How much evidence does the prosecution have? Can they prove you were the robber — or even that there was a robbery? Our law firm never takes the easy way out. We work hard for the best resolution we can get — acquittal, dismissal or reduced charges.
Robbery includes a threat of force. From stealing a bike to bank robbery, if a gun or some other threat of force was used, you can be charged with robbery. If the prosecution can prove a gun was used, a mandatory five years will be added to the sentence.
Burglary is breaking in with intent to commit a crime. Even if nothing was taken, the person who broke in can be charged with burglary. Do not try to explain to the police. Talk to your lawyer about exactly what happened. Knowing all the facts can help your case.
Theft can include a wide range of illegal actions. Theft can be charged for shoplifting, embezzlement, depositing a bogus check and getting cash back, pickpocketing, or stealing vouchers from slot machines. If you have been charged with theft, contact an attorney who knows how to protect your rights and help you through a difficult time.
A robbery, burglary or theft conviction can leave you with a criminal record. Do not talk to the police. Talk to a lawyer who will look out for your best interests. There may be mitigating circumstances or this charge could be the result of a mistake by law enforcement.
