Why You Need to Hire a Lawyer When Facing a Misdemeanor

Since misdemeanors are not as serious as felonies, many individuals facing the former avoid hiring an attorney or ignore their charges altogether. Unfortunately, getting convicted of a misdemeanor can cause irreparable damage to your personal life and professional reputation.

For example, a misdemeanor conviction is punishable by jail time, fines, license suspension, and other harsh penalties. Misdemeanors in Colorado can carry terms of up to 2 years in jail.

The following are the types of misdemeanors in Colorado and their associated penalties:

  • Class 1 Misdemeanor – Punishable by a maximum 24-month jail term and a fine of up to $5,000.
  • Class 2 Misdemeanor – Punishably by a maximum 12-month jail sentence and a fine not exceeding $1,000.
  • Class 3 Misdemeanor – Punishable by a maximum six-month jail term and a fine no more than $750.
  • Traffic Misdemeanors – There are two types of traffic misdemeanors: Class 1 and Class 2. A Class 1 misdemeanor carries a maximum one-year jail sentence and a fine of up to $1,000, while a Class 2 misdemeanor results in a maximum 90-day jail term and a fine no more than $300.

Furthermore, getting convicted of a misdemeanor also leads to a permanent criminal record. Having a conviction on your record can make it hard to get a job, find housing, apply for college, or take advantage of other opportunities life has to offer.
