At The Law Offices of James Angelino, I believe in my clients and always give them my very best. I will work tirelessly to help you avoid the harsh consequences of a robbery conviction in Texas.
If you’ve been arrested and charged with robbery, you need legal representation you can count on. I care about my clients and their concerns. I have the legal experience you need to get your case dismissed and the charges dropped.
Handling Serious Robbery Cases
I can defend you against charges such as:
- Robbery: Second-degree felony: Punishable from two years to 20 years in the Texas Department of Corrections and up to a $10,000 fine.
- Aggravated robbery: First-degree felony: Punishable from five years to 99 years and/or life in the Texas Department of Corrections and up to a $10.000 fine.
Robbery is defined as the stealing of property by either physical force or the threat of physical force. Very simply put, robbery is a theft with the use of force or threat of force. This means that if you threaten someone with force, while in the commission of a theft, you can still be charged. You also may be charged with robbery if you push a security officer while trying to flee after committing a shoplift. The major difference between robbery and burglary is the use of force.
Avoid Lifelong Consequences
Even after you are done with your case, a felony conviction can haunt you for the rest of your life. Criminal charges on your record, especially violent criminal charges, can stop you from finding a job, receiving financial aid or even renting an apartment. Your criminal history will indicate an increased liability for those people, which can get in the way of you leading a crime-free future. Now, this is where the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney comes in.
