Robbery charges are serious criminal charges with serious potential penalties and consequences. Aggravated robbery charges can be even more serious. There are several different options for defending against robbery charges and the best option depends on the situation the accused individual is facing.
A strong criminal defense strategy may be able to help the accused individual attack the charges they are facing and potentially avoid the serious repercussions of robbery charges which can include incarceration, fines and a criminal record. As is true of any criminal charges, it may be possible to challenge the alleged evidence against the accused individual or the facts as alleged by authorities. It may also be possible to challenge witness statements. In addition, if authorities violated any of the accused individual’s rights during the arrest or otherwise, it may be possible to challenge the charges on that basis.
Additional robbery defense options can include intoxication defenses, including voluntary and involuntary, entrapment and duress defenses. These defenses are specific defenses with specific requirements so if an accused individual thinks one of these defenses may apply to their situation and circumstances, they should ensure they understand what those requirements are. Facing robbery charges are unquestionably serious and because they must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, it is imperative for accused individuals to be familiar with their criminal defense rights.
Preparing a strong criminal defense strategy is essential when facing any criminal charges, including robbery charges. Accused individuals must know how to enforce their criminal defense rights and ensure they are protected.
