What Could Happen To Me?
When clients come to us facing an assault charge, they are often most worried about a conviction leading to jail time. However, there are a number of other consequences you may face besides jail time, including:
- Anger management courses and therapy: These courses and therapies can be a huge commitment of time and money with a significant impact on your day-to-day life.
- Probation and fines: These typically last about two years and can cost thousands of dollars.
- Mandatory protection orders: Anytime an assault is reported, a mandatory protection order is put in place. Under this order the alleged assailant cannot be within 100 yards of the victim or the victim’s house (even if it is the assailant’s home) nor can he or she drink alcohol. This order lasts from the moment of the event until the end of probation, unless it is modified.
We Can Help With Mandatory Sentences
Crimes of violence often carry mandatory sentencing requirements in Colorado. This means that depending on the degree of your assault charge, you could be facing anywhere from two to 32 years in jail or prison. There are always options to avoid mandatory sentencing, but if you or your loved one has already been convicted, our firm has successfully filed submissions for re-sentencing within the first 126 days of the imposition of a jail sentence.
