What is Vehicular Robbery?

Vehicular robbery, as defined under Ohio law, is a criminal act in which an individual uses force or threats to steal a motor vehicle or deprive the owner or operator of their vehicle. It's important to note that vehicular robbery goes beyond traditional car theft, as it involves using force, intimidation, or the threat of violence.

In these cases, the prosecution must prove that the accused knowingly used force, violence, or intimidation to take control of the vehicle. This could involve brandishing a weapon, using physical force to remove the driver from the vehicle, or making threats that instill fear in the victim. The key elements include force and the intent to take the vehicle without the owner's consent.

What Are the Penalties for Vehicular Robbery in Ohio?

Ohio takes vehicular robbery seriously, and the penalties for those convicted can be severe. The consequences for vehicular robbery can vary based on the specific circumstances of the case, but they typically include:

  • Felony Conviction: Vehicular robbery is typically charged as a felony in Ohio, which can result in significant jail time.
  • Prison Sentences: Those convicted of vehicular robbery can face substantial prison sentences. The length of the sentence will depend on factors such as the use of weapons, the degree of violence involved, and any prior criminal record.
  • Fines: Convicted individuals may be required to pay fines as part of their sentence.
  • Criminal Record: A vehicular robbery conviction can have lasting consequences, impacting an individual's ability to find employment, obtain housing, or even secure loans.
  • Loss of Driving Privileges: If the crime involved a stolen vehicle, the offender may also face the suspension of their driver's license.
  • Restitution: The court could order the defendant to pay restitution to the victim to cover any damages or losses incurred during the robbery.

Defenses Against Vehicular Robbery Charges

Some common defenses against vehicular robbery charges may include:

  • Lack of Intent: Demonstrating that you did not have the intent to commit vehicular robbery can be a viable defense. If it can be shown that you had the owner's consent to use the vehicle or that there was no evidence of force, intimidation, or violence, your charges may be reduced or dropped.
  • False Accusation: Sometimes, individuals are wrongly accused of vehicular robbery. We can investigate the circumstances of the case to identify any inconsistencies in the victim's testimony or other evidence that might point to a false accusation.
  • Mistaken Identity: We can examine whether there is any doubt about your identity as the perpetrator, which can be a strong defense against vehicular robbery charges.
  • Inadequate Evidence: We can review all evidence and ensure that it was obtained legally and meets the requirements for a conviction.

    "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.
