There are three categories of assault that we defend, including the following charges:
First-degree assault is the most serious type of assault crime per CRS § 18-3-202. It is charged when a person intends to cause serious bodily injury, disfigurement, or dismemberment, displays extreme indifference to human life, or knowingly employs conduct that creates a grave risk to life and causes serious bodily injury.
A conviction for first-degree assault carries significant penalties, including prison and jail time. Working with an experienced Greeley assault lawyer is the most proactive way to defend your rights.
Second-degree assault is considered less severe than first-degree assault, but it is still a felony under CRS § 18-3-203. It is usually charged when the assault is committed in the heat of the moment or during another felony.
Third-degree assault is a misdemeanor. It involves physical assault that results in bodily injury when committed knowingly and recklessly, as part of criminal negligence, or with a deadly weapon per CRS § 18-3-204.
In Colorado, many charges of assault, battery, or harassment are charged in conjunction with allegations of domestic violence. If you are facing domestic violence charges, work with an experienced Greeley assault lawyer who can truly protect your rights.
The legal consequences of an assault conviction affect your civil rights and personal opportunities. Since assault is a crime of violence, your record could precede you on a background check, even long after serving your sentence.
