Being charged with the crime of armed robbery can quickly turn into a nightmare. Without proper representation that nightmare may just become a reality with the severe consequences that will have to be endured.
Robbery cases can result in very serious penalties. In Fresno County, robbery – and particularly armed robbery – can result in a strike and prison time if you are convicted. Long term loss of freedom, permanent criminal record, and probation are just a few of the many penalties associated with armed robbery charges. Because of the often violent nature of such crimes, prosecutors are notoriously aggressive in their attempts to secure convictions in armed robbery cases. If you are charged with robbery or armed robbery, you will want to select a criminal defense attorney experienced in these types of cases.
Criminal Defense Attorney Scott Levy often seeks to suppress evidence that any weapon was involved in the alleged crime. Certain procedures must be followed precisely by police officials when a weapon search is conducted. If the procedures were not strictly adhered to, a motion to suppress evidence of a weapon may be successful. This can force the charges to be reduced from armed to unarmed robbery or larceny. Or, depending on the circumstances, the charges may be dismissed completely.
In most cases of armed robbery, the key evidence in these types of cases often requires the alleged victim or witness to pick out the accused person from a photo array or a physical lineup. If the identification of the accused was authentic and not tainted in any way, then the prosecutor can file charges against the accused and proceed with prosecution. However, if the witness was not sure, or pressured in any way by unscrupulous law enforcement officers, this may be grounds for a full dismissal.
Other factors that determine whether or not the prosecution has a case involve the preserved rights of the defendant, and that this defendant received due process. If any portion of the identification process can be suppressed, or the rights of the accused were violated in any way, the evidence may be thrown out and the prosecutor will have no case to proceed with.
If you have been charged with robbery, there are a number of defenses we may raise on your behalf, including:
