Las Vegas Robbery Attorney

Experienced Defense Against Robbery Charges in Clark County

A person is guilty of robbery when they forcibly take property or money of the person of another without their permission. This act often includes violence or threat of violence against the individual, their family, or another person in proximity at the time of the robbery. This is not the same as petty theft, shoplifting, or burglary since it involves taking property directly from the person or from their direct control. At the Law Office of Chip Siegel, Esq., we stand ready to defend you and your rights in the face of robbery charges.

What are the Penalties for Robbery in Nevada?

If convicted of robbery, you could face time in jail and high fines. The penalties are even more severe if it is armed robbery involving the display or use of a deadly weapon. Such weapons can be anything from a rock to a knife, though the most serious penalties are for armed robbery with a firearm, shotgun, rifle, or assault weapon.

Additionally, if you are convicted of robbery, the consequences can extend beyond prison and fines. You will have a serious black mark on your criminal record that is visible to anyone who conducts a background search, such as a potential employer. Your employer, friends, and family will have less respect or trust for you and will be far more hesitant to place you in a position of authority or responsibility over anything of value. Consult with a Las Vegas robbery lawyer right away if you've been arrested for robbery.

How To Defend Against Robbery Charges

While every case is unique, some common defenses against robbery charges may include:

  • Lack of Intent: Arguing that the accused did not intend to commit robbery is a common defense. For instance, if the prosecution cannot prove that the defendant had the specific intent to steal or use force, this may weaken the case.
  • Mistaken Identity: Asserting that the wrong person has been accused is another potential defense. This might involve presenting evidence that the eyewitness identification is unreliable or that the prosecution's evidence is insufficient to prove the defendant's involvement.
  • False Accusations: Claiming that the allegations are false and that the accuser has a motive to lie can be a defense strategy. This could involve presenting evidence of a personal vendetta or providing an alternative explanation for the accusations.
  • Alibi: Demonstrating that the defendant was not present at the scene of the alleged robbery during the incident can be a strong defense. This may involve presenting witnesses or other evidence supporting the defendant's alibi.
  • Duress or Coercion: Arguing that the defendant committed the robbery under duress or coercion may be a valid defense. This could involve presenting evidence that the defendant was threatened or forced to commit the crime.
  • Insufficient Evidence: Challenging the prosecution's evidence and arguing that it is insufficient to prove the elements of robbery beyond a reasonable doubt is a fundamental defense strategy. This could involve attacking the credibility of witnesses or the reliability of physical evidence.
  • Police Misconduct: If there are issues with how evidence was obtained or allegations of police misconduct, we may challenge the admissibility of certain evidence, potentially leading to its exclusion from trial.
  • Constitutional Violations: Asserting that the defendant's constitutional rights were violated during the arrest, questioning, or search and seizure may also be a defense strategy. This could lead to the suppression of evidence obtained through unconstitutional means.
