Felony Offenses

Felonies are the most serious criminal offenses, and range from Class One, the most serious, to Class Six, the least serious. Felony convictions can result in prison sentences in the Colorado Department of Corrections, the statewide prison system, and are followed by mandatory periods of parole. Possible prison sentences range from twelve months to natural life, depending on the crime. In very rare situations, the prosecution can seek the death penalty. Felony convictions not resulting in a prison sentence will almost always involve supervised probation (regular or intensively supervised) and could involve a county jail sentence. If a judge believes that a prison sentence is too harsh, but probation is too lenient, a sentence to a community corrections facility (halfway house) may be considered. A criminal history with a felony conviction may make it extremely difficult for one to obtain or maintain employment, and also difficult to secure suitable housing. These are just a few of the obstacles that a person with a felony conviction can encounter.
