Robbery is different from burglary in that during a robbery, an individual threatens or uses force to obtain items belonging to another individual (Class 4 Felony). There are also more serious levels of robbery, including aggravated robbery (Class 3 Felony) - if a person is aided by one or more accomplices; or armed robbery (Class 2 Felony) - if a person is armed with, or threatens to use a deadly weapon during the course of the robbery. Penalties increase exponentially in cases where a weapon is involved. Depending on the severity of the offense, being convicted of robbery can result in incarceration, fines, community work service, restitution and probation. It is important to hire an attorney who is experienced in handling complex criminal cases, including robbery, burglary and other property crimes.Criminal Defense Lawyer Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe & the Entire Valley
