For determining sentences, Arizona law distinguishes types of robbery into three categories: basic robbery, aggravated, and armed. A defense lawyer will help you determine the type of robbery and plan the best defense for the charges you may face.
For someone to commit robbery, the perpetrator must take the property of another against his or her will.
If a court convicted you of a crime and placed you on probation, it may allow you to shorten or even avoid jail. However, probation is not without stipulations. If you violated your probation in Arizona, depending on the seriousness of the new and old offense, if it was a misdemeanor or a felony, you could face more jail time or have further regulation as conditions of your probation.
If you are ever under suspicion of a crime or subject to a criminal investigation in Arizona, law enforcement may conduct a search of your home and belongings to find evidence. The Constitution’s fourth amendment protects citizens from unlawful searches, and searches require a warrant to be lawful.
Many clients and criminal defense attorneys push through court cases in the hopes of gaining a favorable outcome for their side. Depending on the type of case, a victory can bring both financial compensation and a sense of closure. For personal injury victims, a win in court means the liable party will cover some or all medical costs and back pay, and victims can focus on their recovery instead of worrying about bills.
Any criminal offense in Arizona has serious consequences; however, the use of a weapon during the offense can bring harsher sentencing. For example, the law can classify an assault charge as a misdemeanor, but it can be a felony if the perpetrator has a weapon.
