We Take Your Armed Robbery Charges Seriously
Armed robbery and robbery by force are serious charges that can result in a sentence of up to 20 years in prison where you must serve 85% of your sentence without parole.
If you are facing armed robbery charges, you need a trusted attorney on your side as soon as possible. You do not want a “cut-rate” lawyer who will take a small fee and sell you out for a poor plea agreement or push you to plead guilty when you are not. Instead, choose a skilled, aggressive, and experienced violent crimes defense lawyer like Jack Venturi.
At Jack Venturi Law, we represent people in Middlesex County and throughout New Jersey who have been accused of committing armed robbery.
Armed Robbery In New Jersey
Most robberies in New Jersey are in the second degree. However, when the use or threat or a deadly weapon is involved, the crime is elevated to first-degree robbery.
You can be charged and convicted with armed robbery even if you never actually use your weapon. Simply being armed, gesturing with the weapon, or threatening to use the weapon can make you guilty of armed robbery.
If you are accused of armed robbery, you have a lot at stake. Your rights, your future and your freedom are on the line.
Potential penalties upon conviction include:
- Up to 20 years in prison
- Hefty fines
- Permanent criminal record
