Default Custody level classification

Hi , my son hasnt been sentenced yet but I'm trying to help him get some questions answered. I found the classification points guideline and when I add his up it is 8 points which is minimum restricted. But it was a violent crime , very very bad one. I read that medium is the lowest he could get because of the violent crime. Does anyone know anything about this ? Thank you

I dont really know anything about the classification processes. But my husband got convicted of a violent crime and it was his first offense. He has a bs and never convicted of a any other crime and still is considered a medium offender in colorado. However my husband also has some mental health issues so that could have played a factor in him still being considered a medium classification. Again I dont really know the prosses. I would guess it would.

I sent you a private message but I want to post it on here in case it will help someone in the future. If you go to colorado.gov dept of corrections polices site then click on a link that says administration. Then scroll down to number 600, it will say offender classification. That is their paperwork and guidelines they use to determine points and custody level. I hope this helps others too. God bless you guys

Here's the link to the main Colorado Dept. of Corrections web page.
https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdoc/policies-1

There are 4 subheadings in the 600 Offender classification section:

600 - Offender Classification

600-01 Offender Classification
600-03 Clinical Transfer of an Offender to a Mental Health Institution
600-05 Restriction of Offenders' Privileges in Correctional Facilities
600-09 Special Management

Being convicted of a "Crime of Violence" can double the length of the sentence and does restrict what facility they can be placed in. It also reduces the amount of earned or good time that they can receive. Also, their PED is farther out.
