Fort Lauderdale Robbery Lawyer
Aggressive Defense Against Robbery Charges
If you are facing a robbery charge, you need a knowledgeable and experienced Fort Lauderdale criminal defense lawyer who will fight to keep you out of jail. Robbery involves face to face confrontation with the victim, and is defined in Florida law as the taking of money or other property from the person or custody of another. Robbery is different from simple theft because it involves the use of force, violence, assault or intimidation during the course of taking the money or property.
Depending on the nature of your arrest and your situation, you may face a first degree or second degree robbery charge. Robbery while carrying a fire-arm or other deadly weapon, a first degree felony offense, can result in a 30 year prison sentence even for a first-time offender. The use of a firearm during a robbery may add additional years to your sentence, and the actual discharge of a firearm can add up to 20 additional years.
