Robbery Laws in Texas

Robbery is a criminal offense defined as the act of using force, intimidation, or the threat of violence to take another person's property, money, or valuables. It is a serious crime in Texas, and the legal system treats it as such. A conviction for robbery can lead to severe consequences, including imprisonment and a permanent criminal record.

Robbery can be classified into various categories, including:

  • Aggravated Robbery: This involves using a deadly weapon, such as a firearm, during the commission of a robbery. Aggravated robbery carries even more severe penalties.
  • Armed Robbery: Armed robbery refers to a robbery committed with a weapon, even if it is not a deadly weapon. Carrying a weapon while committing a robbery can lead to enhanced charges.
  • Bank Robbery: Robbing a bank or financial institution is a federal offense, and it can lead to federal charges with potentially more severe penalties.
  • Home Invasion: When a robbery takes place in someone's home, it may be considered a home invasion, which is treated with great seriousness in the legal system.

Penalties for Robbery in Texas

Robbery convictions in Texas can result in severe consequences, including:

  • Imprisonment: Individuals convicted of robbery may face significant prison time, depending on the severity of the offense.
  • Fines: Robbery convictions can come with substantial fines.
  • Criminal Record: A robbery conviction will lead to a permanent criminal record, which can have a lasting impact on your life, affecting your employment prospects and housing options.
  • Probation: In some cases, individuals convicted of robbery may be placed on probation, which comes with strict conditions, such as regular check-ins with a probation officer and adherence to specific rules.
  • Restitution: If the court orders restitution, you may be required to compensate the victim for any losses or damages resulting from the robbery.

How to Defend Against Robbery Charges

Some common defenses against robbery charges may include:

  • Lack of Intent: Proving that you did not have the intention to commit robbery can be a viable defense. Misunderstandings or misidentifications may play a role in establishing this defense.
  • Mistaken Identity: It is not uncommon for witnesses to mistakenly identify the wrong person as the perpetrator. We can help cast doubt on the accuracy of such identifications.
  • Alibi: If you have a solid alibi that places you elsewhere at the time of the alleged robbery, this can be a powerful defense.
  • Inadequate Evidence: If there is insufficient evidence to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, we can challenge the prosecution's case.
  • Self-Defense: In some cases, you may have used force to protect yourself or others, which can be a valid defense against robbery charges.
  • Police Misconduct: If law enforcement violated your rights or engaged in misconduct during your arrest or investigation, this can be grounds for challenging the charges.
