A Robbery Attorney to Fight Your Case
If you’ve been charged with robbery, it’s important to know that being convicted of this crime can result in prison time and fines, with the consequences increasing for an armed robbery charge. Having a robbery attorney by your side to fight your case can help you have your best chance at a successful outcome. At Owens Criminal Defense, we work with clients who either have been charged with robbery or are under suspicion of robbery.
With some variation between states, robbery is defined as a theft in which a person intentionally or knowingly threatens or causes harm to another person. These actions of threat or harm can occur at any point in the theft or attempted theft. Robbery is considered a felony and is punishable by prison time and fines.
The Difference Between Robbery & Armed Robbery
Armed robbery, or aggravated robbery, is considered to be a more serious offense than robbery. If you’ve harmed another person, used or showed a weapon or threatened another person, your case may be considered armed robbery. Aggravated robbery, unlike robbery, is a first-degree felony and carries a much lengthier prison sentence if convicted.
If you’ve been accused or are under suspicion of either robbery or armed robbery, the best thing you can do is to speak to a robbery attorney as soon as possible before speaking with the authorities. When you contact Owens Criminal Defense, you’ll get clarification on your case and how to best move forward.
