Misdemeanor crimes in Colorado are divided into three separate classes, depending upon the severity of the potential punishment involved. "Class One" misdemeanors are the most severe, and carry a potential penalty of up to eighteen months imprisonment, or a five thousand dollar fine, or both. The maximum time of imprisonment may be increased beyond the stated eighteen months for crimes that are considered "extraordinary risk crimes", as defined by statute.

"Class Two" misdemeanors carry a maximum penalty of up to twelve months imprisonment, or a one thousand dollar fine, or both. "Class Three" misdemeanors carry up to six months imprisonment or a seven hundred fifty dollar fine, or both.

Some misdemeanor offenses, by statute, do not specify a particular potential punishment and/or fine. With regard to these types of offenses, the potential maximum penalty is imprisonment for not more than one year in the county jail and a fine not to exceed one thousand dollars, or both.

In addition to incarceration and/or fines, a defendant who is convicted of a class one, two, or three misdemeanor offense may also be required to complete a certain number of community service hours. Community service hours may involve work, which is beneficial to private or public nonprofit groups, the public in general, or public entities.

Sentences for misdemeanor convictions are not served in state correctional facilities, unless they are served concurrent with a term of imprisonment for a felony conviction.

Restitution will also typically be considered in association with a conviction resulting from plea bargaining or trial of a misdemeanor offense.

Client Reviews
"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda
"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve
"I hired Monte J. Robbins to represent me. He gave 110% to my case never rushed me off the phone, quick to gather all information regarding my case. Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
