-called “Gay Panic Defense” must be ended in the state of Colorado and across the United States.
