Colorado Springs Theft Crime Attorney

An Overview of Theft / Larceny Offenses in CO

When someone takes someone else's personal property or money without their consent with the intention of permanently depriving them, they can be charged with theft. This can also be called larceny. The difference between petty theft and grand theft is determined by the value of the item or money taken. In addition, petty theft is classified as a misdemeanor and grand theft is classified as a felony.

According to Colorado Statute §18-4-401, a theft crime will be a Class 2 misdemeanor if the value of the item involved is less than $500, and a Class 1 misdemeanor if $500 to $1,000 is stolen. Similarly, if the item is $1,000 or more, but less than $20,000, the theft will be categorized as a Class 4 felony under Colorado law. Theft will be categorized as a Class 3 felony if the property taken is worth $20,000 or more. Regardless of whether you have been charged with petty theft or grand theft, a Colorado Springs criminal attorney can help you take action to build and prepare a strong defense case.

Types of Theft Crimes

The definition of theft above covers an incredibly broad area. Anything of perceived value that is taken from another can be classified as theft. Too often, someone that has been accused of a theft crime is truly a good person that has fallen on a bad situation, or is wrongly accused based on false identification, allegations, or missing evidence. In both cases, you do not deserve a criminal record and penalties for this act.

Some common examples of theft crimes you may be charged with include:

Identity theft can include the misuse of another's identifying information such as credit history, social security numbers, PIN numbers, driver's license and such. It can be personal information or financial information and is additionally considered a computer crime as well. No matter what you have been accused of, Attorney Samuelson can help you stay away from negative repercussions in connection with these allegations.
