Understanding Colorado Property Crimes

  • Arson
  • Burglary

  • Trespassing and Criminal Mischief

Types of Property Crimes in Colorado

Colorado’s property crime laws encompass a broad spectrum of offenses, each with its own degree of severity. Consequences can be amplified based on factors like the value of damaged or stolen property, use of weapons, and involvement of drugs or alcohol. Here’s a deeper look into some of these crimes:

  • Arson: Deliberately setting fires or using explosives, whether with the intent to harm or defraud, is a serious offense. It’s crucial to have arson lawyers who can dissect each case’s specifics, ensuring you’re aware of potential defenses and the available legal routes.
  • Burglary: In Colorado, burglary goes beyond just unlawful entry. It considers the intent and surrounding circumstances. Our burglary attorneys guide clients on potential outcomes and craft the best defense strategies for their situations.
  • Criminal Mischief: Damaging property, whether owned individually or jointly, can lead to criminal mischief charges. These acts, which may seem straightforward, can sometimes intertwine with domestic violence cases. Our criminal mischief lawyers ensure clients understand every aspect of their charges and their implications.

Additionally, other property crimes in Colorado include robbery, trespassing, defacing property, vandalism, theft, grand theft auto, shoplifting, and receiving stolen property. The range of these crimes means penalties can differ widely, from fines to prison time. A conviction not only stays on your criminal record, impacting future opportunities but can also lead to civil suits from damaged property owners.

Our team of legal experts is experienced in property crime defense, and ensures you’re not navigating this journey alone.
