Robbery Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale

Robbery is one of the more common crimes that the state of Florida prosecutes. Though there are similarities between this crime and those of theft and burglary, there are key differences as well. As with theft and burglary, robbery is serious and can lead to prison terms and significant fines.

Facing a robbery charge can be daunting. You may feel as though there is little hope. However, you can depend on an experienced lawyer to be your advocate throughout the process. Your attorney may be able to get a judge to dismiss your case, reduce the charges, or lessen the severity of the penalties.

Variations of Robbery

Taking something that does not belong to you can occur in various ways. Under Florida law, examples of robbery and its variations include the following situations and crimes:
  • Robbery by sudden snatching
  • Robbery with a deadly weapon
  • Robbery with a firearm
  • Home invasion robbery
  • Carjacking
Call The Law Offices of R. David Williams, P.A., today to schedule a free consultation. Our Fort Lauderdale robbery lawyer will explore the details of your particular case and examine different defense options.

An Understanding Of Robbery

Many people confuse robbery with other crimes. Florida law states that robbery is committed when “a person intentionally and unlawfully takes money or property from another person through the use of force, violence, assault, or threat.” The property must have some value, and the perpetrator must have permanently or temporarily deprived the victim of his or her right to the property. The defendant must have appropriated the property of the victim for his or her own use or for the use of any person not entitled to it.

The law requires that the alleged victim offer some resistance unless he or she could not due to fear. The victim does not have to resist if he or she is in a position of great physical harm.

The Penalties For Robbery

Robbery is a second-degree felony, and a conviction can bring severe penalties. The specific penalties depend on what the person stole and the type of force he or she used. The judge in the case can issue a combination of penalties. Most commonly, the judge will issue a up to a 15-year prison sentence and up to $10,000 in fines. The defendant can also face up to 15 years of probation.

To protect your rights and get the most favorable outcome possible, you need the right lawyer on your side. You should start by calling our Fort Lauderdale robbery lawyer to schedule a free consultation. During this meeting, you will learn about your options and how to best proceed in your case.

Defense Strategies In A Robbery Case

It can be challenging to establish a solid defense in a robbery case, but there are options. Your lawyer may establish an afterthought defense. Here, you would have taken the property as an afterthought to the use of force or violence. The claim of right defense is another common one. This states that you took the property because you believe you were entitled to its immediate possession or use. Or, the mere presence defense may apply. This states that simply being present at the scene or having knowledge of it is not enough to establish that you participated in the robbery.
