Menacing in Denver, Colorado, 18-3-206, Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you've been involved in an argument, the police will often charge you with menacing. This crime is charged as both a misdemeanor and a felony. The elements include:

  • Any threat or physical action, which knowingly places or attempts to place another person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury.

If involving a deadly weapon, it is a Class 5 felony

If not involving a deadly weapon, it is a Class 3 misdemeanor

C.R.S. 18-3-206. If you have been charged with menacing as a result of threats you allegedly uttered or actions you are accused of (such as waving a gun or knife at someone), you are strongly encouraged to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible for menacing charges in Arapahoe, Adams, Jefferson, Douglas and other counties in Colorado.
