Washington Armed Robbery Charges

Robbery occurs when an individual takes or attempts to take something of value from another person using violence or threats of violence.  When a weapon is used to facilitate the robbery, it becomes armed robbery which is considered to be one of the most violent types of crimes a person can commit.  Washington law punishes armed robbery offenders very harshly so if you have been charged with this type of violent crime you are going to need representation from one of our exceptional attorneys.  A Seattle violent crimes lawyer will be an integral part of your case, handling all aspects of your charges from the initial arrest to your trial.  It will be very beneficial to your armed robbery case to have an aggressive legal advocate fighting for your freedom every step of the way. 

Under Washington violent crimes law, robbery can be classified in two different ways:

  • Robbery in the First Degree:  Robbery in the First Degree is a Class A felony and can be charged if during the robbery or while fleeing the robbery site, the defendant is armed with a deadly weapon, displays what appears to be a deadly weapon or inflicts bodily injury against another using the weapon.  First degree robbery can also be charged if the robbery is committed against a financial institution. 
  • Robbery in the Second Degree:  Robbery in the Second Degree is a Class B felony and can be charged if no weapon is used during the commission of the crime and if no one is injured during the act. 

Seattle Attorneys Defending Clients Charged with Armed Robbery

Armed robbery is often committed in banks that are federally insured, which will make it a federal offense.  Federal crimes will be handled at Federal Court, and federal prosecutors and judges are known for being particularly harsh when handling violent crimes such as armed robbery.  If armed robbery is charged as a federal offense, you will need a defense lawyer who is capable of handling federal crimes in the intense setting of the Federal Court System.  Our violent crime attorneys will provide you with skilled and aggressive counsel in the face of federal criminal charges and you will have a much better chance of avoiding a conviction when you choose our firm to represent you.
