Menacing

Denver Menacing Lawyer

Menacing in Colorado is a serious crime. If you have been charged with menacing, you need a qualified criminal defense attorney on your side. A conviction of felony menacing may result in penalties such as incarceration and large fines. Gregory Mitchell of The Mitchell Law Firm has successfully represented countless residents of Colorado who have been charged with felony menacing.

Colorado Statue Felony Menacing 18-3-206

According to Colorado law:
“A person commits the crime of menacing if, by any threat or physical action, he knowingly places or attempts to place another person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury.” Menacing is a class 3 misdemeanor, but it is a class 5 felony if committed:

  • With the use of a deadly weapon or any article used or fashioned in a manner that causes a person to believe that the article is a deadly weapon
  • By a person who either brandishes or verbally states that he or she is armed with a deadly weapon

One essential element of both types of menacing charges is the specific intent to cause fear in a victim. You do not need to actually harm the victim to be charged with menacing. Also, it is not necessary for a victim to be aware of a threat or experience fear to be charged.

An experienced Colorado criminal defense attorney like Gregory Mitchell is determined to get your charges reduced or possibly dismissed, but you must contact The Mitchell Law Firm as soon as possible.
