Armed robbery is referred to as “aggravated” robbery under Colorado law. These charges can come into play whenever someone is accused of taking anything of value from another individual with the use of a deadly weapon or an object thought to be a deadly weapon.
While aggravated robbery charges are generally Class 3 felonies in Colorado, the charges will typically be elevated to a Class 2 felony if the theft of controlled substances was allegedly involved.
Assault & Battery
Assault and battery charges are often filed together, but these are distinct offenses under Colorado law. In fact, while battery (known as “menacing”) involves threats of serious bodily harm, assault refers to the act of causing serious bodily harm.
For both assault and battery in Colorado, the charges can be filed as misdemeanors or felonies. Typically, the use of a deadly weapon and/or an alleged victim suffering serious injuries will trigger more severe charges in these cases.
Kidnapping charges in Colorado are always felonies, with the severity of the charge depending on factors like (but not limited to) whether:
- A deadly weapon was involved.
- Other crimes, like robbery or rape, were involved in the alleged offense.
- The alleged victim was ultimately liberated and, if so, the victim’s condition at that time.
No matter what level felony is associated with kidnapping charges, it’s important to remember that there can be various ways to defend the accused in these cases.
Murder & Manslaughter
As the most serious criminal charges in Colorado, murder and manslaughter cases can be as complicated, and they put a lot on the line—including the possibility of life in prison or possibly even the death penalty.
Gun and weapons charges can range from misdemeanor to felony offenses, depending on the criminal history of the accused, the firearm in question, where the firearm was allegedly found, and more. Like so many other violent crime charges, a simple misunderstanding—or merely being in the wrong place at the wrong time—can be enough to lead to serious weapons charges in some cases.
