How Serious is a Misdemeanor in Colorado?

In Colorado, general, drug, and traffic misdemeanors are put into two categories:
  • Class 1 Misdemeanors: This is the most serious type of misdemeanor in Colorado and can be punishable by up to 365 days in county jail and fines up to $1,000. Examples of a class 1 misdemeanor include theft of property, criminal mischief, unlawful sexual contact, and violation of a protection order. Additionally, if you’re charged with a class 1 misdemeanor against a first responder or healthcare professional, you will serve a minimum of two years in jail. 
  • Class 2 Misdemeanors: If you’ve been accused of a class 2 misdemeanor in Colorado, you can be facing up to 120 days in county jail and fines of up to $750.

Other types of misdemeanors include unclassified, drug, and traffic misdemeanors. These will carry their own sentencing and fine maximums and be classified under one of the two classes.

What You Can Expect from a Colorado Misdemeanor Sentencing

While there are maximum jail sentences for misdemeanors in Colorado, not every individual charged with a misdemeanor will end up spending time behind bars. Judges typically reserve jail time to repeat offenders or for cases that have shown violence or risk of harm. Of course, this doesn’t mean this is true for every case.
Other sentencing alternatives might be issued even if a judge doesn’t impose jail time. Punishments like:
  • Probation
  • Deferred Sentencing
  • Home Detention
  • Community Service

Every case is different, so hiring the right criminal defense lawyer is going to be crucial in your goal to stay out of jail if convicted of a misdemeanor.

Success Stories

Hear what our clients have to say
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!
