Seattle Robbery Attorney

What is Robbery?

The crime of robbery is described in Washington criminal code RCW 9A.56.190. It states that a person commits robbery when he or she commits a theft of another person "by the use or threatened use of immediate force, violence, or fear of injury to that person or his or her property or the person or property of anyone." Unlike other theft crimes, robbery concerns a threat of harm and it is taken very seriously by both law enforcement and state prosecutors.

Type of Robbery Charges

Washington splits robbery offenses in two different categories: first degree and second degree robbery. These distinctions depend on the circumstances of the alleged offense.

First degree robbery must include one of the following factors:

  • The robbery of a financial institution
  • The possession of a deadly weapon
  • The exhibiting of a firearm or a deadly weapon
  • Bodily injury inflicted on the victim

What are the Penalties for Robbery?

  • First degree robbery - comes with a maximum possible sentence of life in prison.
  • Second degree robbery - which is defined as all other robberies without the previously listed factors—can result in up to 14 years in prison if a conviction is reached.

Hefty fines are also associated with either offense. Maximum penalties for robbery can be avoided. The legal team is ready to bring the insight and resources to your case to assess your legal options and formulate an effective defense strategy on your behalf.
