How a Lawyer Can Assist Individuals Charged With Robbery
Robbery is a heavily prosecuted offense in Houston, and allegations can be a frightening prospect to face alone. Robbery convictions create a felon of the guilty party, causing serious personal and professional consequences in addition to any potential jail time and/or fines. Because of these ramifications, individuals charged with robbery should obtain legal representation as early in the legal process as possible.
When an Act is Considered Robbery
And experienced legal team can help you understand the robbery allegations brought against you and how those allegations may be challenged in your defense. To be considered robbery and not theft, both of the following circumstances must have occurred:
- Intention to maintain control of another person’s property without that person’s consent; and
- Injury of that person must have been threatened or have actually resulted from the incident
The central element of robbery, then, is the threat of or actual injury of the alleged victim. Our team understands how Houston attorneys prosecute robbery cases and, in turn, how to best defend against them. A thorough legal defense can be critical to either eliminating or mitigating the robbery charges leveled against you.
