Misdemeanor Vs. Felony Charges 

All crimes are not created equal. Misdemeanors are smaller and much less severe, though they still carry significant consequences. A felony is a much more serious charge as the seriousness of the crime committed in order for it to be considered a felony is usually severe. However, that’s not always the case. Sometimes, a simple error or technicality can change a minor or misdemeanor charge to a felony, and in cases like this, having the right legal counsel on your side can make a huge difference. 

Why You Need to Hire a Colorado Springs Felony Defense Attorney

If you’re being accused of a felony, it’s incredibly important that you seek out legal help. If you’re convicted of a felony, you’ll face restrictions for the rest of your life, including: 

  • The right to travel abroad
  • The right to vote (while incarcerated)
  • The right to possess firearms
  • The right to serve on a jury
  • Certain parental rights or benefits 
  • Eligibility for certain government assistance 
  • Eligibility for certain kinds of employment

Not only will you lose out on these rights, but a felony charge can mean years behind bars, or worse. On top of these and other consequences, felony convictions will also be added to your permanent record, and it can be hard, or impossible, to get it expunged. This can affect your access to employment, education, and other opportunities for the rest of your life. 

Colorado Felony Classifications and their Potential Penalties

In Colorado, there are six different classes of felonies. These come with their fines and potential time behind bars. 

  • Class 1 Felony: Results in Capital Punishment which can range from life in prison to death. This felony will not result in fines. 
  • Class 2 Felony: Fines of up to $1,000,000, 8 to 24 years behind bars, and five years of parole. 
  • Class 3 Felony: Fines of up to $750,000, 4 to 12 years behind bars, and five years of parole. 
  • Class 4 Felony: Fines of up to $500,000, 2 to 6 years behind bars, and three years of parole. 
  • Class 5 Felony: Fines of up to $100,000, one to 3 years behind bars, and two years of parole. 
  • Class 6 Felony: Fines of up to $100,00, 12 to 18 months behind bars, and one year of parole.

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.
