Theft From an At-Risk Person in Denver, Colorado


Lawyer for Theft From an At Risk Person Charges in Denver

In Denver, Theft charges can be serious enough on their own to warrant the need for an experienced defense lawyer. However, what you may not realize is that if you stole from an at risk person, you will be facing additional penalties. Last month, a woman in Nulca, Colorado faced felony charges for doing just that. Posing as a caretaker for an elderly man, the woman used the man's debit card to steal $3,743. Not only does she face charges for Theft and crimes against an at risk person, but also unauthorized use of a financial transaction device.

Sentence for Theft Depends on Amount in Adams County & Arapahoe County

In the case of the Nulca woman, stealing $3,743 would put her in the range of a Class 6 felony The sentence for a Class 6 felony (theft ranging from $2,000 to $4,999.99) in Adams County is 12-18 months in prison and a fine between $1,000 to $100,000. If you steal less than $2,000 you will be charged with a misdemeanor, and if it is a first-time theft it is unlikely that you will have to go to jail, but you will still face fines, probation, and your new criminal record will affect your ability to find a job. A person commits a Class 3 felony if they steal between $100,000 and $999,999. In Arapahoe County this would mean a $3,000-$750,000 fine and 4-12 years in the Arapahoe County Detention Center. (Additional felony Theft amount charges)
