Municipal Court Offense
Municipal courts throughout the Denver metro area, and statewide, are courts of limited jurisdiction. These limited jurisdiction courts preside over cases involving alleged violations of the city's ordinances. Violations, which are most often prosecuted, include traffic offenses; disturbances of the peace; minors in possession of tobacco, drugs, or alcohol; theft; curfew violations; domestic violence; and animal cases which occur in the city limits.
Penalties for these violations may involve fines and/or jail time. Depending upon the offense and/or jurisdiction, penalties can be assessed as high as $999.00 or a jail sentence of up to one year, or both.
