Orlando Area Robbery Defense
Robbery is the taking of property of another by use of force, violence, assault, or putting in fear. This is found under chapter 812 of the Florida statutes. This is a very serious felony offense. If suspected of-, or if arrested for-, robbery, immediately invoke your right to remain silent. Do not talk to the police. Hire a criminal defense attorney immediately after finding one that you are confident in. Criminal attorneys may offer free consultations - take advantage of this. A robbery that involves a deadly weapon is classified as a First Degree Felony.

Robbery is a Very Serious Offense
There is nothing to take lightly for the person charged with robbery. Convictions for robbery will carry a prison term if not properly defended. The one exception may be "robbery by sudden snatching" which I explain below. If a person is charged with robbery they are looking at jail or prison if found guilty.
Robbery by Sudden Snatching
Think of the guy that runs by a little old lady and grabs her purse. This is robbery by sudden snatching. It is the taking of property from another with either (1) any force beyond the effort necessary to obtain possession of the property, or (2) any resistance to the taking was given by the victim, or (3) the victim was hurt in any way by the taking. It has many more forms than the example given above. The lowest form of this would not involve a weapon. To illustrate how serious all robberies are, a robbery by sudden snatching without a weapon by a person with no priors would score out on the guideline scoresheet to a minimum 22 months in prison.
