Strong Defense Against Theft Charges In Colorado
There are numerous types of Theft crimes in Colorado, however for the large part, Colorado law breaks Theft crimes down into two main categories, misdemeanor Theft and felony Theft. While there are multiple ways and reasons why law enforcement may charge you with Theft in Colorado, make sure you make it a priority to speak to a qualified Denver Theft Attorney as a conviction of either misdemeanor or a felony on your permanent record will spell potential disaster for your career and future finances.
Most people don’t realize how easy it is to be charged and convicted under these “crimes of moral turpitude”. As Denver Theft lawyers, we see Theft charges in Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Boulder, Douglas, Gilpin and Jefferson counties, and throughout the rest of the metro area.
So What Exactly is the Definition of Theft (CRS 18-4-401)?
Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor Theft, or felony, the definition under the Colorado Theft statute remains the same.
In short, a person commits theft when he or she knowingly obtains or exercises control over anything of value of another without authorization, or by threat or deception, and intends to deprive the other person permanently of the use or benefit of thing of value. Or, knowingly conceals or abandons the thing of value in a manner that deprives the other person permanently of its use or benefit. In other words, you take something that isn’t yours and you intend to keep it or intend to hide it so the person you took it from cannot ever get it back and use it for themselves.
What is a Theft Lawyer going to do for me that I could not do for myself in Court?
Maybe I can explain by way of example: We are working on a case in court, and see a person charged with Theft walk in, try and speak with the district attorney, and get a “no jail” offer on their case. They think that they have hit a home run. They gladly accept the plea bargain offered by the prosecutor, and they go home happy to just avoid any incarceration.
Then we get a call a few months later. The conversation usually starts with “I went to court and I pled guilty on a Theft charge in Arapahoe, now when I try to get a job, they tell me I am being rejected because I have a conviction on my record. Can you help?”
