What Is Theft?

In Colorado, the general definition of theft is when a person “knowingly obtains, retains, or exercises control over anything of value of another without authorization or by threat or deception….” C.R.S. 18-4-401 (2013). Additionally, the theft statute was recently broadened to include what used to be separate offenses, including theft by receiving stolen property.

Theft charges can range in severity from a municipal offense to a petty offense, all the way up to a high-level felony depending on the value of the item or money claimed to be taken. Because of this broad range of possible levels of charges, the penalties can range from a small fine and less than 6 months in jail up to decades in prison. A range of this magnitude makes it clear that you need to consult an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.

How Does a Theft Conviction Affect My Everyday Life?

No matter the level of the theft charge you are facing, few charges can lead to more unexpected repercussions than a theft charge. Most jobs require trustworthy employees that employers can trust are not going to steal from them. However, if you have a theft charge of any level on your record, current and potential future employers will always wonder if they can trust you. In fact, there are several industries, including banking and financial services, in which any level of a theft conviction will likely forever keep you from working in that industry. Additionally, if you are facing a felony charge, a felony conviction can have life-long consequences, affecting everything from your ability to vote in many states to your ability to possess a firearm.

What Can I Do?

Whether you are charged with municipal theft, misdemeanor theft, or felony theft, you need to take the charge seriously and talk to an experienced Colorado Springs theft defense attorney as soon as possible. If convicted of these charges, you can face serious penalties and life consequences.
