Robbery Defense Lawyer in Gainesville
Robbery is defined as the taking of money or property from another while using physical force or fear to intimidate or injure the victim. If a deadly weapon is used then the charge is called an "armed robbery." If the victim suffers injury, then "aggravated robbery" is the charge.
