How does adult sentencing work in Colorado?

Colorado residents may benefit from learning more about the state's sentencing laws for adults. While operating within statutory parameters, judges are permitted to use their own discretion when sentencing a defendant. Sentencing laws are often complicated because there may be multiple levels affected by different criteria. In Colorado, six classes constitute the hierarchy of felony offenses.

Colorado pair arrested after shots fired

Police took two individuals into custody on Sept. 6 after shots were allegedly fired. No injuries were reported from the incident or initial altercation. According to reports, police performing a DUI stop nearby responded to the scene after hearing multiple gunshots. The officers were said to have recovered bullet casings from the scene of the initial disturbance at approximately 3:30 a.m. on St. Elmo Court's 1800 block.

Authorities to file charges against impaired bus driver

After a Denver bus driver was taken into custody for allegedly ignoring a stop sign on Sept. 1 and driving while impaired, officials announced that they intend to file charges in the case. Although a misdemeanor charge was originally filed, prosecutors withdrew that charge with the intention of filing a felony charge. The driver is no longer working until the investigation is completed.

Elements of burglary in Colorado

In Colorado, prosecutors must prove a number of elements in order to secure a burglary conviction. The absence of any one of the elements means the crime of burglary has not occurred. The Colorado burglary law is similar to the Model Penal Code in that it requires proof of unlawful entry into a building or other occupied structure with criminal intent. Examining the parts of the definition reveals the elements that must be proved.

Woman accused in Colorado bank robbery

A warrant for the woman was filed in Montrose County Court two days after the robbery, and she faces two class four felony charges for theft and aggravated robbery. The penalty for a class four felony includes two to six years imprisonment.
