Lawyer for Assault, C.R.S. 18-3-204, in Douglas County and all Colorado

Third Degree Assault, C.R.S. 18-3-204, in Denver, Arapahoe, and Douglas County is a serious misdemeanor crime with serious consequences. You need the involvement an aggressive criminal defense attorney in protecting your future. Assault is defined in the State of Colorado as "knowingly or recklessly causing bodily injury to another person." In other words, if the other person says to the police they felt pain (bodily injury), you will likely be arrested on 3rd Degree Assault charges. Read how this Assault Charge is Clogging Denver Courts.

Three Different Assault Classifications

The crime of Assault in Adams, Broomfield and Jefferson County will be charged as either First degree, C.R.S. 18-3-202, Second degree, C.R.S. 18-3-203, or Third degree, C.R.S. 18-3-204. The degree of charges is based upon who was injured and how serious the injury was. If you are accused of hurting another person, you will need a lawyer in the Denver metro area or across Colorado to help you fight the charges. An experienced attorney will help you maintain your rights, fight against the government, and reduce charges and penalties at sentencing.

Overcharging is Part of the DA Strategy

The District Attorneys in Boulder, Elbert and El Paso County will routinely overcharge someone with a crime. When our clients deal with overcharged allegations, we attack the evidence and conduct our own investigation. This allows for our lawyers to obtain better outcomes for our clients. The District Attorney is much less likely to pursue charges that won't stick at trial. Thus, our clients get a victory over the false allegations of the police. But this tactic is not limited to Assault. We consistently employ the same process with charges like Sexual Assault on a Child (C.R.S. 18-6-403), Menacing (C.R.S. 18-3-206) and Driving Under the Influence (DUI: C.R.S. 42-4-1301).

Mandatory Minimum Prison Sentences for Felony Assault

If you are convicted of 1st Degree Assault, or 2nd degree Assault, you will be facing a minimum mandatory prison sentence. In other words, if you plead guilty to or are found guilty 1st or 2nd degree Assault, then you will be going to the Department of Corrections in Colorado for a minimum of five years. The government will use this minimum mandatory sentence to intimidate a person into pleading to a crime they didn't commit. Without a criminal defense lawyer in Arvada, Centennial and Castle Rock working on your case, you could be convicted of a crime you didn't commit.

So, if you or a loved one have been charged with Assault, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent and call our lawyers at 303-731-0719, today. Together, we can protect your future.
