Were You Charged with Robbery in Irvine?
California defines robbery as the following: Unlawful taking of another's personal property whether it is in their personal possession or not through means of violence or threat. For example, if you hurt or threaten to injure someone in order to gain possession of something that belongs to them, then you can be charged with robbery. Our Orange County criminal defense lawyer can provide you with professional legal representation if you have been arrested and charged with robbery.
Understanding Your Robbery Charges
Robbery is classified into two different categories, first and second degree. These classifications are based on the events surrounding an alleged robbery. First degree robbery, as the weightier offense, can only be charged if the crime occurs under a specific set of circumstances.
First degree robberies must fulfill one of the following criteria:
- Robbing a person who is operating any sort of vehicle or transportation device
- Robbing any person who is in or on vehicle
- Robbing someone inside a house or inhabited premises
- Robbing someone who has just used an ATM
Second degree robberies consist of everything that does not fulfill any of the criteria listed above. Consequences can range from extended prison sentences and expensive fines to minimal jail time and fines. Do not risk a conviction for these serious charges; work with a lawyer who has experience with theft charges and will provide the dedicated defense you need to see these allegations eliminated or dismissed.
