Robbery in Kent

Our Kent Robbery Attorneys Can Help You Define Your Options

robberyIn Washington State, Robbery is defined as taking someone else's property against their will by using violence or intimidation. This means robbery cases are often heavily prosecuted, often resulting in life-altering repercussions, if convicted. Keep in mind that a felony robbery conviction could lead to a lengthy prison sentence and a fortune in fines.

Robbery is theft combined with a violent crime, which makes it far more serious than shoplifting. If a deadly weapon was used in the robbery, the punishments will be even more severe.

If you've been charged with robbery, it is paramount that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. Depending on the nature of the alleged crime, you could spend the rest of your life in prison. Contact one of our Kent robbery lawyers today and take steps to protect your interests.

Many people charged with robbery are rightfully concerned about the prospect of prison time, and are eager to find out if there is any way to have their charges dismissed. Your lawyer will want answers to some basic questions as they get started on your case.

  • What was the intent that lead to the robbery charge?
  • What were your actions when the alleged crime was committed?
  • Do your actions constitute a robbery?
