COLORADO SPRINGS MISDEMEANOR ATTORNEY

A Criminal Record Is Always Difficult To Explain

If you’re charged with a misdemeanor crime in Colorado Springs, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney at your side.  While misdemeanor crimes carry lighter penalties and are considered to be ‘lesser’ crimes than felonies, they are still crimes, and being convicted of a misdemeanor can lead to jail time and hefty fines, not to mention a criminal record that will impact your future.

An experienced misdemeanor attorney in Colorado Springs can help you avoid or lessen some penalties, such as time-consuming community service, psychotherapy, anger management classes, or traffic school, all of which impact your daily life. 

Having a strong criminal defense attorney on your team ensures you might not have to explain your criminal record every time you apply for a job, a lease, or mortgage, and provides the best chance to save your reputation.

How Misdemeanors Are Classified in Colorado

Class 1 Misdemeanors

Class 1 misdemeanors are considered the most serious crimes, such as assault, while Class 2 and Class 3 misdemeanors are considered to be less serious crimes, respectively.  In Colorado, drug charges are treated as a separate class of misdemeanors and have different stipulations.

Class 1 misdemeanors are punishable by 6 to 18 months in jail and a fine of $500 to $5,000 – or both!

Class 2 Misdemeanors

 A Class 2 misdemeanor carries a fine of $250 to $1,000, a jail sentence that ranges from three to twelve months, or both.  

Class 3 Misdemeanors

Class 3 misdemeanors are punishable by a fine of $50 to $750, a maximum of six months in jail, or both, and are the least serious of the misdemeanor crime categorizations.

Some samples of misdemeanor crimes in Colorado include computer crimes, obstructing a police officer, forgery, menacing, child abuse, theft, stalking, trespass, domestic violence, and prostitution.

What Are Misdemeanor Crimes?

Here are some of the more common misdemeanor crimes you can be charged for;

  • Careless Driving Resulting In Death
  • Forgery
  • False Imprisonment
  • Computer Crimes
  • Criminal Tampering
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Child Abuse
  • Stalking
  • Trespass
  • Domestic Violence
  • Prostitution
  • Third Degree Assault
  • Menacing
  • The Possession of Small Amounts Of Certain Drugs
  • Criminal Mischief
  • Obstructing A Peace Officer

Real Life Consequences

A misdemeanor conviction on your record can have a tremendous impact on your life, greatly limiting future opportunities.  If domestic violence is part of the picture, a conviction may preclude you from possessing a firearm.  If you’re in the military, it may well end your military career. 

Any type of misdemeanor conviction can also impact licensure procedures for professionals such as doctors, day care center workers, nurses, and teachers.  Misdemeanor convictions also make it difficult to obtain admission at an educational institution or get employment.
