“Robbery is one of Pennsylvania’s most serious crimes. Depending on what prosecutors say you actually did, you’re facing anywhere between third- and first-degree felony charges. And a conviction? We’re talking massive prison sentences and tens of thousands in fines if they win. Don’t just hand over your future by pleading guilty; prosecutors haven’t yet met their burden of proof. Instead, call my office now and find out what we think of your case. It will be worth it.”

Do Prosecutors Actually Have a Robbery Case Against You?

Robbery is a crime involving the use or threat of serious force or injury. As our founder previously acknowledged, it is a felony-level crime, which means that it is among the most serious of charges. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has the authority to send you to prison and impose thousands of dollars in fines if convicted.

Under 18 Pa.C.S. § 3701, your Philadelphia robbery defense lawyer at Shuttleworth Law will review your situation to determine if it meets the statutory definition of robbery that prosecutors are claiming it is, including:

  • Situation 1. Threatening someone else with or intentionally putting them in fear of immediate serious bodily injury, or
  • Situation 2. Committing or threatening to commit a first- or second-degree felony, or
  • Situation 3. Inflicting serious bodily injury upon or threatening another with or intentionally putting them in fear of immediate bodily injury, or
  • Situation 4. Taking or removing property from someone else by force
  • Situation 5. Taking or removing money from a financial institution without permission by making a verbal or written demand on an employee

As you can see, each above-referenced situation requires prosecutors to prove that specific acts occurred. For example, take Situation 2: Do prosecutors have proof that you were committing a first- or second-degree felony? And if they think they do, does it meet the criteria of the crime committed?

These are critical issues to investigate when defending criminal charges. Hire the Philadelphia robbery defense lawyers at Shuttleworth Law to provide in-depth advice and legal resources that get to the bottom of your case.

PA Does Not Hold Back When Punishing Robbery Convictions

By now, you probably understand how serious your robbery charges are, as the Commonwealth punishes them as felonies. However, you might not realize that the potential penalties are basically life-changing and result in a loss of many good years if you go to prison.

Below, we have outlined these penalties according to their felony grading level:

  • First-degree robbery: Up to 20 years imprisonment and $25,000 in fines
  • Second-degree robbery: Up to ten years imprisonment and $25,000 in fines
  • Third-degree felony robbery: Up to seven years imprisonment and $10,000 in fines

Other penalties are on the line when facing a felony. Not only are you facing prison and fines, but you may also lose other rights, such as gun rights, driving privileges, and more. People with felony convictions also face additional scrutiny when applying for jobs or renting a home.

Our Philadelphia Robbery Defense Lawyers Achieve Results

Let’s not sugarcoat it: there are no guarantees when it comes to getting out of your charges. HOWEVER, prosecutors bear the burden of proof when it comes to securing a conviction. Accomplishing this objective is easier said than done.

That is why it is critical to hire the Philadelphia robbery defense lawyers at Shuttleworth Law. We hold the Commonwealth accountable by scrutinizing their methods, bringing in our own expert witnesses, questioning the background of the arresting officer, and other defensive strategies as appropriate.

Shuttleworth Law Takes a Client-Centered Approach
