CRIMINAL SOLICITATION

Under Colorado law, a person can be held criminally liable for an act they merely encouraged another to commit.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with criminal solicitation if the individual commands, induces, or otherwise attempts to persuade another to commit a felony, so long as the individual’s intent that the offense be committed can be corroborated.

Criminal solicitation to commit a class 1 felony constitutes a class 2 felony; criminal solicitation to commit a class 2 felony constitutes a class 3 felony; criminal solicitation to commit a class 3 felony constitutes a class 4 felony; criminal solicitation to commit a class 4 felony constitutes a class 5 felony; criminal solicitation to commit a class 5 or 6 felony constitutes a class 6 felony.
