Colorado Theft Crime Attorney


A theft crime conviction carries serious penalties in Colorado. Depending upon the severity of the crime, you can be faced with either a misdemeanor or felony charge resulting in possible jail time, harsh fines and community service. In addition, a theft related conviction will appear in your criminal record and could negatively affect your life and future. If you are under investigation or are facing theft related charges in Colorado, don’t risk your future by not having an experienced Denver criminal attorney by your side.

If you’re charged with theft, you could face serious legal and personal consequences. At the Law Offices of Hebets & McCallin, we are committed to defending individuals accused or charged with theft related crimes.

Being charged with theft means you are accused of intentionally taking the property of someone else without their consent when they are not around, so that the person cannot use or benefit from the property again. This could mean you’re accused of taking someone’s purse or computer. Whereas criminal mischief only involves damage to the property of someone else, theft involves possession of the property in question.

Theft is often associated with robbery and burglary, but each crime differs in important ways. While theft is taking someone else’s property without their consent, robbery is when you take something directly from someone else by use of force, threats, or intimidation. If you see a computer left unattended, and you take the computer - that is theft. If you take the computer while someone is using it, and you threatened to punch them in the face if they did not give it to you - that is robbery. Robbery can be considered aggravated and carry more serious penalties if you used a weapon, assaulted the other person, or put the other person in fear of harm or death.

On the other hand, burglary is the unlawful entry into a building for purpose of committing a crime inside. It could be you’re accused of breaking into your neighbor’s home to steal something - in other words, commit theft. But the intent to commit a crime can include intent to commit assault, harassment, or criminal mischief, among others.

A number of other crimes fall under the umbrella of theft. These include fraud, breaking and entering, grand theft auto, identity theft, and shoplifting. In a case of theft, whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony depends on the value of the item allegedly stolen. Being convicted of robbery, burglary, or another theft-related crime puts a felony on your criminal record. A theft conviction can seriously damage your ability to gain or maintain employment. In all cases, you could potentially face heavy fines, prison time, or probation.
