Since the stakes are always high for someone accused of robbery, it is always in their best interest to enlist the legal support of the Las Vegas criminal law team with vast and varied experience in this realm.
Robbery is a very serious offense. It’s considered a violent crime because it requires the use of force or violence.
In Las Vegas, prosecutors diligently pursue robbery cases. If you or a loved one is facing a robbery charge, it’s crucial that you consult with an experienced and skilled attorney. Without the assistance of qualified counsel, it is very difficult to avoid conviction and the severe penalties that result from a robbery conviction.
NRS 200.380 defines robbery and the penalties that go along with it.
Robbery contains the following elements:
- Robbery is the unlawful taking of personal property.
- The taking is from another person or in that person’s presence
- The taking is against his or her will
- The taking is by means of force, violence, or the immediate or future fear of injury to his or her person, property, or the person or property of a member of his or her family or anyone else in his or her company at the time of the robbery.
Robbery is a “category B” felony. Robbery is punishable by 2 to 15 years in a state prison. That penalty can be increased if the robbery is committed with the use of a deadly weapon.
Quite often, Robbery charges also include a deadly weapon enhancement. That means the State is alleging that the person used a deadly weapon in the commission of the Robbery. When this happens, a Robbery charge becomes much more serious and the consequences become much more severe. If a person is convicted of Robbery With Use of a Deadly Weapon, the charge becomes non-probationable, meaning that the sentencing judge must sentence the individual to at least three years in a Nevada State Prison.
