In today’s tough economic times, robbery and aggravated robbery are becoming increasingly common. When a person is desperate for money, they may not consider the serious legal consequences that may result from being caught. Prosecutors aggressively charge those accused of aggravated robbery, and often attempt to charge defendants with as many separate crimes as possible. You may be charged with aggravated robbery, a felony, even if no one was hurt during the incident in question. You may be facing an extensive prison sentence as well as a lifelong impact on the rest of your life. It is important to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney today.

Criminal defense attorneys in Arkansas defending felony robbery charges
A person may be charged with aggravated robbery even if nobody was injured during the incident. Aggravated robbery may be charged if a person attempts to take property from another while armed with a deadly weapon, gives the impression of having a deadly weapon, or inflicts or attempts to inflict death or serious injury upon another person. That means you may be charged with this offense even if you were not actually armed, but simply made statements suggesting that you would harm a person if they did not cooperate with you. If someone was injured during an aggravated robbery, you may face extreme prison time, and if a death resulted then you may be facing a capital murder charge.
