Penalties for Robbery in New York
Robbery is the most serious theft crime, and is defined as forcibly stealing from another. Robbery implies a level of violence connected with the offense, and such offenses are harshly punished in the state's criminal justice system. The penalties for the various classes of robbery convictions range from possible probation to 25 years in prison depending on the level of violence, if any, and the value of the property involved.
We know where the weaknesses are to be found in robbery prosecution and could challenge evidence collection methods, the interview process and the facts of the case. We will always attempt to have charges dismissed or gain an acquittal at trial. If that isn't possible, we will work tirelessly to have the charges reduced.
