Robbery Charges Defense Attorney in Phoenix, Arizona

In the state of Arizona, the crime of robbery involves taking someone’s property against their will, while using force to do so. Robbery is always a felony in Arizona, and as such, is a serious charge. If you’ve been charged with robbery, you need to consult with a robbery charges defense attorney.

The Shah Law Firm PLLC of Phoenix, Arizona has over twelve years of experience defending criminal law cases, including theft and robbery, and will conduct a thorough investigation of your case to create the most effective defense.


Types of Robbery Charges

Robbery is different than theft, which is just the taking of something that doesn’t belong to you. A robbery charge can range from being Class 2 to a Class 4 felony. Simple robbery is a Class 4 felony, meaning that force was used to take someone else’s property. Aggravated robbery is a Class 3 felony and is simple robbery but with accomplices. Armed robbery is a Class 2 felony and involves robbery with the use of a deadly weapon. The lower the number of the class, the more serious the crime, and the higher the penalties. The Shah Law Firm PLLC of Phoenix, Arizona is familiar with the various defenses that can be used in robbery charges cases and are dedicated to protecting your rights.

Robbery Charges Defense

There are a number of reasons why a defendant who has been charged with robbery may be found innocent. For instance, if the defendant was forced to commit the robbery or was under some kind of duress, this may be considered a mitigating circumstance. Intoxication can sometimes be used as a defense if it clouds the issue of intent. In any case, the prosecution has the burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the robbery. At the Shah Law Firm PLLC of Phoenix, Arizona, we will use our expertise to discover the circumstances that will prove your innocence or reduce your sentence.

Penalties for Robbery

The penalties for robbery depend on the seriousness of the charge. Simple robbery can carry a penalty of up to 3.75 years in prison for the first offense and more for subsequent offenses, as well as up to $150,000 in fines and restitution. Aggravated robbery carries the same fines with up to 8.75 years in prison. Armed robbery, the most serious type, can carry up to 21 years in prison, in addition to fines and restitution. Fines for dangerous or repeat offenses can go up to a million dollars. Given such penalties, it is critical to hire a knowledgeable robbery charges defense attorney from the Shah Law Firm PLLC of Phoenix, Arizona to defend you.
