Expert Legal Defense for Robbery Charges
In the State of Texas, robbery involves committing theft while intentionally knowingly or recklessly causing or threatening bodily injury to another person or placing another in fear of imminent bodily injury or death.
Aggravated robbery, sometimes called armed robbery, involves committing robbery and causing serious bodily injury to another person, using or exhibiting a deadly weapon or causing bodily injury to another person or placing another person in fear of imminent bodily injury or death if the other person is 65 years or older or is a disabled person.
Robbery is a second-degree felony in Texas, subject to penalties of two to 20 years in state prison and a fine up to $10,000. Aggravated robbery is a first-degree felony, and may be penalized by five to 99 years in state prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
There are several main defenses that can be used to fight a robbery charge, including establishing insufficient intent or knowledge. Other defenses can include establishing that no injuries to the victim were caused in the incident, that the defendant did not threaten the victim or that the victim did not fear injury or death.
