Experienced Colorado Shoplifting and Theft Defense

Mix-ups happen all the time. You may have picked up an item just to look at it and forgotten to pay for it on the way out. Depending on the value of the merchandise, you may be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. You may want to speak with a shoplifting lawyer. Schedule a consultation by calling our office at 719-578-1183 or 303-795-0662.

Having a criminal record is a serious matter. If you are convicted you may find it difficult to find a job. A felony conviction has even stronger repercussions, which could include losing the right to vote, bear arms or get a student loan.

In Colorado, shoplifting charges may also incur a civil penalty from the store. Here’s how it works: If you are charged with shoplifting, you may be responsible for paying the merchant three times the value of the merchandise stolen or $250, whichever is greater.

With your very future at stake, we advise you to retain experienced criminal defense counsel as soon as possible. We examine every facet of the charge and arrest. Did the police have probable cause? Did they follow appropriate procedure? Our goal is to get the very best outcome for our clients by negotiating the reduction or dismissal of the charge or if necessary, take the case to trial.
