Violent Crimes

In Colorado, violent crimes are felony offenses that can result in lengthy mandatory prison sentences and severe court sanctions. It is important to remember that an arrest is not a conviction and that just because you were accused of committing an offense it does not mean that you will be found guilty of it.

If you were arrested for a violent crime, it is essential to obtain experienced and knowledgeable representation from a skilled Colorado violent crimes attorney.

A violent crime may result in injury or death and will be aggressively prosecuted in Colorado. Violent crimes include, but are not limited to, the following offenses:

  • Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Aggravated assault
  • Assault
  • Armed robbery
  • Robbery
  • Kidnapping
  • Forcible rape
  • Arson

When an individual uses a weapon in the commission of an offense, the charge will normally be elevated to a more serious offense. For example, if the accused uses a weapon during a robbery, the offense will be elevated from robbery to armed robbery. However, skilled, savvy legal representation may result in a dismissal or reduction of charges and a less severe case outcome.
