Ohio Robbery Law


I have the experience necessary to defend an individual, adult or juvenile, against the charge of Robbery. Robbery has many forms.  The most severe is called Aggravated Robbery.  Lesser forms are called Robbery.

Aggravated Robbery is a felony of the first degree.  It requires a prison sentence of three to ten (3 to 10) years. After the prison sentence is served the convicted offender faces five (5) years of post-release control a type of community control sanction. Other forms of Robbery have a minimum sentence of six (6) months to a maximum sentence of eight (8) years depending on the type of crime you have been accused of.

Often times a firearm is alleged to have been used in these crimes. This can add on an additional one, three, five, or seven years that must be served before any time is served on the underlying Robbery. This means if you are convicted of using a firearm in an Aggravated Robbery and you pointed this firearm at someone, you would be looking at a minimum of 6 years in prison to a maximum of 13. This is all factually based but as you can see the amount of time served on these cases can be tremendous.

Many people are often charged with Robbery out of situations that are not really Robberies.  For example, sometimes a touch of a store security guard is enough to turn a shoplifting into a robbery. This means that you need attorneys that understand this, and can address this issue with the State of Ohio. I know how to defend you from these charges. It is important you contact me immediately.

 


Aggravated Robbery:  Jury says "Not Guilty!"

My client was fingered by the victim of an armed robbery three days after the robbery supposedly occurred.  I was able to show that at the time of the robbery, the victim was drunk.  Through questioning in front of the jury, I showed the victim was changing his story, even on the stand, even during the trial.

As important, I showed that the police made numerous and serious errors in their investigation.  I was able to get both the officer and the detective to admit to so many mistakes that I myself had a hard time not getting angry and upset at their behavior.

The jury went out with questions about a forty-five minute video recording of an interview done with my client.  They took the interview to the jury room.  The jury came back with a "not guilty" about an hour after starting deliberations.  If they watched the video, it took them fifteen minutes to decide and make out the forms.
