Orange County Robbery Attorney

Going Above and Beyond to Deliver Effective Counsel

In California, robbery is a felony offense. That means no matter the property you're accused of taking, if you're convicted, you could be looking at spending several years behind bars. A guilty verdict also results in a mark on your criminal record, and any time you apply for something, such as a house or job, and the institution conducts a background check, that information will show up and could affect the final decision. The consequences of a conviction are far-reaching, which is why it is crucial to have an attorney on your side who will work toward minimizing the punishments you could face.

What Is Robbery?

California Penal Code 211 PC defines robbery as taking someone else's property without their consent.

The specific elements of the law are as follows:

  • Taking personal property that was
  • In someone else's possession, which was
  • Either physically on them or nearby
  • Against that person's will, and
  • With the use of force

According to the law, use of force involves placing someone in fear of:

  • Injury to them, their property, or their family; or
  • Injury to another person or that person's property

If you are charged with robbery, the prosecutor must prove all elements beyond a reasonable doubt to land a conviction. When you have a skilled lawyer on your side, they can spot weaknesses in the case against you and develop a compelling defense on your behalf. Attorney Jacqueline Goodman is ready to be that lawyer for you.

How Is Robbery Penalized?

In California, robbery is separated into 2 degrees: first and second. The punishments for a conviction depend on how the offense was charged.
