Understanding Assault Charges

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.

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
