If you are accused of a crime and accused of using a weapon during that crime, you will face significantly harsher penalties.
For example, if you are accused of robbery without a weapon, you will be charged with simple robbery. If you had a weapon in your possession during the event, you will be charged with aggravated robbery, even if you did not use the weapon. Aggravated robbery is subject to a mandatory prison sentence in Colorado.
Weapons recovered in drug cases are also often used to increase the penalties against the accused person.
