Columbus Robbery Defense Attorneys
Robbery is a felony that typically involves the use of force or the threat of force in an effort to take money or goods from another party. During the robbery, the offender may be carrying a deadly weapon and/or cause harm to another person. If you are facing robbery charges, you may be prosecuted in either state or federal court, depending on the specific circumstances. For example, bank robbery is a federal offense because it takes place on federally-insured property.
Like other violent crime felonies and federal charges, a robbery conviction can include a lengthy prison sentence. A robbery conviction will remain on your criminal record forever.
After you get out of prison, finding a job and a place to live will be difficult. Your future opportunities will be severely limited with a robbery conviction on your record.
