The end result of a robbery charge can quickly elevate to high-class felonies if certain factors are present. Speak with an attorney to understand how your particular robbery case is being charged and why. Colorado has two main robbery charges:
Simple robbery is a form of theft defined by taking anything of value from another person by the use force, threats or intimidation. Robbery also requires that the victim be present while the act is occurring. Robbery is punishable up 6 years in prison, and under some circumstances as many as 12 year and fines of up to $500,000.
Aggravated robbery may be charged if you possessed a deadly weapon and either used it or threatened to use it. If your accomplice committed these acts, you may still be charged with aggravated robbery. Aggravated robbery carries a mandatory 10-32 years in prison and up to $750,000 in fines.
Committing robbery to take a controlled substance is substantially worse. No matter what type of charge you're dealing with, count on a robbery attorney at The Griffin Law Firm to give you best chance at a favorable outcome.
