Prince George’s County Robbery Lawyer

When facing a robbery charge in Maryland, an experienced robbery attorney can help you navigate what can be a complicated legal system.

Depending on the specific circumstances of your case, if found guilty of robbery, you can face a felony conviction and up to 15 years imprisonment.  Robbery is the taking and carrying away of property from someone else by force or threat of force, with the intent to deprive the victim of the property.  This means the prosecution must prove that you intended to keep the property from the victim permanently, or you only meant to return the property upon receipt of some type of compensation.   Property is anything of value, and examples include, but are not limited to, money, written documents or data, pets, utilities, food, and electronic equipment.  Armed robbery is comprised of the same elements as robbery, but with the use of a dangerous weapon, such as a knife or firearm.  The associated penalties for a guilty verdict on armed robbery are felony conviction and up to 20 years in prison.

For a more detailed explanation of these laws you can read the Maryland Official Code.
