All felony drug cases have been put in special classes ranging from D1 to D4. The lower the number associated with the crime, the more serious the offense is perceived to be. For example, a DF1 crime involves a large quantity of Schedule I or Schedule II substances that are being distributed. The amount will either be four or eight ounces depending on which drug is involved, except with marijuana, where there must be a minimum of 2.5 pounds to be classified as a D1 offense. Conviction of a DF1 offense will be met with a mandatory prison sentence ranging from 8 to 32 years. D2 and D3 offenses would involve the distribution of smaller amounts and lesser penalties.
DF4 charges have undergone the most changes with the new laws in place. Conviction of a DF4 now requires a sentencing court to exhaust all treatment and rehabilitation options before an offender can be sent to prison. Possession of more than 12 ounces of marijuana is considered a DF4 offense that would meet the standards for treatment and rehabilitation before a prison sentence can be implemented.
Because the laws are fairly complicated, and offenders stand a chance of dealing with lesser penalties due to relaxed attitudes toward drugs in Colorado, it’s imperative to hire an experienced attorney to evaluate your case and help you to navigate through the myriad of potential charges and penalties you may be facing.
