Arrested for Robbery?
Relentless Rockwell Criminal Defense Attorney
Any taking of another person’s property by force can be grounds for
a robbery charge. Robbery is an especially serious theft crime because
it is implied that the crime is committed in the presence of the owner
by means of force or violence. When confronted with robbery charges, you
need tough legal representation from a Rockwell criminal defense lawyer
to ensure your rights are respected and your future is protected.
When you choose to work with The Law Offices of J. Cameron Cowan, I offer
the benefit of my nearly 15 years of past experience as a chief felony
prosecutor and as a district attorney. Through handling more than 200
jury cases, I learned how prosecutors strategize and how to outmaneuver
them. Trust my firm to always look out for your best interests no matter
how complex your charges.
Get Vigorous Defense for Criminal Charges
A robbery charge needs to have several elements present which can be substantiated
by the prosecution or such a charge will not hold up.
The elements to a robbery charge are:
- Taking of property form the rightful owner
- Acting without the owner’s permission
- Intent to steal property
- Use of force or intimidation against the owner
The force or intimidation used needs to be shown to have been directly
tied to the taking of property, not before or after it has been taken.
Threats of future violence are not proper grounds for a robbery charge.
Contesting Robbery Accusations
Robbery is a felony crime, meaning if convicted you will likely be spending
over a year in prison. As a highly-skilled Rockwell theft crimes attorney,
I work to discredit the prosecution’s case—one way of doing
this is to dispute their contention that you intended to deprive the owner
of whatever property is in question. Intent is notoriously difficult to
prove, and to this end, I can posit that a misunderstanding is to blame
or you honestly believed the property was yours to use.
The time to begin your defense is now. Your future is too precious to trust
with subpar representation, so call on The Law Offices of J. Cameron Cowan
to get started.
