Grand Junction Theft And Fraud Defense Attorney
In Colorado, theft crimes are considered property crimes. If you or a loved one is facing property/theft crime charges, you must consider the effect it may have on your future. Employers are often reluctant to hire people who have a theft conviction on their records. Lenders, landlords, universities and licensing boards may also be troubled by a misdemeanor or felony conviction that appears on a standard background check.
We understand that relatively minor crimes can still have an enormous impact on your life. The Law Office of Vincent J. Felletter, Jr., works hard to reduce charges and minimize penalties. When possible, we work to get theft charges dismissed. For a free consultation with a Grand Junction theft and fraud defense attorney, please call 970-628-3917 or contact us online.
We Take All Theft Charges Seriously
You can be charged with misdemeanor or felony theft, depending on the type and value of the stolen property. If the crime involved the threat or use of force or a weapon, it will likely be charged as a felony. Even nonviolent theft offenses can be charged as felonies, however, if they occur on federal property or involve certain items. Felony penalties may include multiyear prison sentences, fines and restitution to the victims.
