Facing Robbery Charges in Arizona?

By Knowles Law Firm, PLC  Nov. 17, 2010 12:45p

Arizona defines robberycriminal offenses as when a person who is taking the property of another person who is immediately present does so against their will, and threatens or uses force in order to coerce the property owner to surrender the property or to prevent resistance in the theft of the property. Any type of theft crime that involves the use of force, whether it is shoplifting, carjacking, breaking and entering, or any other type, will be charged as a robbery crime and the penalties are very severe for convictions. The penalties can include multiple years in prison and extremely harsh fines, among other punishments. If you are facing a robbery crime charge or accusation it is very important to contact a Tempe robbery lawyer immediately so that your rights can be protected, and a skilled attorney can be involved with your case from the very earliest moment possible.

The severity of robbery charges can vary depending upon the circumstances of the robbery. If no one is injured or killed, property is not destroyed and no weapon is used, the charges will be much less harsh when compared to other crimes. The use of a weapon during the course of a robbery is known as aggravated robbery. If these crimes result in the injury or death of another person, the defendant can face additional more serious charges such as murder, manslaughter and other offenses. In the event that a law enforcement officer is involved, the crime is immediately more serious and will result in harsher penalties and minimum prison sentencing for the felony conviction.
