What to Do If You’ve Been Arrested for Theft in Colorado Springs

According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), one of the most important things you can do if you have been arrested for theft is to remember that you have rights and to protect those rights through your actions. 

This includes:

  • The right to remain silent until you have an attorney present for the questioning. You must state your name to an officer if asked.
  • However, following this, you can clearly state in response to the officer’s questions, “I wish to invoke my right to remain silent, and I would like an attorney.
  • If you have invoked your right to remain silent and have requested an attorney, you do not have to say anything further. Do not make any additional statements, offer excuses or explanations, or sign anything until your attorney is with you.
  • Remember that you do not have to consent to a search of your property under the Fourth Amendment. During your arrest, you may be subjected to a pat-down of your clothing to ensure that you do not have a weapon. Be aware that stating that you do not consent to a search of your property does not guarantee that this search will not occur, but making your objections known before the search takes place can preserve your rights in later proceedings.
  • Hire an experienced Colorado Springs criminal defense attorney to provide further guidance and assistance as you navigate the criminal justice process.

FAQ: Colorado Springs Theft Attorney

What is petty theft?

Under Colorado law, petty theft is when you intentionally steal property that’s worth less than $300. An example of petty theft is stealing an item from a store or failing to return a borrowed item within 72 hours of the promised return time. Petty theft is a petty offense, which is punishable by 10 days in jail and/or $300 in fines.

What is the difference between armed robbery and aggravated robbery?

In Colorado, armed robbery is a type of aggravated robbery. Robbery becomes aggravated when you use a weapon to commit an act of theft. The penalty for aggravated robbery in Colorado is 4-16 years in prison (with five years of mandatory parole) and a maximum fine of up to $750,000.

What if I’m innocent and I was wrongfully accused?

If you’re innocent but you’re charged with theft, it’s essential that you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney. It’s your word against the prosecutor’s word, so there’s no guarantee that the judge or the jury will believe you. If anything, it’s the prosecutor’s goal to convict you, so you need a criminal defense lawyer on your side to prove your innocence.
