Colorado Assault Charges and Penalties
Assault related offenses in Colorado may vary greatly in degree and punishment. For example, first degree assault can be charged as a class 3 felony if the defendant intentionally causes serious bodily injury, often by use of a deadly weapon. In this case, a conviction may carry up to 12 years of incarceration and up to a $750,000 fine.
Assault and menacing are separate but similar crimes in the state of Colorado. Menacing occurs when you knowingly place or attempt to put someone in fear of serious bodily injury. In other words, it is the creation of an imminent threat of an assault. Sometimes the lines can be blurred between a felony assault charge that carries prison time, and a misdemeanor menacing charge for which defendants often receive a minimal jail sentence and probation. Prosecutors often try to charge defendants with the worst possible offense to trick you into thinking a plea to a lesser offense is a good deal. The attorneys at Weber Law have the experience and legal acumen to identify weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case to ensure you receive the best possible result. We fight to win your case.
