Charged with a Theft Crime?

Robbery Defense Attorney in Brooklyn

Charged with Robbery?

Robbery is the forcible taking of money or property from another. The penalties vary depending on whether a weapon is used, whether a group is involved and the amount taken. As conviction can mean years in prison, you are urged to contact a criminal defense lawyer in Brooklyn for effective defense.

Robbery Charges

  • First Degree Robbery: This is for classical armed robbery where a holdup person points a gun at a bank teller or store clerk and demands funds. The maximum penalty is 25 years in prison. For a first time offender there is a mandatory minimum 5 year term.
  • Second Degree Robbery: This is for a forcible robbery where a group of persons engage in taking property from another. The maximum sentence is 15 years.
  • Third Degree Robbery: This is the mildest form of robbery usually applied to a person acting alone without a deadly weapon but still using force to take something from another. It carries up to a 7 year maximum sentence.

Brooklyn Robbery Defense Lawyer

We defend clients against robbery charges in Brooklyn. We are the legal team at The Law Offices of David E. Levine. We recognize that it is very easy to be wrongly accused for participating in a robbery. Though a person can be just a bystander at a robbery, a witness may falsely accuse the bystander of being a lookout or other accessory.

Robbery charges can also be applied where the maximum sentence seems inappropriate. For instance juveniles bullying a smaller child to take a toy can be referred to the adult court system for a second degree robbery charge and theoretically be subject to a 15 year sentence.

Whatever the circumstances we vigilantly defend our client against charges. In cases of mistaken identity, we use the powers of cross-examination to expose inability to accurately observe. Where penalties are obviously inappropriate to the conduct involved, we appeal for reduction of charges. Whatever the situation, we work tirelessly to achieve the best possible result for our client.
