Georgetown Armed Robbery Defense Attorney
I Can Fight to Protect Your Rights.
In the state of Texas, robbery is described as committing an act of theft with the intent to obtain or maintain control of another person's property, and in the commission of such a theft, intentionally, knowingly or recklessly causing, or threatening to cause, bodily injury to another. These charges can be elevated to a more serious felony offense if aggravating factors were involved. For example, Texas Penal Code Chapter 29 § 29.03 explains that one could be charged with aggravated robbery, which is also known as "armed robbery," if they have, during the commission of the theft:
- Caused serious bodily injury to another person;
- Used or exhibited a deadly weapon; or
- Caused bodily injury to an elderly or disabled person.
The Penalties for Armed Robbery in Texas
Armed robbery charges are extremely serious, as this offense is typically prosecuted as a first degree felony in Texas. A conviction could land you in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for life, or any term of imprisonment that is between 5 and 99 years, so it is imperative that you consult a Georgetown criminal defense lawyer from The Law Office of Clovis Martin as soon as you have been arrested. In some cases, you may even be asked to pay a fine as high as $10,000. With an aggressive legal advocate on your side, you can fight to have the charges against you reduced or even dismissed. Your attorney can also fight to have you placed in a pre-trial intervention program, in lieu or prison, if you qualify.
