An assault conviction can result in up to 24 years in prison as well as steep fines, depending on the type of assault charges you receive. Once your sentence is complete, you are required by law to list the conviction on any job, loan, school or housing application and your record will be reported on background checks. An assault conviction on your record can impact your entire life, including how others view you as a person. You need a Boulder lawyer with experience in assault defense.
