Classification of Violations and Sentencing Ranges

Most Greeley Municipal violations are misdemeanor offenses or traffic offenses. Either of these offenses can be punished by up to one year in the Weld County Jail and up to $1,000 in fines. Cases related to misdemeanor or traffic offenses require appearances in the Greeley Municipal Court, and may result in a long-term criminal record.

A few of the violations are considered misdemeanor infractions, traffic infractions, or parking infractions, which are punishable by fines up to $500. Misdemeanor, traffic, or parking infractions can be handled through court appearances at the Greeley Municipal Court or the ticketed person can simply enter a plea and pay the associated fines listed on the ticket by the designated date instead of going to court.

Penalty for Unpaid Fines and Costs

If a person takes a plea deal or is sentenced to pay fines to the Court, and neglects to do so, the Greeley Municipal Court judge can sentence that person to 1 day in the Weld County Jail for every $25 that is owed. The incarceration period cannot exceed 90 days for one offense. However, if you have multiple offenses as separate cases with separate sentences, this limit would not necessary keep you from spending more than 90 days in jail.
