Robbery Lawyer in Adams County | Force, Threat, or Intimidation

robbery-lawyer-omalley-and-sawyer-llc.jpgWhen a person in Adams County, Colorado takes something of value from another using force, threats, or intimidation, a robbery charge can result. A misdemeanor theft can quickly turn into a felony robbery when these factors are present. Force, threat, and intimidation are broad terms with massive impact. An act of taking another's belongings from them in the midst of a struggle is more common than many think. If a robbery allegation is looming for you or someone you know, it's best to consult an experienced robbery lawyer right away.

Adams County Robbery Law

Adams County's robbery laws prohibit taking someone's belongings via force or violence. CRS 18-4-301 defines the specific elements of robbery in Colorado. You commit robbery in Thornton, Northglenn, or Brighton if you:

  • knowingly take anything of value,
  • from the person or presence of another,
  • using force, threats, or intimidation

Taking someone's bag off their shoulder while walking in public is a clear example of robbery. Telling someone you'll retaliate if they don't give you their wallet is another robbery situation. Additionally, if the victim of a robbery in Colorado is over the age of 70, the charges amplify even more.

Will I Go to Prison for Robbery in Colorado?

Each robbery case in Colorado is different. Therefore, the punishments are as well. Robbery that doesn't involve a deadly weapon is a class 4 felony. Conviction can result in:

  • up to 6 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections,
  • fines of $2,000 - $500,000

However, when the victim is an at-risk elder (70+) or someone with a disability, the prison sentence can as much as double. Additionally, years of mandatory parole apply to both charges.

Colorado Robbery Lawyer

Securing an experienced robbery lawyer early on is essential for those facing these felony accusations. While robbery cases seem mostly straightforward, they're often more complicated than many presume them to be. It's the prosecutor's burden to prove each and every element of robbery for a conviction. Perhaps you didn't use force or threats, you didn't intend to take anything of value, or there was police misconduct. That said, contact our office for a free consultation with a strategic lawyer. We will carefully examine your unique case and recommend next steps in your defense. Our affordable fees and flexible payment plans make obtaining strategic representation a reality in uncertain times.

If you or someone you know is facing a robbery charge in Colorado, be smart. Contact the determined criminal defense attorneys at O'Malley and Sawyer, LLC at 303-731-0719. Together, we can protect your future.
