Good morning. At this point, you need to retain a criminal defense attorney who can represent you and start looking into the facts of the case. It is odd that they just charged and arrested you now for something that is 6+ years old, so you need to have this investigated. You shared that you do not know anything about this or ever doing it and the charges are very serious so it could be an issue about mistaken identity and they arrested and charged the wrong person. A demand for discovery would be made and the State would have to turn over all the evidence which they have, so you would get more details about the basis for all of this.

I have the charge and it was in Douglas county Colorado the only time I was there was to give a car title to a person I met it was for a car I sold him it was my sons car

It is odd. It is possible someone has the same name as you and they charged the wrong person. You need to hire an attorney who can speak with the State about this and have them look into what this is based upon.
