It is important to note that Colorado courts often reduce a defendant’s penalties for a level 2 drug misdemeanor.
For example, they may receive the following:
- Probation of up to one year
- Up to 120 days in jail (or up to 180 days in jail for a third or higher offense)
- A fine of up to $500
Of course, each case is different, and mitigating and aggravating factors can affect your specific sentence.
