Have You Been Charged with Robbery?

Contact a Skilled Atlanta Criminal Defense Lawyer Now

Few theft crimes are judged as harshly as robbery, primarily because they are often considered violent crimes, as well. Robbery is generally defined as theft that occurs under the imminent threat of harm or violence. When there are weapons involved, it is considered armed robbery—and even more serious charge with harsher consequences.

If you have been accused of robbery, then we invite you to contact The Fiddes Law Firm now. Our founding attorney is a former Senior Prosecutor with more than 15 years of experience defending the rights of our clients and ensuring that their voices are heard before the law. Our reputation has been built on not only frequent reductions and dismissals for our clients but a 100% victory record in the Georgia Court of Appeals.

Face your robbery charge with confidence. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.

Different Robbery Charges in Georgia

O.C.G.A. § 16-8-40 describes the crime of robbery as theft that occurs "by use of force, by sudden snatching, by intimidation, by use of threat or coercion, or by placing such a person in fear of serious bodily injury to himself or to another." There are other factors however, that can change the way a robbery is viewed in court.

Aggravating factors of robbery in Georgia include:

  • Victims who are 65 years old or older
  • The use of weapons (armed robbery, O.C.G.A. § 16-8-41)
  • The theft of a pharmacy

Penalties vary depending on the alleged circumstances of the offense. Simple robbery, with no aggravating factors, can result in one to 20 years in prison. The presence of these aggravating factors, however, can make the penalties more serious.
