Re: agravated robbery

The answer to your question is not a simple one. The result may depend on the particular facts of the case, any prior record that you may have and the defenses that you may be able to present.

You are charged with a very serious felony and a conviction can carry with it lengthy jail sentences, and fines. Moreover, the conviction can follow though to your adult record in some circumstances resulting in significant collateral consequences such as making it difficult to pass background checks for finding employment or renting an apartment.

With so much at stake, you would be wise to retain aggressive cunsel for your representation.
