5 of the worst criminals Colorado has ever seen

Colorado, one of the most interesting historical states in the country, has a great list of criminals who hail from and still occupy Colorado.

There are great stories and tall tales about these criminals, and sorting through what’s true can be quite difficult. But here are some of the worst criminals the state of Colorado has ever seen:

Ramzi Yousef


Ramzin was one of the men behind the 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers and the World Trade Center. He’s serving a life sentence in the maximum security prison in Colorado. We won’t miss seeing him around.

Terry Nichols


Terry was sent to the supermax prison in Colorado after being convicted for the bombing in Oklahoma City in the year of 1995. 5 years ago Nichols began a hunger strike, complaining about the quality of the food in prison. If he was arrested in Idaho instead a criminal lawyer from Boise could have helped him.

Robert Hanssen


Robert H. is also serving multiple life sentences after selling classified data to the Russians. Robert is a former FBI agent and was convicted with treason after betraying the United States. Robert’s story was told in the movie “Breach” which can be watched online.

Michael Rudki


He’s a former prison officer, who admitted having sex with an inmate. Not only that but we also pleaded guilty to conspiring to kill his own wife. After being incarcerated, Michael tried to get another person to kill that inmate, his wife and her boyfriend and a federal officer.

Vincent Basciano


Vincent is serving a life sentence in Colorado supermax prison for leading the Bonanno crime family. He was convicted not only with murder but with other countless charges. Basciano was imprisoned in 2006.
