What is Robbery?

Robbery is a serious criminal offense involving taking another person's property through force, threats, intimidation, or violence. It is considered a theft crime, but what distinguishes it from other theft offenses is the element of force or fear involved. The intention to permanently deprive the property owner and use or threat of force sets robbery apart.

Robbery can encompass various situations, such as a street mugging, a home invasion, or even a robbery committed with a weapon. Whether you're facing charges related to armed robbery, aggravated robbery, or another form of robbery, our team has the expertise to navigate the complex legal landscape and build a robust defense strategy tailored to your case.

What are the Penalties for Robbery in Ohio?

In Ohio, robbery is taken very seriously by the legal system, and the penalties upon conviction can be severe. The consequences you might face depend on the specific circumstances of the offense, including whether a weapon was used, the degree of violence employed, and your prior criminal record. Generally, robbery is classified as a felony offense in Ohio.

Penalties for robbery can include:

  • Imprisonment: Conviction of robbery can lead to a significant term of imprisonment, ranging from several years to even decades, depending on the severity of the offense.
  • Fines: Besides imprisonment, you may face substantial fines as part of your sentence.
  • Probation: The court might impose probation terms upon release from prison, including regular check-ins, mandatory counseling, and restrictions on your activities.
  • Criminal Record: A robbery conviction results in a permanent criminal record that can have a lasting impact on various aspects of your life, including employment opportunities, housing, and more.

Defenses Against Robbery Charges

Being charged with robbery does not mean you are automatically guilty. There are various defenses that skilled attorneys can employ to protect your rights and build a strong case on your behalf. Some potential defenses include:

  • Lack of Intent: Robbery requires the intent to permanently deprive the owner of their property. If there is doubt about your intent, it could weaken the prosecution's case.
  • Mistaken Identity: In some cases, witnesses might misidentify the perpetrator due to poor lighting, stress, or other factors. Challenging the accuracy of identifications can be a viable defense strategy.
  • Coercion or Duress: This might be a valid defense to explore if you were forced to commit the robbery under threat or coercion.
  • Insufficient Evidence: A skilled attorney will examine the evidence against you to determine if it is strong enough to support a conviction. If there are weaknesses in the case, they can be exploited to your advantage.

    "Patrick and his team are the only choice!"
    My husband was forced to defend himself at our home but that put him in jail. I first went with another lawyer, Mike Mills, who took my money and that was it. Feeling hopeless, I contacted Patrick’s team and they didn’t disappoint. Within 3 hours, Patrick was at jail speaking with my husband and a few days later, Patrick had him home. When you call the office, everyone helps you. You are not just another case to them; I know and experienced it. They are a team you want to be on your family’s side! Thank you Patrick and Laura and team - you are the best, thank you!

    "When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging."
    My family and I have used Patrick for different cases. A child custody as well as DUI. Initially you may feel scared and want to keep calling but in the end he has always proven that he is the best of the best. When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging. He knows what he's doing. Child custody WON! DUI best possible outcome! I wouldn't hire anyone but him. I highly recommend! Thanks Mr. Mulligan and staff!

    "Best Lawyer ever."
    Patrick Mulligan took on my case in May 1996 not knowing how things would go. My case being his first Big case. He saved my life. I have still to this day will always remember and be Thankful to him for trusting and believing in me. I was a mother of a daughter 19 months old who as killed by my boyfriend at the time. The state tried to prove me for child endangering and wanting me to serve 18 months in prison. Parick didnt know until that point what he had gotten into . Patrick did everything he could to prove I was a good mother. It was almost a year after my daughters life was taken. We went to trail and I stood on the stand with all my friends and Dr.'s. Patrick worked so hard for me and we won and here I am 15 years later . I found his web site and had to tell my story. Anyone who needs his help he will work as hard as he can for anyone he believs in. I'm so gald to see he is still in Cinti helping people. Thank you Patrick. I will talk to you soon.

    "I would recommend him to anybody."

    "Help in the Middle of the Night"
    Mr. Mulligan made all the difference in my case. Through his yellow page ad, I was able to reach him in the middle of the night, after my ex-wife had me falsely arrested for Domestic Violence Verbal. He was prompt in coming to my assistance. He went out of his way to help reach my family so that they could get me released from holding. He answered all my questions and walked me through the entire process. He was able to get the results I was hoping for at the pre-trial, so that we did not actually have to go through an actual trial. Mr. Mulligan exceeded all my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a similar unfortunate situation. He was a Godsend for me.
