Proven Results for All Types of Domestic Violence Cases in Colorado

Domestic violence charges are not always brought on by an act of physical violence. Colorado states that domestic abuse is an act, attempted act, or threat of violence committed against someone with whom you have an intimate relationship. An intimate relationship is defined as one with a person you have lived with or are related to you by blood or marriage.

The following acts can be considered to be domestic violence:

  • Acts of establishing control over someone else
  • Acts of punishment, intimidation, or coercion
  • Acts of instilling fear in another person
  • Use of emotional or verbal abuse
  • Revenge against a former or current partner
  • Threatening or harassing phone calls
  • Threatening to harm a person, a person's animals, or their property

Can a Domestic Violence Case Be Dismissed in Colorado?

In Colorado, a domestic violence case can be dismissed under certain circumstances. However, whether or not a case will be dismissed depends on the specific details of the case and the discretion of the court.

In general, a domestic violence case may be dismissed if there is insufficient evidence to support the charges, if the alleged victim recants their statement or refuses to cooperate with the prosecution, or if there is a violation of the defendant's constitutional rights.

It is important to note that in some cases, a prosecutor may be unwilling to dismiss a domestic violence case, even if the alleged victim no longer wishes to pursue charges. This is because domestic violence is considered a serious crime and the prosecutor may believe that it is in the public's best interest to continue with the case.

Will I Go to Jail for First Time Assault in Colorado?

Whether or not you will go to jail for a first-time assault in Colorado will depend on several factors, including the specific circumstances of the assault, the severity of the injuries caused to the victim, and your criminal history.

Assault is a serious offense in Colorado, and even a first-time offender can face significant penalties. The punishment for assault can range from fines and probation to incarceration, depending on the severity of the assault and any aggravating factors present in the case.

For a first-time assault, where no serious bodily injury was caused, the penalty can range from a fine of up to $750 and up to 6 months in jail, to a fine of up to $5,000 and up to 3 years in prison, depending on the circumstances of the case.

However, it is important to note that each case is unique, and the court will consider many factors when determining the appropriate penalty. If you are facing assault charges in Colorado, it is important to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney who can advise you on your legal options and help you navigate the legal process.
