Gang Charges and Penalties in Colorado

When facing gang-related charges in Colorado Springs, experienced legal representation can profoundly impact the outcome. These allegations bring severe penalties and complex prosecutorial tactics aimed at proving affiliation.

For the accused, the stakes could not be higher. Prosecutors often lean on inflated allegations of gang membership to stack serious felony charges against defendants.

Here’s a breakdown of gang charges and penalties in Colorado:


Statute Potential Penalties


C.R.S. 18-17-104 (felony)

8-24 years in prison, up to $1 million fine

Intimidating a Witness

C.R.S. 18-8-704 (felony)

2-6years in prison

Aggravated Robbery (1st offense)

C.R.S. 18-4-302 (felony)

4-16 years in prison

Ethnic Intimidation C.R.S. 18-9-121 (misdemeanor)

Up to 364 days in jail

A conviction on gang enhancements can add decades behind bars compared to non-affiliation versions of the same crimes. Even low-level involvement can lead to stiff sentences.

Facing these allegations without experienced legal guidance is extremely high risk. Hiring an assertive advocate who knows how to contest shaky evidence of gang ties and negotiate better pleas is essential.

Strategizing Your Gang Charges Defense

If retained, our first priority will be thoroughly scrutinizing the prosecution’s claims and evidence. We will investigate for any flawed assumptions, misconduct, or openings to rebut. Mastering the nuances is key.

We’ll keep the legal focus on the written charges – not unproven affiliations. Avoiding distraction by inflated gang allegations maintains an emphasis on the law’s boundaries.
Any supposed proof of membership must withstand meticulous cross-examination. We’ll contextualize tattoos, contacts, and photos, introducing reasonable doubt wherever possible.

Plea bargains may be pursued if advantageous given the circumstances. Sometimes, overreaching gang accusations can be neutralized through negotiation. If convicted, viable appeals will be identified and rigorously pursued. Technical defects, rights issues, unreasonable verdicts – any argument to overturn or reduce.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is considered a gang under Colorado law?

Colorado uses an expansive definition of a criminal gang. Essentially, any group of individuals with identifiable signs like symbols and nicknames can qualify, regardless of how organized or permanent they are. This low threshold helps prosecutors pursue charges.

Can charges apply without proven membership?

No hard proof is needed. Mere suspicion of affiliation based on circumstantial evidence like contacts and social media activity is enough for prosecutors to seek harsh gang sentencing enhancements. Actual documented membership is not required.

Is just being in a gang illegal?

Simply being in a gang is not a crime per se in Colorado. But prosecutors can introduce any evidence of gang ties to portray a criminal purpose behind other charges like conspiracy. So, membership alone won’t lead to conviction, but it can strengthen the prosecution’s case overall.
