Armed Robery Richmond va RICHMOND ARMED ROBBERY

Unfortunately, due to tough economic times, armed robbery statistics have risen. Armed robberies happen in banks, convenience stores, and businesses on a daily basis. If you have been charged with this violent crime, jail time could certainly be in your future.

In the Commonwealth of Virginia, a conviction of armed robbery is a felony. All of the following will factor into your charges and the sentencing guidelines:

  • The weapon used
  • Any injury or death during the robbery
  • What was stolen
  • Other criminal activity at the time
  • Past criminal history

What are the punishments I am facing?

Most armed robberies involve a firearm of some type. If convicted of armed robbery with a gun you face a 3-year minimum incarceration just for having the gun. If someone was injured, this would be a different felony with up to 20 years' imprisonment and a fine of up to $100,000.00. Then the minimum 3 years for the gun is also added. Should someone die during the armed robbery, you would have another separate Felony and may spend your life behind bars.
