Santa Clarita Robbery Defense Attorney

Charged with a robbery offense?

Robbery involves using force or fear to take personal property from another in his or her immediate presence. Under California Penal Code Section 213, robbery can result in a prison sentence of up to nine years. The term may vary depending on the location in which the robbery took place, whether you acted alone or with others, and other circumstances regarding the incident. It is a felony offense and California's "three strikes law" applies. The prison term may thus be doubled or increased to life in prison if you have one or more felony convictions on your record. It is therefore vital that you contact a Santa Clarita criminal defense lawyer immediately if you have been charged with robbery. Your entire future may depend on it.

Defending Robbery Charges

The severe penalties for a robbery conviction demand an aggressive defense. With over 40 years of combined criminal defense experience, Law Offices of David M. Wallin is dedicated to fighting for the justice you deserve. Our legal team will investigate all aspects of your case, including the testimony and evidence against you and the police procedures used in your case. Any violation of your rights or incongruities in these areas will be used to your advantage as fully as possible. It is possible we may be able to have your charges dismissed or any evidence against you deemed inadmissible.

Robbery, by definition, requires the use of force or fear. If force cannot be proven and the victim was not in fact fearful of the situation, robbery charges are not valid and we may be able to have your charges reduced. Ultimately, we will pursue an acquittal and do all we can toward this goal.
