Aggravated Robbery Charges in Arapahoe County | CRS 18-4-302

aggravated-robbery-charges-omalley-and-sawyer-llc.jpgAggravated robbery charges in Arapahoe County often involve situations where someone is armed with a weapon while committing a robbery. When someone wounds another with a deadly weapon during a robbery or uses threats, especially detrimental criminal charges can result. Earlier this week, police were looking for a suspect linked to two different robberies in Colorado involving a deadly weapon. The man allegedly showed a knife in both instances while demanding money from a clerk. Any allegations of aggravated robbery in Colorado require representation from an experienced criminal lawyer.

What is Aggravated Robbery in Colorado?

Aggravated robbery in Aurora, Centennial, and Englewood is addressed in C.R.S. 18-3-402. If someone commits robbery and any of the following are true, aggravated robbery charges can result if the suspect:

  • committed the offense with a weapon intending to kill, maim, or wound a person if resisted,
  • struck or wounded someone with a deadly weapon,
  • used force, threats, or intimidation that caused fear of injury or death,
  • represented that they were armed with a deadly weapon

The essential difference between robbery and aggravated robbery is the use or threat of a deadly weapon. Deadly weapons include many different items ranging from a firearm to a baseball bat. If the object is capable of causing serious injury or death it may be considered a deadly weapon.

Sentencing for Aggravated Robbery in Arapahoe County

The consequences of an aggravated robbery conviction in Colorado are severe. As a class 3 felony, conviction can result in:

  • 4 - 16 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections,
  • up to $750,000 in fines

This lengthy potential of incarceration is due to the offense being an extraordinary risk crime. In cases where the defendant knowingly strikes or wounds someone with a deadly weapon as part of the robbery, the potential prison sentence doubles.
