People facing class 2 misdemeanor charges in Colorado have the constitutional right to a jury trial of six people. (With the court's approval, the defendant may elect to have a bench trial or a smaller jury of five, four, or three jurors.) Depending on the circumstances of the case, the defendant may be able to have the criminal case sealed from his/her record.
