Phoenix Robbery Defense Lawyers

Were you arrested for an alleged robbery offense? Contact us at (602) 428-7104

Robbery is a very serious offense that could take years of freedom from you if you are not properly represented. This offense involves taking property from another person and in doing so, using force or the threat of force in order to take the property. Robbery must be committed in the presence of the victim and must be done against their will. This is different than burglary or shoplifting that does not require the victim to be present and also does not require force or a threat of force to commit the crime.

Types of Robbery Offenses

There are generally three classifications for robbery (ARS 13-1902):

  • Robbery is the taking of property from another by using force or threats to coerce them to give up their property. This offense is a class four felony and is punishable by up to 3.75 years in prison for a first offense.
  • Aggravated Robbery is a robbery that involves multiple suspects committing the robbery. This offense is a class 3 felony and is punishable by up to 8.75 years in prison for a first offense.
  • Armed Robbery is the most serious of the three types of robbery. This offense involves committing a robbery while using a deadly weapon or simulated deadly weapon or even threatening to use a deadly weapon or simulated deadly weapon. Armed Robbery is a class 2 felony and it is likely that the prosecution will make an allegation of "dangerous" for this offense which will require a mandatory prison sentence of 7 to 21 years.

How to Defend Against a Robbery Allegation

While these types of cases are serious, there are ways of fighting against them. You need an experienced attorney to evaluate your case to determine if there are Constitutional violations or other errors made by the police. Some challenges to an armed robbery charge include:

  • Miranda violation
  • Coerced confession
  • Flawed identification process
  • Poor police investigation

Often a charge of armed robbery will be accompanied by other related charges such as aggravated assault. If you or a loved one is charged with any robbery charge you may be subject to serious consequences and you will need the representation of an experienced attorney to ensure that your best interests and constitutional rights are protected and asserted. The attorneys at MayesTelles PLLC are trial proven in defense against all criminal charges and work diligently to protect your rights.
