Charges of theft in Colorado range from simple misdemeanors to life changing felony events. A misdemeanor theft charge such as shoplifting can be filed in the Municipal Court and involve potential penalties to include jail, public service, restitution and probation.
A felony theft charge results when the dollar amount involves $1,000.00 or more. Felony penalties range from a potential deferred sentence (which means your case will be dismissed over time) to the unfortunate penalty of a prison term.
