Felonies are the most serious criminal offenses. In Colorado, they range from Class One to Class Six, with Class One charges having the most significant penalties. Felony convictions can result in prison time in the Colorado Department of Corrections, and are followed by mandatory periods of parole. Sentences range from one year to life imprisonment or the death penalty.

Prison time isn’t the only thing you face if charged with a felony. Whether you serve time or not, a felony conviction remains with you for life, and can impact your rights regarding:

  • Voting
  • Traveling internationally
  • Owning and carrying firearms
  • Obtaining certain loans or grants
  • Parenting
  • Jury service
  • Immigration status

What’s more, with a felony conviction, you may find it harder to get a job, earn professional licenses, and obtain housing.
