If you're up against a robbery charge, you are being accused of more than theft. Theft is defined as the taking of someone else's property. A charge of robbery means that you are being accused of threatening physical violence or actually using violence to directly steal from someone. While any accusation is a serious matter, your whole future could hang in the balance if you are faced with a robbery charge. You face the possibility of a violent offense being branded on your permanent record.

All it takes is a threat, or a perceived threat, and a theft could be charged as robbery. Someone who is simply sticking their fingers in a pocket and is thought to be holding a gun could be accused of threatening violence. Even if no one was hurt, you could be looking at penalties for a violent crime. The penalties for robbery depend on the specifics of your case, but on top of any fines and restitution you might have to pay, you could be sentenced to up to 9 years in prison.
Even a charge of simple robbery is one that requires the elite defenses that only an experienced litigator can provide. And even if you are looking at multiple, complex charges, our Oakland robbery defense attorney has the proven skill to pursue optimal results.
