Misdemeanors are crimes that are less serious in nature than felonies. However, it is important to know that misdemeanors can result in significant fines and jail time. The maximum penalties are 24 months in the county jail and a $5,000 fine.

Just as importantly, a misdemeanor conviction in Colorado can remain on your record for life. This can have a negative impact on you and your family, including affecting your ability to get into college, get a job, or buy a home. It can also affect your immigration status. Consequently, it is important to talk with a criminal defense lawyer before you take any action regarding your misdemeanor charge.
