A charge of theft or theft by receiving can destroy your life. You will need a criminal defense law firm in Denver to represent you, immediately. Your rights and your freedom need to be protected. Theft
is the taking of a thing of value from another person intending
to permanently deprive the other person of the thing of value. The
District Attorney must show that you intended that the owner would
never get the items or money back. If you borrowed the items or money,
this isn't considered to be a criminal act in Colorado - even if the
owner didn't know that you borrowed it.
Theft can be a felony or misdemeanor in Colorado, depending on the value of items or money stolen. Theft
by receiving is accepting something when you are aware it has been stolen. A
defense to your theft by receiving case may be that you had no
knowledge that the items had been stolen.
