Menacing Defense Lawyer in Denver
Understanding the Charge Against You
According to Colorado Revised Statute §§ 18-3-202, 18-3-206,
menacing is different from assault in that assault requires actual physical
contact to occur, while menacing does not. In other words, assault is
intentionally causing someone physical harm while menacing is simply threatening
to cause them that same harm. Like all assault crimes, menacing could
potentially be considered a felony and subject you to serious legal consequences
if you are convicted.
When you are facing charges of menacing, it is important that you obtain
experienced legal representation that can help protect you against your
accusations. At the Law Offices of David L. Owen, Jr., P.C., I, Attorney

Penalties You Could Face
Menacing can vary between misdemeanor and felony charges depending on the
nature of the crime. In simple menacing cases, the charge is a class three
misdemeanor. However, if a deadly weapon, such as a gun or a knife is
involved, you could be facing class five felony charges.
Penalties for menacing can include:
- Fines between $50 and $100,000
- Jail time (up to six months for a misdemeanor, up to three years for a felony)
- Possible loss of rights
- Permanent criminal record
With so much on the line, it is not advised that you attempt to represent
yourself in court. I am available for immediate jail visits if necessary,
and even offer same-day appointments in emergency situations.
