Louisiana Robbery Defense Attorney
Robbery Attorney in Shreveport, Bossier City, Monroe, & Ruston, LA
A person who uses a weapon to commit robbery faces armed robbery charges, and can expect extended prison terms if convicted. A sentence of 10 to 99 years in prison is possible. During this time the offender will not have the benefit of parole or sentence suspension. Anything that can be considered “dangerous” and carries the potential to execute serious bodily harm or death counts as a weapon; thus, weapons are not limited to firearms and knives. If the weapon of choice was a firearm, the prison term can be extended another five years.
Failed armed robberies can lead to attempted armed robbery charges. If convicted, offenders can also expect lengthy prison terms.
