Penalties for Armed Robbery
To be charged with armed robbery, prosecutors have the burden of proving that the theft occurred while the alleged victim was present. If there was a weapon uncovered, this might only enhance the armed robbery sentence further. Armed robbery is considered a felony and carries numerous consequences.
The consequences of an armed robbery conviction may include:
- Minimum 5 years in prison
- Up to life imprisonment
- Restitution to victims
A criminal conviction on record is permanent and damaging to your reputation and future. Prosecutors are relentless in their pursuit to secure a conviction, and the laws can be immensely unforgiving. Furthermore, jurors tend to be less sympathetic towards defendants, especially if there may be any acts of aggression or violence toward another person in the case. For those who are being convicted of armed robbery, your armed robbery sentence in Virginia can increase heavily if someone is fatally injured. We cannot stress enough the importance of having an experienced Virginia Beach armed robbery lawyer.
