What are the Penalties for Assault in Colorado?

The charge of assault in Colorado is broken down by three degrees:

  • Third degree assault: This is a misdemeanor and carries up to two years in prison. This offense is classified by an act or acts that intentionally cause injury to another person. No physical injury need be observable, however, pain by itself can constitute injury.
  • Second degree assault: Several definitions can be found for this charge—an intentional or reckless act of aggression with a deadly weapon which injures another. This is a fourth degree felony and carries with it between five and eight years in prison.
  • First degree assault: An individual who is found to have intended to harm, disfigure, or disable another, or acted "with extreme indifference to the value of human life" can be charged with first degree assault. Such a crime is a third degree felony which carries between 10 and 16 years in jail.

If you have been accused of assaulting someone, but believe you acted in self-defense, you need to present evidence to the court that you attempted to protect yourself. You must show, however, that you only used appropriate force to mitigate a perceived threat.
