Don't Try To Fight A Felony Without An Attorney

A felony assault is a serious allegation that can have extreme consequences.  Under Colorado Law, assaults are classified by degree, with First Degree Assault being the most serious, followed by Second Degree Assault, and finally the misdemeanor charge of Third Degree Assault.  First Degree Assault is a class three felony crime of violence, carrying a mandatory penalty of 10 to 32 years in prison.

Second Degree Assault is a class four felony and may also be considered a crime of violence depending upon the circumstances in which it was charged.  A conviction for Second Degree Assault carries a presumptive sentence from anywhere between 2 to 16 years in prison.

If you find yourself charged with felony assault, it is crucial that you retain an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney at the earliest opportunity.  There are many defenses to felony assault charges, but the strength of your case, and perhaps even your freedom, depends upon collecting, preserving, and presenting the evidence in your favor as soon as possible.  Often witnesses memories will fade with time, and physical evidence can be lost or destroyed if not collected quickly.

The criminal defense lawyers at Rector Stuzynski LLC have experience handling tough felony assault cases, and have won numerous victories for their clients, ranging from plea deals to misdemeanor offenses and probation, to jury verdicts of not-guilty based on self-defense.

If you are being charged with a felony assault, do not wait to hire an attorney in the hopes that your case will simply be dismissed.  The justice system is not set up to dismiss cases or to be sympathetic to defendants accused of violent crimes.  An aggressive criminal defense lawyer with experience handling felony assault cases is your best bet to secure a favorable outcome in your case.
