In Colorado, crimes are classified as felonies or misdemeanors depending on how serious they are. The longest punishment that can be given for a misdemeanor is 24 months in a local jail. A felony is any offense that carries a sentence of at least one year and up to life in prison. In 2020, Colorado repealed the death penalty.
Colorado has two felony sentencing guidelines that have undergone numerous changes throughout the years: one for drug offenses and one for all other offenses.
