We know just how serious a robbery allegation can be for you, your family, and everyone in your life. A long prison sentence, tens - if not hundreds - of thousands of dollars in fines, fees, and lost wages, a destroyed career, and a devastated family can go hand-in-hand with a robbery conviction. The embarrassment and emotional trauma can be overwhelming, but don’t give up. The first thing you must do is find the right lawyer to fight for you. You need a aggressive, dedicated, and experienced robbery lawyer who will not only fight for your rights, but who will take the time to listen to you and understand your unique situation.
Robbery occurs when, while in the course of committing theft, and with the intent to obtain or maintain control over property, the actor commits assault. For example, punching someone and taking their wallet is robbery. More commonly, however, robbery cases are actual shoplifting cases gone bad. Many times a person simply attempts to steal something small, like a candy bar, and gets into a struggle with a store employee and gets charged with robbery. See: Texas Penal Code 29.03. Robbery is a second degree felony (2-20 years in prison & up to a $10,000 fine).
