Tempe Robbery Defense Attorneys
Working Tirelessly to Protect Your Rights
Under Arizona law, robbery is a violent crime in which the accused tried to take possession of property that belong to someone else through the use of force, violence, or fear. Aggravated robbery occurs when the accused also has an accomplice during the robbery. Armed robbery occurs during a standard robbery in which the accused is either armed with a deadly weapon, simulated deadly weapon, or when the accused actually uses or threatens to use a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument.
