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.

Colorado criminal procedure

  • Arrest or

    Arrest or

    The process begins with either an arrest or a summons. The accused is either arrested or served with paperwork summoning them to appear in court. During an arrest, Miranda rights may or may not be read to you. Officers are only required to recite your rights if they intend to question you about potentially incriminating things.

  • Bond Hearing

    Bond Hearing

    In most cases, you're entitled to have a reasonable bond set after you've been arrested. In situations involving domestic violence, the police will request input from the victim before setting a bond. Bonds are set to ensure that a person appears in court at their court dates. If they don’t show up, they forfeit the money that was paid for the bond.

  • Advisement of

    Advisement of

    Whether you are arrested or given a summons to appear, the court must make sure you understand what crimes you are being accused of committing. This is called advisement of charges. The District Attorney will detail the specific charges against you, and the Judge has to make sure you understand what possible penalties are associated with that charge in the state.

  • Preliminary Hearing
    (for Higher Felony

    Preliminary Hearing
    (for Higher Felony

    A preliminary hearing is a way for your defense attorney to challenge the District Attorney’s right to bring charges against you by making them prove that there is reason to believe you committed a crime. The Judge is not deciding your guilt or innocence, but rather whether or not there is probable cause to charge you with the crime in question.

  • Pretrial Conference /

    Pretrial Conference /

    This court date comes after your attorney has reviewed all of the reports and evidence in your case. Here’s where your attorney will engage in plea negotiations with the DA. If they can reach an agreement on the case, you may be able to take a plea bargain. If they cannot reach a resolution, your case will be set for an arraignment or trial date.

  • Arraignment


    An arraignment is the final date for you to decide how you choose to plea. Guilty or not guilty. If you plead guilty, then the case is set for a sentencing date. If you plead not guilty, you and your attorney will then set the case for trial.

  • Motions Hearing

    Motions Hearing

    A motion hearing is when an attorney makes a request that requires a decision from the judge. For example, motions to suppress evidence or statements. These motions can limit the information that goes before a jury if it benefits your case, and there are legal grounds for doing so.

  • Pretrial Readiness

    Pretrial Readiness

    A pretrial readiness conference is held at some point before trial. It usually is held about a week to a month before the date trial is set to begin. This court date ensures everyone is ready to go to trial on the set date. It is also a time for lawyers to bring up any issues they may have to be addressed before the day of trial.

  • Jury Trial

    Jury Trial

    After a jury is selected for trial, the District Attorney’s responsibility is to present the case to the jury. The DA must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty of the crime. Otherwise, the jury must find you innocent. Your attorney will be able to cross-examine all of the witnesses, present evidence, and ultimately help you navigate this process.

  • Sentencing


    At sentencing, the Judge must decide the appropriate legal penalty for the crime you plead guilty. The Judge’s decision is based on the listed penalties for the specific charge, recommendations from the presentence investigation, your criminal history, as well as statements made at the sentencing by the District Attorney, your attorney, you, and any named victims of the crime.

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.
