Robbery

Facing Robbery Charges?

Legal Guidance from a Temecula Criminal Defense Lawyer

California law defines robbery as forcefully taking someone else's property, either in the person's possession or from their body. A conviction could mean having a felony record and imprisonment for up to five years. Additionally, if other offenses were found to take place simultaneously with robbery, such as assault or use of a deadly weapon, further penalties can be added to the sentence.

If you are facing robbery charges, the first thing you should do is get a top Temecula criminal defense attorney on your case. Since 1999, the Law Office of Nicolai Cocis has been actively fighting against criminal charges and has successfully gained many acquittals and case dismissals through the years.

Building an Effective Defense

We have thoroughly studied the criminal legal system and understand the tactics that prosecutors use. They must prove that every element in evidence meets the definition of the crime in order to convict an individual. In a robbery case, it means that the prosecutor has to prove that property was, in fact, taken and that force was used against the alleged victim.

  • These are additional elements that prosecution must prove:
  • The items did not belong to you
  • The person gave no consent to take the property
  • There was intent to steal the items
  • Property was taken from the person's body or within their presence

Fortunately, there are several defense strategies to robbery charges that our team can use to help clear your name. If there are any weaknesses in the claims made against you, we can use that to overturn the prosecution's arguments. One example would be to show that there was no use of fear or force to take the items. Another strategy is to prove you had reasonable cause to possess the items. Whatever the circumstances of your case may be, you must act quickly to get our legal team behind you!
