Robbery is a serious offense. In Arizona it’s treated as a violent crime and you will face prison time for your robbery charge if convicted. Robbery isn’t just theft though, it involves an aspect of violence or threat of violence. Since it’s classified as a violent crime, robbery is likely to result in felony charges. Judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement treat such suspects with disdain, but you have rights and should seek an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney right away.
The degree or severity of the felony charge depends largely on the circumstances of the crime. For instance, the charge will be more serious if the crime involves a gun or other dangerous weapon, if you have a criminal history, if you’re on probation or parole, or if the crime involves the elderly or disabled. Generally, robbery is a Class 4 felony charge, carrying 18 months to 3 years in prison.
