Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered

Q. What is a ballpark fee for sealing a misdemeanor in Denver?
A: More information is needed to give you an estimate regarding this cost. The first step is ensuring that you qualify to petition the court to seal your record. For a misdemeanor, this would generally require an acquittal at trial, a dismissal prior to trial, or a successfully completed deferred judgment and sentence.
Q. Okay so I've already been sentenced to 90 days and I was supposed to turn myself in by 4 will I get more charges if not
A: You could get contempt of court charges but your bigger concern is that you will likely get more than your original 90 days. You should turn yourself in as soon as possible to minimize the possibility of a longer sentence.
Q. Is Assault 2-Drugging Victim classified as a crime of violence or is it per say not a crime of violence
A: 2nd Degree Assault- Drugging is not a crime of violence. You can see this in Colorado Revised Statutes 18-3-203.
Q. I live in Colorado. What would happen to me if the court revokes my deferred sentence? Do I have multiple options? Or?
A: If your deferred judgment is revoked, the judge can impose any sentence he/she could have originally imposed. If you are probation eligible, you could be sentenced to probation, to probation with jail, or straight jail.
Q. Driving without a Valid Driver's License in Colorado
A: If you reinstate your driving privilege prior to your court appearance, you will likely be offered a 0 point violation with a minimum fine and no further repercussions.
Q. I am facing a misdemeanor charge in Washington State, but I am here in Colorado. What should I do
A: A Colorado attorney cannot represent your interests in Washington unless he or she is licensed in WA. You need to contact an attorney based in Washington.
