Theft Crime

Colorado Theft Crime Lawyer

Theft is defined as the illegal taking of another person’s property without that person’s freely-given consent. The crime of theft is proven when the prosecution has the ability to demonstrate that the property of another person was taken, without authorization or by threat or deception.

If you have been arrested for a theft crime, you need legal representation immediately. Fuicelli & Lee, PC are experts in criminal defense cases such as theft. In addition to prosecuting hundreds of theft cases, our attorneys have defended numerous theft cases, from shoplifting to prolonged white collar theft cases including some of the largest thefts in Colorado.

While theft can be a very serious crime, it is a property crime and is treated less harshly than violent crimes. Despite that fact, a conviction for theft, even something minor like shoplifting, can affect a person's ability to get a job or housing. Many employers will see the arrest charges on record for theft and decide not to hire that person.

Any theft charge will bring restitution with it. Restitution is the money paid to the victim for their losses. Many times prosecutors will over estimate restitution and include costs that are not covered by the restitution statute. Our attorneys will closely examine the restitution documents, along with the other evidence and determine the amount of the loss.
