Armed Robbery Lawyer in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Armed Robbery Attorney

Armed robbery is a felony offense in California and involves the use of a weapon in carrying out the crime of robbery.

Robbery is defined by California Penal Code Section 211as a crime of taking the property of another from their possession by force or fear. Armed robbery is a much more serious crime than robbery because it involves the use of a weapon.

Penalties for armed robbery can result in fines of up to $100,000 and imprisonment of up to 40 years. The sentencing depends on numerous factors such as the severity of the crime and the existence of any priors. For example, the use of a gun during a robbery can add 10 years to the sentence and the discharge of a gun during the robbery can add 20 years to the sentence.
