What to Expect After Being Accused of Assault in Colorado

If you’ve been accused of assault, it’s important that you know to what degree you’re being charged. There are three types of assault, first, second, and third-degree.
  • 1st Degree: First-degree assault is a felony. If you’re being accused of first-degree assault, you’re being accused of having caused severe bodily injury to someone using a deadly weapon, knowingly engaged in deadly or seriously harmful actions, intentionally causing disfigurement of another person, or threatening a police officer or firefighter with a weapon with intent to harm. 
  • 2nd Degree: While not as serious as first-degree assault, being accused of second-degree assault can still mean facing serious consequences since it’s also considered a felony charge. Second-degree charges are brought on by similar actions to first-degree assault, but also include exposing a detention facility employee to any kind of body fluid with the intent to cause bodily harm. 
  • 3rd Degree: Third-degree assault is Colorado’s least serious assault charge. It’s considered a class 1 misdemeanor and is typically associated with bar fights or other physical altercations that don’t end in severe bodily harm. 
These different types of charges will bring on their own consequences, and without the proper legal defense, your penalties can wreak havoc on your life.

Harassment in Colorado

Harassment is considered a class 2 misdemeanor, or a class 1 if it involves physical contact in Colorado. You could be charged with harassment if you do any of the following with the intent of annoying, alarming, or harassing another person:
  • Subject another individual to unwanted or unprovoked physical contact
  • Direct obscene gestures of language to another person in a public place 
  • Follow a person in or around a public place
  • Continue to communicate with a person even though they’ve made it clear that they don’t wish to have contact with
  • Continue to insult, taunt, challenge, or communicate aggressively 
If accused of harassment, you could be facing petty offense or misdemeanor charges. However, in Colorado, harassment of another person due to their race, religion, or disability could result in up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

about our firm.
I am so thankful I called Liberty Law Center. The amount of knowledge and dedication that comes from Valerie is next to none. She helped me understand the entire process. Made me feel like I was not alone. It took me 15-plus years to deal with my issue. Now as it gets resolved I have a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and I owe it all to Valerie. Mr. Beck has put together an amazing team.
Divorce is never easy and mine was not. I hired Drake Larson due to the incompetence of another attorney so I was already distraught with the entire situation. Drake assured me he would get to the facts of my case and get control of the situation and figure out the best way to a fair outcome. To make a long story short after 10 months we finally went to the Judge today. Let me assure you that Mr. Larsen was confident, well-versed, prepared, and went above and beyond my expectations. To whoever is reading this take my advice and hire Drake Larsen if you need expert representation.
I am beyond thankful for this incredible group of people, especially Bill Beck and his awesome sidekick Valerie. They’ve been with me through the (year-long) court process at every step, and have provided nothing but compassion, clarity, guidance, support, and in the end, a big victory thanks to Mr. Beck’s above-and-beyond efforts. Do yourself a massive favor and hire this team!!
Drake Larson was a wonderful Lawyer. He is very knowledgeable in his field. If he didn't know the answer to some very off the wall situations, he would research and get back to me quickly. He was very professional but also personable. He made me feel comfortable and confident in my case and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome. I highly recommend Drake.
Can't say enough about this amazing team! Both Bill and Valerie were a huge support in helping with our case and I can't thank them enough for everything they did from start to finish! Valerie is amazing with follow up and always made us feel like we could call her about anything we had questions about or needed help with. Very professional team and we highly recommend Liberty Law Center!
