No state, Colorado most definitely included, takes acts of violence against family members or significant others lightly. If you find yourself facing a domestic violence charge, you probably want to know how it could affect you now and in the future. The immediate consequence of a domestic violence accusation is jail time. If a law enforcement authority has any reason to suspect any truth to the accusation, you will go to jail just to remove you from the situation.
