Considered a serious crime by San Antonio police officers and prosecutors alike, a robbery conviction can carry with it a range of devastating consequences.
With that in mind, it is highly advisable that anyone charged with robbery retain experienced legal representation as early on in the criminal process as possible. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you protect your rights at each and every step of the legal process, in addition to helping you build a comprehensive legal strategy.
When Theft Charges are Elevated to Robbery Charges
Theft charges and robbery charges are closely related to one another, though robbery charges typically carry much more severe consequences. Theft charges may be elevated to robbery charges:
- If, during an act of theft, harm is caused to the victim
- If, during an act of theft, the threat of harm is used
The elevation of theft charges to robbery charges can have a devastating impact upon a defendant should a conviction be achieved.
