What Is a Violent Crime?

In Colorado, a violent crime involves the threat or use of force upon a victim. These offenses often include the use or threat of using a deadly weapon and typically result in serious bodily injury or death to another. Whether the violent act is the objective or the means to an end, it is classified as a crime of violence.

There are several offenses that qualify as violent crimes, including:

  • Certain sex offenses
  • Arson
  • Kidnapping
  • Murder
  • First or second-degree assault
  • Burglary
  • Crimes against at-risk individuals
  • Criminal extortion
  • Escape

Sentencing for Violent Crimes in Colorado

Crimes of violence carry much harsher penalties than most other crimes. If convicted of a violent crime, an offender must be sentenced to at least the midpoint of the range for such an offense and can be penalized up to twice the ordinary maximum.

For example, if someone commits second-degree assault, he or she would ordinarily be sentenced to two to six years imprisonment. However, if the attack involved a deadly weapon, it is considered a violent crime and punishable by four to 12 years in prison.
