Fighting Robbery Charges
What Makes Us Different
Robbery is generally defined as taking property from another person by force, threat or coercion. In Georgia, robbery is a very serious criminal charge that carries a sentence of between one and 20 years. If the victim of the robbery was over 65 years of age, the penalties are even more severe.
If a weapon was used or displayed in the course of the robbery, the state can charge armed robbery, which carries even more severe penalties. A person convicted of armed robbery faces a mandatory prison sentence of 10 years and could face life in prison, depending on the specific factors of the case.
For instance, if the alleged robbery victim suffered an injury, the penalties can be heightened significantly. Prosecutors push for the harshest possible penalties. If you have been charged with robbery, it is important to have a skilled defense lawyer in your corner.
