What constitutes armed robbery?
An arrest for armed robbery does not mean you are automatically convicted.
My firm knows the prosecution needs to prove several points before a conviction
can be obtained and we can contest your charge on any point to get your
charges dropped or reduced.
The elements of armed robbery include:
- Deprive another person of their property without consent
- Taking the property from another while the owner is present
- The property needs to have been carried away or under the robber's control
- The intent is to permanently deprive the possessor
- The property was taken by violence or intimidation
- Property was taken using a dangerous weapon
As can be seen, there are several areas which can be challenged in your
defense. Handling such cases is complicated, however, and you should let
a trained Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer organize your case.
You have defenses I can use when fighting your charges. It may be that
you believed the property you took was in fact yours to take. Perhaps
you had every intention of returning the item in question or you had no
involvement in the case at all.

by negotiating with the prosecution outside of court to obtain the best
