Felony Lawyer

Northern Colorado Felony Lawyer

Serving Fort Collins, Loveland, and Larimer Counties

The most serious classification of a crime is a felony. Within a felony, there are six classifications that determine the severity of the crime. Class One Felonies are the most serious, and Class Six Felonies are the least serious. As a rule, individuals charged with felonies potentially face sentences ranging from one year to many years in state penitentiaries, including serving a sentence for life. In rare occurrences, the state can charge a criminal with the death penalty.

Some criminal charges carry mandatory jail or prison sentences. Still, this is not a foregone conclusion. Depending upon the charges, in many cases, it is very possible that prison time may be set aside in favor of probation or some other disposition appropriate for the facts of the case. Every case and defense is different, and you should always contact an experienced attorney as soon as you are charged with any crime.
