Criminal Defense | Denver Colorado | Attorney Michael Carter
If you have been charged with a criminal offense in Colorado, the consequences can be permanent, and may affect every area of your life. Criminal convictions can make it difficult to find work and housing, and can make it difficult to participate in government programs. Given the severity of the potential consequences, it is very important that you have the best possible understanding of your situation. For this reason, it is critical that you speak with an experienced Denver criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
The first thing that you need to understand when charged with a crime is whether you have been charged with a felony or a misdemeanor, and the difference between these two. The simplest way to think of it may be that a felony is considered to be more serious than a misdemeanor, and as such, the consequences upon conviction are more severe. As an example, if convicted of a misdemeanor, and incarceration sentenced would be served in a county jail, as opposed to a prison if convicted of a felony. Perhaps more importantly, the amount of time to be served will be longer for a felony than for a misdemeanor.
If you have been charged with any crime in Colorado, you need a dedicated, experienced criminal defense attorney to explain your options, and to work with you to defend your rights as you move through the criminal justice system.
