Penalties for Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is defined as an act or threatened an act of violence against an individual whom the defendant has an intimate relationship with – such as a spouse (current or former), partner, co-habitant, or co-parent. The act is done to coerce, control, intimidate, punish, or seek revenge against that person.

If an individual commits a crime of domestic violence in Colorado, it is punishable by the following:

  • Prison, jail, or probation – Your sentence will depend if the conviction is a misdemeanor or felony, as well as if you have any previous convictions. A misdemeanor may carry up to two years in jail, but it is possible to be eligible for probation, reducing the jail time to 60 days. A felony may be punishable by either one year to life in prison, but a person may be eligible for felony probation, which can reduce the jail time to 90 days
  • Domestic violence treatment programs – A person guilty of domestic violence may be sentenced to domestic violence treatment programs, as well as a treatment evaluation which conforms to the standards adopted by the domestic violence offender management board.
