Areas of Practice
Felony charges in Colorado fall into six basic categories, from Class 6 charges up to the highest level, Class 1 felony offenses. Regardless the level of offense charged, being the subject of a felony prosecution is at the moment the single most important thing in your life. If not properly handled, a felony charge becomes a life altering event with many negative aspects. But, a felony charge does not have to be, and should not become, the defining moment in your life.
In Colorado, a major revision of the controlled substance laws went into effect in the last few years. This long overdue, forward-thinking statutory revision emphasizes drug education and treatment, and de-emphasizes long-term incarceration. However, it would be a mistake not to realize that Colorado drug laws continue to provide for very significant consequences, even prison terms, for controlled substance convictions. Drug Felony convictions can carry penalties up to thirty-two years while Drug Misdemeanors carry up to eighteen months incarceration.
In the state of Colorado, an allegation of Domestic Violence, under the criminal code, "piggybacks" on a separate charged offense -- a charge such as Harassment, Third Degree Assault, or Criminal Mischief. Those three are very common underlying charges in Domestic Violence cases. However, practically any offense in the Colorado criminal code can be coupled with a charge of Domestic Violence -- anything from a petty offense to a serious felony -- so long as the people involved are or were domestic partners.
