Prosecutors plan to file a felony trespassing charge against a Colorado woman who was shot in the hip after police say she drunkenly wandered into a home.
Prosecutors say they plan to file the charge next week against 21-year-old Zoey Ripple, who graduated from the University of Colorado this month.
Ripple's attorney Colette Cribari said Friday she's disappointed prosecutors plan to pursue charges.
Police say Ripple entered a couple's Boulder home around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday through an unlocked door. They told police Ripple ignored warnings that they had a gun and would use it if she didn't leave.
Prosecutors don't plan to file charges against the man who shot Ripple. Colorado law allows residents to use deadly force against trespassers who intend to use force.
