Penalties for Driving Crimes in Denver
Major traffic offenses can cost you time in jail and thousands of dollars in fines, even for a first offense. For instance, driving with a revoked license can lead to up to a year in jail for a first offense, and up to $1,000 in fines.
Leaving the scene of an accident with any property damage, however small, is also a serious traffic crime. You can face up to 18 months in jail and up to $5,000 in fines. If the case is severe enough to be a felony-level charge, you can face one to 12 years in prison and up to $750,000 in fines.
Vehicular homicide and vehicular assault are also serious driving crimes in Colorado. Criminal charges can be life-altering, including years in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines.
