Armed Robbery Charges

Ventura Robbery Lawyer

In California, robbery is defined by penal code section 211 as the taking of someone else's personal property either directly from his or her person or immediate presence against their will and by use of force or fear. All charges will be considered more harshly when the use of a weapon is present.

This is known as armed robbery. Armed robbery charges are treated very seriously and can carry severe penalties. The sentence for a first offense armed robbery depends on circumstances such as where the crime was committed and what kind of weapon was used, but in any event, a lengthy prison sentence may result.

Standard robbery charges can be tried as a first or second degree felony. Armed robbery is considered a violent felony and under the three strikes law, a second violent felony will carry double the penalty of a first violent felony. A third violent felony can result in a life sentence. Facing an armed robbery charge is stressful but it is important to remember that you do have rights.

I have the skill and experience you need to assist you in seeking to avoid the harshest penalties and long term consequences of an armed robbery conviction.
