Other class 2 misdemeanor facts in Colorado

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.

Even though class 2 misdemeanors are not considered as egregious as felonies, some of them are considered deportable offenses or crimes involving moral turpitude. Consequently, aliens convicted of certain class 2 misdemeanors may be vulnerable to deportation.
