In Colorado, there are three classes of misdemeanor offenses.
The table below shows the possible sentence for each class:
Extraordinary Risk Crimes
Some Class One Misdemeanors are labeled as “Extraordinary Risk Crimes,” which increases the maximum sentence the judge may give you. Extraordinary Risk Crimes include, but are not limited to, Child Abuse, Third Degree Assault, Unlawful Sexual Contact, and Violation of Restraining Order (only for second or subsequent offenses).
Some convictions carry specific sentencing requirements, unique to that type of charge. For example, a domestic violence conviction results in mandatory domestic violence classes. For a DUI conviction, doing alcohol classes is the only way to avoid mandatory jail.
