What is Robbery?

Robbery is a form of theft but can be combined with other charges if weapons are used or injuries occur during the crime. These additional charges can include assault, illegal possession of a deadly weapon, and aggravated robbery. The stakes for robbery and associated charges are high; robbery and theft crimes can include:

  • Robbery: A robbery involves using violence or intimidation to take someone else's property, accomplished through verbal threats or physical harm.
  • Aggravated Robbery: If weapons like guns or knives are used during a robbery, it's classified as an aggravated or armed robbery.
  • Auto Theft/Carjacking: Nevada doesn't have a specific law for carjacking. It falls under grand larceny if a vehicle is stolen. Robbery or aggravated robbery charges may be added if violence or weapons are involved.
  • Burglary: A burglary is defined as unauthorized entry into any structure with the intent to commit a felony, assault, or battery; to commit theft; or to obtain property under pretenses.
  • Petit Larceny: Petit larceny involves unlawfully taking someone else's property to deprive them of it.
  • Shoplifting: Shoplifting can be classified as larceny or grand larceny, depending on the value of the merchandise taken and the circumstances surrounding the event.

What are the Penalties for Robbery in Nevada?

Robbery charges carry severe penalties in Las Vegas, including lengthy prison sentences. Judges often show little leniency towards robbery suspects, and prosecutors relentlessly pursue convictions.

A robbery conviction can carry a prison sentence of 2-15 years. If a weapon was used during the crime, 1-15 years can be added to the sentence. Given the serious threat a robbery charge poses to your freedom, securing the assistance of a lawyer who will work hard to protect your rights is essential.

Defenses Against Robbery Charges

Crafting a robust defense is essential to mitigating the impact of robbery charges. At Pariente Law Firm, P.C., we explore various defense strategies, including:

  • Lack of Intent: Challenging the prosecution's ability to prove the defendant's intent to permanently deprive the victim of their property can be a crucial defense strategy.
  • Mistaken Identity: If there is doubt about witness identification accuracy, our legal team diligently investigates to establish any inconsistencies.
  • False Accusations: Individuals may be falsely accused of robbery. We work to uncover any motives for false accusations and present evidence to refute them.
  • Coercion: If the defendant was coerced or forced to commit the robbery under duress, we explore this as a potential defense.
  • Miranda Rights Violation: If law enforcement does not inform the defendant of their Miranda rights during the arrest, we may challenge the admissibility of statements made by the accused.

Successfully defending against robbery charges requires a comprehensive understanding of criminal law and the ability to construct a defense strategy tailored to the unique aspects of each case. Our experienced Las Vegas robbery lawyers at Pariente Law Firm, P.C., are committed to tirelessly advocating for our clients and securing the best possible outcomes.
