4 Common Colorado Property Offenses
There are other common property offenses in Colorado other than theft. Here are five common property offense cases that our theft and property offense lawyers handle:
- Robbery: When one person takes another person’s money or property with force or the threat of force, robbery has occurred.
- Home invasion: This occurs when someone makes unlawful entry into a home that is occupied. The person making the unlawful entry is armed and the person at home must be lawfully present within the home.
- Trespassing: When someone enters another person’s property without permission or without lawful authority to do so, this is trespassing. In Colorado, it must be proven there is some amount of damage or interference with the property to press trespassing charges.
- Vandalism: This is willful damage or defacing of property. The property can be public or private.
Oftentimes Colorado combines theft and property crime charges with drug or weapons charges. If you have pre-existing criminal convictions, additional charges can complicate your life.
