Colorado takes domestic violence very seriously. The potential penalties for a domestic violence charge can be high, and you should understand the risks you face if police charge you with domestic violence in Colorado.
Domestic violence is an unfortunate reality in many relationships. A report from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence found that one out of every four women will at one point or another experience domestic abuse in her lifetime.
Domestic violence, unfortunately, happens quite often. In 2016 alone, more than 18,000 people in Colorado complained to the police about a domestic violence incident.
