What is Robbery?

Robbery involves the unlawful taking of property from another person through the use of force or threats. This crime differs from theft or burglary because it includes confrontation with the victim and the use or threat of violence. In Kansas, robbery is categorized into two types:

  • Simple Robbery: This type occurs when force or the threat of force is used to take property directly from another individual.
  • Aggravated Robbery: This type includes additional factors such as the use of a deadly weapon or causing bodily harm to the victim during the robbery.

The penalties for robbery in Kansas are severe and can have long-lasting impacts on your life. The specific penalties depend on whether the charge is simple or aggravated robbery:

Defending Against Robbery Charges

Facing a robbery charge does not mean a conviction is inevitable. There are several potential defenses that an experienced Overland Park robbery lawyer can employ to challenge the prosecution's case:

  • Insufficient Evidence: Demonstrating that the evidence presented does not meet the burden of proof required to establish the defendant's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • Wrongful Identification: Contending that the defendant was not the perpetrator of the robbery, supported by alibis or other evidence that clears the defendant.
  • Coercion or Duress: Arguing that the defendant was compelled to commit the robbery due to threats or pressure from another party, leaving them with no reasonable alternative.
  • Absence of Intent: Arguing that the defendant did not intend to use force or threats to take the property from the victim.
  • Baseless Accusations: Demonstrating that the charges are unfounded and possibly driven by motives such as personal grudges or misunderstandings.

Testimonials

Client-Centered Legal Represntation
    "Robert Hung in on My Case and We Prevailed in a Bogus Battery Case"
    Robert hung in on my case and we prevailed in a bogus battery case. It was a bit of a Mexican standoff with the prosecutor, but he got my case dismissed when it came down to crunch time. I would recommend his services to anyone!
    Josh T.
    "Robert Quickly Found out What Actions I Could Pursue with the Moving Violation I Received"
    Robert quickly found out what actions I could pursue with the moving violation I received. He took care of everything for me, and all I had to was give him the paperwork. I highly recommend Robert for consultation as my moving violation was skillfully changed to a non-moving violation and kept off my record/insurance.
    Mike
    "Friendly, Reliable, and Professional"
    Chris was great! I was involved in a car accident at a stop light and was given a ticket for following too close. The girl I hit even said it wasn't my fault, however I was still given a citation. I contacted Chris to help me get my ticket reduced to a non-moving violation after several people told me it couldn't be done since I was involved in an accident. I provided Chris with all the details of the accident and he said he would take care of it. After a few exchanged emails, Chris attended my court date and got the job done! For a small fee, my ticket was reduced to a non-moving violation. I would encourage anyone to use Chris' services because he was friendly, reliable, and professional.
    Happy Client
    "I appreciate all of his expert help making the most out of a bad choice & bad situation."
    Chris was great from the start! I made a bad judgement call to get myself into the position I was in, and I needed help to rectify the situation & move forward. I am completely inexperienced when it comes to the law & proceedings. Chris was professional, supportive, and just - HANDLED everything. I appreciate all of his expert help making the most out of a bad choice & bad situation. There is so much additional sleep I could have lost at night if I didn’t trust Chris to guide me in the decision making and achieve the best possible outcome. I highly recommend Chris!
