Robbery Defense Attorney in Fort Myers

Defense Against Robbery Charges

If the theft of another’s property or money is committed by force, Florida State legislation considers it a criminal act of robbery. While the details of a robbery description can change depending on what was taken and how it was taken, and whether or not a deadly weapon was involved at some point, all forms of robbery are serious violations that are punishable by strict sentencing. Anyone accused of robbery should act quickly to retain reliable legal counsel.
