Other level 2 drug misdemeanor facts in Colorado

Defendants facing level 2 drug misdemeanor charges in Colorado are entitled to a jury trial of six people. (With the court's approbation, the defendant may elect to have a bench trial instead or a smaller jury of no less than three people.) Depending on the circumstances of the case, the defendant might be able to have the drug case sealed from his/her criminal record.

Although Colorado level 2 drug misdemeanors and Colorado level 1 drug misdemeanors are not as harshly punished as felonies, some of them might be considered deportable offenses or crimes involving moral turpitude. Consequently, non-citizens facing certain level 2 drug misdemeanors charges should speak with an immigration and criminal defense attorney about how to try to protect their resident status in the U.S.
