People v. Walker

Colorado Court of Appeals, Division II
44 Colo. App. 249 (1980)


Facts

A policeman was lying face down in the street, posing as a drunk. The policeman was carrying a wallet with several hundred dollars of marked bills. Raymond Walker (defendant) approached the policeman and asked what was wrong. When the policeman did not respond, Walker took his wallet. Walker was apprehended nearby. Walker admitted that he took that wallet. However, Walker claimed that he did not have the specific intent necessary to be convicted of theft because he took the money from what he thought was a dead body. The trial court convicted Walker of theft. Walker appealed.
