Armed Robbery

East Brunswick Armed Robbery Attorney

Arrested for Armed Robbery in Freehold or East Brunswick?

The act of "armed" robbery occurs when a person takes something from another person while using violence, intimidation or threats while carrying a dangerous weapon. A person can be convicted of armed robbery even if they failed to discharge or use the weapon. In fact, merely discharging a weapon in the air or displaying the weapon is enough to pursue a conviction against the person. If you have been arrested for armed robbery, I urge you to contact an attorney from my firm, The Law Offices of Ryan E. Gilbert, LLC right away.

Under state law, armed robbery is referred to as an indictable criminal offense that is categorized as a first degree crime. A first degree crime is one of the most serious criminal offenses anyone can face. The penalties for armed robbery range from 10 to 20 years in state prison. Furthermore, first degree crimes are considered to have a "presumption of imprisonment," meaning if you are found guilty of armed robbery, you will be sent to prison.

Comprehensive Guide to Armed Robbery Charges in NJ

Robbery is a crime of the second degree, except it is a crime in the first degree when during the course of committing the theft the offender attempts to kill someone, purposely inflicts or attempts to inflict serious bodily injury, or is armed with, or uses or threatens the immediate use of a deadly weapon.

What many people may not realize is that in New Jersey a dangerous weapon is not limited to a firearm or a knife. It can be any weapon that the victim would reasonably believe is capable of causing serious bodily injury or death. This means that if you are facing first degree armed robbery charges, you could be facing up to 20 years in prison even if you merely threatened to harm someone with a dangerous weapon, but didn't actually carry out that threat.

    "Great job protecting my future"
    Ryan was a trusted adviser throughout the course of my legal issues. I was unfamiliar with legal proceedings and Ryan was able to explain to me my legal situation, and risks associated with various defenses and decisions I had to make. He took the time to explain all the scenarios to my satisfaction which gave me piece of mind and comfort. Ryan was also very responsive through various forms of communications (phone, email, text) which made keeping in contact convenient throughout the process. Ryan showed up on time (early in fact) to various appointments and appeared to handle relationship building effectively with opposing attorneys and the prosecutor. At the end of the day, I was very satisfied with the work done by Ryan as the outcome of my legal matter was better than I had expected and kept my reputation in tact, which undoubtedly will help me pursue my future career/professional ambitions.

    "Professionalism at its best"
    Mr. Gilbert has made my case easy and clear to understand without all the legal jargon. He took time to help me clearly understand my case and kept me updated with all occurrences. Also, the case had been postponed and he waited alongside and had a friendly chat at the nearby Starbucks and besides giving me a great case result, he made me feel as if I had someone by my side. Patient, honest, and soft spoken, Ryan is not someone else whom just told me what to do and I just say yes too, like previous attorneys I had. I will always suggest and use Ryan Gilbert as my attorney.
