What Are Colorado’s Penalties For Assault?

Below is an overview of assault charges and their potential penalties:

  • First-degree assault: If convicted, you could face a Class 3 felony, with a potential prison term of 10 to 32 years and fines of up to $750,000.
  • Second-degree assault: This Class 4 felony could result in a sentence of five to 16 years in prison and fines reaching $500,000.
  • Third-degree assault: As a Class 1 misdemeanor, a conviction might lead to up to 24 months in jail and fines up to $5,000.

For noncitizens, a lesser-known consequence of an assault conviction is being subject to removal proceedings. The state often seeks harsh penalties – including deportation – but having a determined lawyer in your corner can change the game. We work relentlessly to ensure you receive the lightest available sentence. Our criminal defense lawyers explore every avenue, from negotiating the dismissal of your charges and negotiating a plea bargain for a reduced sentence to representing you in a trial.
