While some types of crimes that cross state lines are prosecuted under federal laws, the vast majority of crimes are still tried under the jurisdiction of states. In Colorado, there are many types of crimes that can be tried at the state level that are felonies. While there are many others, some of the more common felonies include:
1. Murder and manslaughter
2. Drug possession and drug trafficking
3. Vehicular homicide
4. Rape and sexual assault
5. Human trafficking
8. Aggravated robbery
12. Identity theft
14. Money laundering
16. Theft over $1,000
17. Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
18. Hit and run with a serious injury
19. DUI with multiple offenses
20. Animal cruelty
21. Failure to register as a sex offender
Felonies are the most serious types of crimes and can result in long prison sentences of at least a year. Convictions can result in punishment of up to life in prison and in a few instances, the death penalty. Many times, these cases arise from violent crime being committed and can result in a long and high- profile trial. In many cases, mandatory sentencing guidelines will apply and can have a lifelong impact on the defendant if convicted. If you are charged with a felony, it is essential that you retain an attorney as soon as possible to begin preparing for a long and involved legal fight ahead.
