Types of Robbery Charges

In Florida, robbery occurs when someone steals money or other goods from another person and uses violence, coercion, assault, or fear of such actions to do so. Robbery charges are classified as felonies in Wellington and require an aggressive legal defense from an attorney with experience handling these legal matters. Some examples of commonly charged robbery offenses include armed robbery, carjacking, and home invasion robbery.

The severity of a robbery charge will depend on multiple factors. The location of the alleged robbery, whether or not the suspected robbery was executed with or without the use of a weapon, whether or not the person from whom the money or goods was taken was injured and to what extent, and whether or not the commission of the alleged robbery coincided with other criminal conduct could all serve to increase or decrease the severity of the penalties that the accused might face.

Legal Consequences of a Robbery Conviction

Robbery that is committed in the absence of a firearm or other weapon is typically classified as a second-degree felony. A notable exception is carjacking, which, even in the absence of a weapon during the commission of the crime, is still classified as a first-degree felony. Most robberies involving deadly weapons such as firearms or other weapons are classified as first-degree felonies.

In the state of Florida, a second-degree felony can be accompanied by a prison sentence of up to 15 years. As for a first-degree felony, robbery crimes classified as such can subject someone to a maximum period of imprisonment of 30 years to life, depending on the circumstances involved.

A type of robbery known as “robbery by sudden snatching” carries the least harsh penalties for such offenses and is a third-degree felony when no weapons are involved. Still, a person convicted of this crime could face a period of incarceration of up to five years, plus fines. A Wellington attorney can help someone accused or charged with robbery explore the most helpful and relevant defense strategies to push back against these charges.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
