Chattanooga Robbery Defense Lawyer
Have You Been Charged with Robbery?
The state of Tennessee defines robbery as the theft of property through the use of force or fear. Robbery is a very serious crime that carries very serious penalties upon conviction. If you have been arrested for or charged with robbery, you will need an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney to fight for you.
What Is the Penalty for Robbery in Tennessee?
Robbery is a Class B felony in Tennessee. If you are convicted of robbery, you could face between eight and thirty-three years in prison and up to $50,000 in fines. Even if you have no prior convictions, you could still face the maximum penalty. If you have prior convictions, you could face an even harsher penalty.
Because robbery is a felony, you will also face additional consequences if you are convicted. For example, you may have to forfeit any property used in the commission of the robbery, and you may have to pay restitution to the victim. You may also face difficulties finding employment, rental housing, or a loan due to your robbery charge.
If you are facing robbery charges, you need an experienced attorney to help protect your rights while fighting for your best interests. As a former prosecutor, Attorney Meredith Mochel has significant experience with the inner workings of the legal system and can use that knowledge to help you obtain a favorable outcome in your case.
How Can an Attorney Help with My Robbery Case?
An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you in a number of ways. For example, your attorney can help you by gathering evidence that can help your case. For example, if you were recorded on a store's surveillance camera, your attorney may be able to obtain that recording and use it in your defense.
Your attorney may also be able to help you by negotiating with the prosecution to help reduce the charges against you or obtain a more lenient sentence. Additionally, your attorney can help you by obtaining records that may be relevant to your case.
