Richmond Armed Robbery Attorney
Experienced Counsel from a Criminal Lawyer
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
- 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.
