Aggressive Raleigh Theft Defense Attorneys

Armed robbery is considered a violent felony in North Carolina. It involves:

  • The taking or attempted taking of the property of another
  • By use of force, display of force or threat of force

Simply possessing a weapon during a robbery, without using it, may mean that you will face armed robbery charges rather than common law robbery charges. Both are felony criminal offenses: an armed robbery is punished as a Class D offense and robbery without a weapon is punished as a Class G felony offense. In some cases, your criminal defense strategy may involve a plea to common law robbery if armed robbery if you have been charged with armed robbery. In other cases, it may be appropriate to seek dismissal of the violent theft offense or to fight the charges at trial.
