Being charged with robbery can be an incredibly scary and overwhelming experience. However, an experienced criminal defense lawyer has the knowledge and skills to thoroughly analyze the prosecution’s case against you and build a strong defense. With the right legal strategy, many robbery charges can be reduced or even dismissed.
If you’ve been accused of robbery, don’t go through it alone. Read on to learn how an experienced criminal defense lawyer can challenge your charges.
After reviewing the prosecution’s evidence and police reports, a skilled criminal defense lawyer will be able to identify any weaknesses in their case – and these weaknesses can be used to get charges reduced or dropped. For example, if a witness identification of the perpetrator was made under poor visibility conditions, this could be challenged. Or, if the prosecution is relying heavily on circumstantial evidence that doesn’t directly link the defendant to the crime, a lawyer can argue reasonable doubt.
Your lawyer may also uncover improper police procedures – like a search made without probable cause or a suspect interrogation that violated rights. Bringing these issues before a judge can get damaging evidence thrown out.
An experienced criminal defense attorney will know how to effectively negotiate with the prosecuting attorney and how to leverage weaknesses in their case. Many cases can be resolved through a plea bargain where the defendant pleads guilty to a lesser charge in exchange for dropping the more serious robbery offense. Other times charges get dismissed completely.
Your lawyer’s reputation and relationship with the prosecutor can be invaluable. Their ability to effectively communicate weaknesses in the state’s case and your defense arguments may lead to a favorable resolution before trial.
If police obtained evidence illegally – like through an improper search or coercive interrogation – your lawyer can file a motion to suppress that evidence so it cannot be used against you. Suppressing eyewitness identifications, defendant statements, or physical evidence can cripple the prosecution’s case.
Your attorney may argue the search of your property or person violated the Fourth Amendment and its probable cause standards. Or they could claim your confession was involuntary under Miranda requirements for informing you of your rights. Getting key evidence thrown out can lead to reduced or dismissed charges.
Beyond refuting the prosecution’s accusations, your lawyer may also make an affirmative defense as to why you are not criminally liable even if involved in the alleged robbery. Common defenses to robbery charges include:
If your lawyer can demonstrate one of these defenses fits your situation, you could be acquitted of the charges.
For some first-time offenders, an experienced lawyer may be able to negotiate entrance into a diversion program as an alternative to jail time. These programs provide supervision and rehabilitation services while charges are held in abeyance – often resulting in dismissed charges upon successful completion.
Diversion programs may include counseling, education, community service, and restitution to victims. Your lawyer can argue how this kind of structured intervention would better serve justice rather than imprisonment.
If convicted of robbery, your attorney’s advocacy at sentencing is critical for minimizing punishment. They will present mitigating factors about your background and character, emphasize any victim restitution, highlight your rehabilitative efforts, and argue for the lowest possible prison term and fines.
Your lawyer may also inform the court about unique hardships imprisonment would create for your family and dependents. And they can appeal to the judge’s discretion to hand down a more lenient or alternative sentence.
