Strong Defense From Armed Robbery Charges

For robbery charges to be classified as an armed robbery, the assailant must have a knife, gun or another weapon in their possession. It does not matter whether or not the weapon is actually used against the victim. Even threat of violence is enough to escalate the severity of the crime to an armed robbery.

A conviction can have serious consequences. While armed robbery is typically a state crime, an armed bank robbery is a federal crime and is subject to separate penalties, such as possible life imprisonment. Due to the severity of this crime, an accused individual should immediately seek representation from a Boston armed robbery defense attorney to protect their best interests.
