The Colorado Habitual Offender statute is the single most powerful weapon at the prosecution’s disposal when it comes to mandating prison sentences for the criminal defendant. When a defendant has been adjudicated a habitual criminal, the court presiding over that defendant’s case has no choice but to sentence that person to prison for either three or four times the maximum presumptive sentence for the charged offense. In many cases, if a person is convicted of habitual counts, that person will serve what amounts to a life sentence in prison. Simply put, the stakes are extremely in habitual cases. Not all criminal defense attorneys know how to try a habitual case.
