MISDemeanors and Traffic

As both a misdemeanor and traffic defense attorney and former Deputy District Attorney, Taggart H. Howard has handled hundreds of misdemeanor and traffic charges in Colorado. If you have recently been arrested and charged with any type of misdemeanor or traffic offense, contact Causey & Howard, LLC for a complimentary consultation.

Traffic infractions are the lesser violations that typically result in a simple traffic ticket. Traffic infractions include speeding (traveling less than 20 mph over the posted speed limit) and failure to stop for a red light or stop sign. Traffic infractions can negatively impact your driver’s license and your car insurance; especially if you have prior offenses on your driving history.

There are many misdemeanors and traffic offenses commonly charged in Colorado, all of which carry a potential sentence to county jail.

  • Third Degree Assault
  • Harassment
  • Menacing
  • Criminla Mischief
  • False Imprisonment
  • Domestic Violence
  • Assult on a Peace Officer
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Obstructing a Peace Officer
  • Theft / Shoplifting
  • Child Abuse
  • Reckless Endangerment
  • Illegal Weapons Offenses
  • Minor In Possession
  • Driving Under Restraint ('DUR")
  • Driving Under Suspension ('DUS")
  • Habitual Traffic Offender
  • Careless driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Eluding a police officer

A Driving Under Restraint charge (where the license was restrained for a prior alcohol offense), for instance, can carry up to one year in jail; and, thirty days is the minimum mandatory amount of jail time that will be imposed by the Court.  In addition to criminal penalties, a conviction or guilty plea can result in suspension of your driving privileges or a steep increase in your car insurance rates. The impact of a traffic offense can be even more severe for truckers and professional drivers, as a commercial driver's license (“CDL”) suspension may mean the loss of one's livelihood.
