Armed Robbery

Armed Robbery Defense

Challenge Your Case with Phoenix Theft Crime Lawyers

Saying you'll go to trial - and not bluffing about it - can be everything in a criminal case, especially one involving theft crime charges. It's because trial might be necessary in order to make the government prove its case, to make it show that the case against you might not be as strong as the government says it is.

In short, even though you are innocent till proven guilty, you still need to defend your innocence if you've been arrested and charged with armed robbery. And to do that, you will need a defense lawyer who doesn't bluff when it comes to trial.

As former prosecutors, our lawyers of Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. don't bluff. We explore every opportunity to get charges dismissed while preparing to make your case before a judge and jury. We defend people in Phoenix and throughout Arizona on armed robbery charges. Contact us by email or call (602) 842-6762​ for a free consultation.

What is robbery?

We know you don't particularly care what robbery is from a legal standpoint. What matters is how what the government is saying you did will impact your case.

Some important questions pertaining to your case are:

  • Does the government say you were armed with a deadly weapon (like a loaded handgun) or a simulated deadly weapon (like a replica or fake gun)?
  • Does the government accuse you of using or threatening to use a deadly weapon (like a gun), a dangerous instrument (like a knife or a baseball bat), or a fake deadly weapon?

Any way you slice it, the law says it's armed robbery even if the gun wasn't loaded, even if the gun was never drawn or pointed at anyone. A finger pointed through a pocket can be made into armed robbery if the alleged victim thought it was a weapon.

This means a class 2 felony with a mandatory prison sentence of at least 7 years up to 21 years if you're convicted.
