Rock Robbery - Colorado Springs Police & El Paso Sheriff: C.R.S. 18-4-301

Denver Robbery Attorney

Colorado Springs Police in El Paso County, Colorado are on the hunt for a man accused of throwing a rock at a liquor store clerk during an attempted Robbery (C.R.S 18-4-301) and later robbing two people at knife point. Eye witnesses saw the man walk into the liquor store and demand money while threatening employees with the rock. He allegedly threw the rock at one employee (Assault in the Second Degree, C.R.S. 18-3-203) and tried to hit another, but ran away without any money when one of the employees defended himself with a stool. In Douglas, Arapahoe, and Denver County, robbery is a class 4 felony. However, if the robbery is committed with the use of a deadly weapon with the intent to use it if resisted, or results in injury, it is considered Aggravated Robbery (C.R.S. 18-4-302) in Colorado, and is a class 3 felony.

Aurora Robbery Lawyer - What is Robbery? 

In order to prove the elements of robbery, Aurora, Centennial, and Greeley prosecutors must prove that a person takes something of value from another person by the use of force, threats, or intimidation. In this case, the unidentified robber is facing charges of aggravated robbery for using a knife and hitting one of the alleged victims during the second robbery. If prosecutors can establish that he used the rock as deadly weapon, he would be facing another charge for attempted aggravated robbery. A "bludgeon" like a rock, may be considered a deadly weapon if it is intended to be used as such.

Violent Crimes in Douglas County

Many times, those accused of aggravated crimes did not mean for things to escalate to a violent level. For example, a person may merely intend to steal something, even something of little value, but does not intend that anyone else get involved or be injured in the process. During intense moments, or when confronted, people say and do things they do not mean. Additionally, eye witness accounts during these heated events tend to be incredibly unreliable and highly suggestible.

If law enforcement officers in Adams, Jefferson, or Larimer County have accused you of aggravated robbery, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who can develop holes in the prosecution's case. At the O'Malley Law Office, we will work diligently to re-question eye witnesses and hold the government to the highest standard of proof against you.
