Gainesville Armed Robbery Attorney
Charged with armed robbery in Gainesville?
Armed Robbery is the forcible taking or property from another using a weapon. If you have been charged with this offense, your primary concern at this time should be to locate an experienced and practiced lawyer to defend you. It is never advised to represent yourself because you will be facing strong prosecution from the state by attorneys who want to put you in jail prison for many years. It is critical that you contact a criminal defense lawyer in Gainesville who will provide you with the aggressive defense you need.
The penalties depend on the nature of the weapon. If the weapon was a deadly such as a gun or knife, the penalty is a long prison sentence for as many years as the judge finds suitable, but not for life. For use of a lesser weapon, the penalties are not as severe but it is still a first degree felony. The penalties include a prison sentence, fines, probation, restitution of what was taken and a mark on your record.
