What is Armed Robbery?

Armed robbery is a serious criminal offense in Colorado and the United States. It involves using force, intimidation, or the threat of violence to take someone's property while possessing a deadly weapon. In Colorado, this crime is treated with utmost seriousness, and the penalties for a conviction can be severe.

Armed robbery typically includes the following elements:

  • Taking of Property: The accused must take or attempt to take someone else's property, including money or valuable items, without their consent.
  • Use of Force or Threats: Armed robbery involves the use of force or intimidation, often including the use or threat of a deadly weapon.
  • Presence of a Deadly Weapon: To be considered armed robbery, the accused must possess a deadly weapon during the commission of the crime.

It's important to note that the term "deadly weapon" is broadly defined in Colorado law and can include firearms, knives, or any object capable of causing serious harm.

What are the Penalties for Armed Robbery in Colorado?

Colorado law classifies armed robbery as a Class 3 felony, carrying severe penalties for those convicted. The specific consequences of an armed robbery conviction can differ based on various factors, including the presence of aggravating circumstances, such as injuries or the use of a firearm.

Common penalties for armed robbery may include:

  • Prison Time: Conviction for armed robbery can result in a lengthy prison sentence. A Class 3 felony can lead to a sentence of 4 to 16 years, with the potential for an extended prison term in the presence of aggravating factors.
  • Fines: Those found guilty of armed robbery may face substantial fines, which can range from thousands to tens of thousands of dollars.
  • Restitution: Offenders may be required to provide restitution to the victims to cover any losses or damages resulting from the robbery.
  • Probation: In some cases, the court may impose probation, involving strict conditions and supervision, in place of or in addition to a prison sentence.
  • Impact on Future Opportunities: A criminal record for armed robbery can have a long-lasting impact on your future, affecting employment, housing, and other aspects of your life.

Defenses Against Armed Robbery Charges

Some potential defenses against armed robbery charges may include:

  • Lack of Intent: If the accused did not have the intent to commit armed robbery, this can be a valid defense. We can demonstrate that the alleged actions were not premeditated or intended as a criminal act.
  • Mistaken Identity: We can investigate and present evidence to show that the prosecution has wrongly identified the accused as the perpetrator of the armed robbery.
  • Inadequate Evidence: We can challenge the evidence against you, arguing that it is insufficient to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • Coercion or Duress: If the accused committed the robbery under threats or coercion, this can be a valid defense. We can work to show that the actions were not voluntary.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If evidence was received illegally or without a proper search warrant, it may be excluded from the case.
