What Will A Robbery Conviction Mean For Me?
Robbery is taking property which does not belong to you in the presence of the owner, against their will, using force or intimidation. There are first and second degree charges for robbery, first degree can be up to 6 years of prison, where second degree is up to 5 years in a state prison.
Robbery charges may be enhanced if any of the following occurred during the alleged incident:
- Bodily injury to the victim may add 3-6 years to prison time
- Brandishing or intimidation using a firearm may add up to 10 years
- Discharging a firearm intentionally during robbery will add up to another 20 years
- Discharging a firearm which causes serious bodily harm may add up to 25 years
It is the job of the prosecution to prove that you took the property while the owner was present and used intimidation or threats to do so. The job of the defense is to call into doubt even one of the points, which would make the entire case disintegrate leaving you to walk free.
Our criminal defense team is ready and waiting to defend you against allegations of robbery, to prevent felony conviction and reduce penalties as much as possible. You can trust Koch, Degn & Gomez to challenge the prosecution for a dismissal, a win, or reduction in sentencing and penalties.
