DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: MISDEMEANOR OR FELONY
In Colorado, domestic violence may be charged as a misdemeanor (a physical push, slap, or threat, for instance) or as a felony if the abuse causes severe or long-term injury. Regardless of the charge, you will need legal assistance from criminal defense lawyers.
