What is Armed Robbery?

Armed robbery refers to the criminal act of using a weapon to steal property or money from another person or a place, such as a business, while employing force, intimidation, or threats. In Florida, armed robbery is a serious felony offense.

Under state law, robbery is defined as the taking of money or property from someone else's possession with the intent to permanently or temporarily deprive them of it, and in the course of the taking, using force, violence, assault, or putting the victim in fear.

The term "armed" in armed robbery indicates that during the commission of the robbery, the perpetrator is armed with a weapon, such as a firearm, knife, or other dangerous weapon. The presence of a weapon escalates the seriousness of the offense and typically leads to harsher penalties upon conviction.

How Can You Defend Against Armed Robbery Charges?

Just because you have been arrested for armed robbery does not mean you will be convicted. The prosecution has the burden of proving that you committed the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a high burden of proof, and it is your right to defend against the charges.

Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to avoid a conviction by arguing:

  • You were not aware that you were in possession of a weapon
  • You did not use a weapon to commit the robbery
  • You were not involved in the theft
  • You were not involved in the robbery at all

If the evidence against you is strong, you may be able to secure a plea deal. Our Jacksonville armed robbery attorney can negotiate with the prosecution on your behalf and work to secure a favorable plea agreement, such as a reduced charge or a reduced sentence.
