Denver Robbery Lawyer

Serving Denver and Surrounding Counties

When you hear the word “theft,” the first thing people think of is a form of robbery. In short, robbery is a theft crime which involves stealing property from someone in another person’s presence using force, threat, or intimidation. This can include a person with a gun holding up a bank, someone brandishing a knife to get a woman to surrender her purse in a dark alley, or a criminal forcing someone to open a door with a vague threat.

Penalties for being found guilty of robbery can be extremely serious, which means you should not hesitate to retain representation before facing your prosecution. My name is David L. Owen Jr., and at my law firm, the Law Offices of David L. Owen, Jr., P.C., my team and I recognize the importance of quality, knowledgeable representation for criminal prosecutions.

Three Types of Robbery

There are three recognized forms of robbery in the state of Colorado, each with a different degree of seriousness. The key points for each case include weather the use of a deadly weapon was involved, and what items were stolen.

The three types of robbery are:

  • Robbery: stealing something while using the threat of force or violence
  • Aggravated robbery: stealing something while using the threat of force or violence while brandishing a deadly weapon.
  • Aggravated robbery of controlled substances: stealing a controlled substance while using the threat of force or violence

Penalties for Robbery

Simple robbery is a class 4 felony, which can net you up to six years in prison and a large fine (between $2,000 and $500,000). However, if the victim of the crime is an “at-risk” individual, such as an elder or a disabled person, you will go to prison for a minimum of four years. An aggravated robbery charge can carry a maximum prison sentence of up to 32 years in prison, and up to 48 years if it involves controlled substances.
