Phoenix Robbery Attorney
In Phoenix, robbery is significantly more serious than theft. Robbery involves the theft of property, money, or services while using physical force, fear, or intimidation against a victim.

Robbery Laws in Phoenix
In Phoenix, robbery is usually a class 4 felony charge, with punishment ranging from probation, to almost 4 years of prison. Fines, fees and restitution will be sought by the government. Aggravated robbery is much more serious a class 3 felony, with punishment ranging from probation, to 15 years of prison. An aggravated robbery means the offender had an accomplice, a weapon, or inflicted bodily harm on the victim. Robbery using a deadly weapon – or even the simulation of a deadly weapon – is “armed robbery.” This is a class 2 felony in Arizona, punishable by mandatory prison, up to 21 years.
In Arizona, a defendant on trial for suspected robbery may receive a “presumptive” sentence. A presumptive sentence is the middle term of prison, between the minimum and maximum prison term. If the defendant has never committed robbery in the past, they may receive the presumptive sentence. If it is a repeat offense, or the circumstances of the crime are particularly heinous, the courts can decide to increase the sentence closer to the maximum. A defense attorney can increase the odds of receiving a minimum or presumptive sentence for robbery in Arizona.
