How does an armed robbery charge work?
Since the presence of a deadly weapon is critical to an armed robbery charge,
our attorney can file a motion to suppress evidence of the weapon if law
enforcement did not follow proper protocol in arresting you.
There are three types of armed robbery cases our Lancaster criminal defense
lawyer can assist with:
Stranger hold up—where the victim is held at visible or implied gun or knife point
Home robbery—the accused forces their way into an occupied home to commit robbery
Bank or store robbery—the accused enters a building to demand money or other property
They key to an armed robbery charge is depriving a person of property from
them or in their immediate presence by means of force or fear.
The presence of a firearm in any robbery case will add to the prison sentence
handed down. A first degree robbery conviction carries 3 to nine years,
for example; if a weapon was used, an additional 10 years can be added
to the sentence. If the firearm is discharged, the added time can be up
to 20 years.
Defending the Rights of the Accused Since 1997
You still have rights when charged with armed robbery which our Lancaster
criminal defense attorney can work to uphold in court or in negotiating
with the prosecution. If it can be proved you did not in fact have a weapon
on you, by definition you cannot be charged with armed robbery.
You may have been licensed to carry a weapon and were under the impression
the property in question was in reality your property or that you did
not intend to permanently deprive the owner of it. Whatever the details
of your case, we can find a means of defending you and fighting for your future!
