Criminal charge filed against suspect in car theft case

When a person in Colorado is accused of theft, whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony, it could have an impact on his or her future because it could be regarded as a reflection on one's character. For that reason, anybody facing a criminal charge would be best served by retaining experienced legal counsel. The way such charges are handled may limit the consequences in the future when it comes to employers, lenders and landlords who might have trouble trusting an individual who was convicted of theft.

These might be steps to be considered by two people who were arrested on a recent Sunday night. Reportedly, Colorado Springs police noticed a stolen car in a parking lot, and they followed the vehicle to a townhouse. However, the three occupants reportedly fled on foot when they saw the police nearby.

Officers and a K-9 unit searched the area and soon apprehended the suspects. They arrested a 22-year-old man believed to be the driver of the stolen car, and a 21-year-old who was apparently one of the passengers. Police released a third passenger. The driver is facing a charge of vehicle theft, and the accused passenger was charged with criminal possession of a financial device.

Anybody would likely take a criminal charge seriously, even if they believe it is unfounded or overblown. Securing the services of an experienced Colorado criminal defense attorney might be the most logical step to take. A lawyer can scrutinize the charges and the evidence and focus on helping the client avoid conviction or in minimizing any punishment for a theft conviction.
