Your situation might seem bleak, if you are facing Arizona robbery charges. You may have resigned yourself to the thought of serving years in prison. However, there may be a defense that applies to your case.
Robbery is defined under Arizona law (A.R.S. § 13-1902) as “taking any property of another from his person or immediate presence and against his will, such person threatens or uses force against any person with intent either to coerce surrender of property or to prevent resistance to such person taking or retaining property.” It is a class 4 felony.
Repercussions of Arizona Robbery Charges
If you are convicted of robbery in Arizona, you could be facing a lengthy jail sentence, but your problems won’t stop there. A felony on your criminal record could prevent you from obtaining the job you want and could therefore impact your future for years to come. You do not want a criminal record that will continue to haunt you, even after you have served your time.
It is important that you take action when you are accused of robbery. That means you need to contact an experienced Phoenix criminal lawyer, who will defend you and work to protect your interests. Again, there are often defenses for robbery charges. A lawyer may be able to help you avoid jail time.
