Crimes in Colorado

There are three categories of criminal charges in Colorado: infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies. Infractions are minor offenses, typically traffic offenses, whose penalties are only a small fine.

A misdemeanor charge is an intermediate crime typically punishable by up to one year in county jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

Misdemeanors include several types of crimes such as:

  • Theft;
  • Vandalism;
  • Public intoxication; and
  • Drug possession.

Not all misdemeanors require jail time. However, depending on the crime, misdemeanor punishments may include:

  • Probation;
  • Driver’s license suspension;
  • Community service; and
  • Restitution.

Felonies are the most serious crimes in Colorado, with possible punishment of incarceration in state prison, fines of up to $150,000, and even the death penalty.

Examples of felonies are:

  • Murder;
  • Rape;
  • Robbery; and
  • Arson.

A felony conviction can strip a person of their ability to vote, possess firearms, and hold certain types of employment.

Expungement or Sealing of Criminal Records

Some criminal offenses can be expunged in Colorado. The rules pertaining to expungements are complex and best discussed on a case-by-case basis with a criminal defense attorney.
