Encino Robbery Lawyer
Defending Those Accused of Robbery
In common law, the act of robbery is defined as taking the property of another, with the intent to permanently deprive the person of that property, be means of force or fear. The major difference between robbery and petty theft is that robbery entails the use of fear and/or violence. Some penalties for being convicted of robbery can be severe; penalties can include imprisonment up to nine years for first degree robbery. There are also enhancements that can be added on to a robbery charge such as being armed with, or the use of a firearm. Being armed with a firearm without using it can add an additional one year in prison to a conviction sentence.
