Robbery Defense Attorneys in Baltimore

Have you been charged with robbery? If so, then I invite you to contact my firm immediately. Robbery is different from other theft crimes because it assumes the suspect was, or potentially was violent. This means that those accused face aggressive strategies from prosecutors and harsh penalties if a conviction is reached. However, Scheuerman Law, LLC can provide the dedicated and assertive defense to counter these allegations and ensure that your rights are protected and your side of the story is emphatically put forth.

Maryland's Robbery Laws
Robbery is defined by committing theft of another person by use of violence or "putting in fear" (threatening the victim). These offenses are described and organized into two categories in Maryland Code § 3-402 and § 3-403.
- Robbery. Maryland Code § 3-402 prohibits committing or attempted to commit a robbery. It is a felony that can result in a prison sentence of up to 15 years.
- Robbery with a dangerous weapon. Often called "armed robbery." Using a weapon during the crime of robbery—or presenting a written note claiming that you are carrying a dangerous weapon—is a felony. It is punishable up to 20 years in prison.
It is important to keep in mind that these penalties are just the maximum allowable penalties provided by the law. It takes skilled, thorough defense, however, to mount an effective effort against the state's case against you and ensure a reduction or a dismissal. That is exactly the kind of defense our legal team is prepared to develop and present on behalf of our clients. Selecting our firm for representation means that you can rest assured that every possible defense avenue is pursued to its fullest extent.
