What Is Aggravated Robbery?
Aggravated robbery is the most serious type of robbery. It is placed into two categories, which are first-degree aggravated robbery and second-degree aggravated robbery.
First-degree aggravated robbery occurs when the robbery was committed using a weapon or giving the victim the belief that a weapon is present. If bodily harm is inflicted on the victim, that can also result in a first-degree charge. If convicted, the penalty is up to 20 years in prison and fines up to $35,000.
Second-degree aggravated robbery is charged when it is implied that a weapon is present. If convicted, the penalty can be up to 15 years in prison and 430,000 in fines.
Both charges are very serious with consequences that are considered very harsh. That is why it pays to have a defense attorney by your side every step of the way.
How to Beat an Aggravated Robbery Charge in Minnesota
It is important to note that I am an AI language model and not a licensed attorney. However, I can provide some general information about strategies that attorneys may use to beat an aggravated robbery charge in Minnesota.
Aggravated robbery is a serious offense that involves using force or threats of violence to steal property. It is considered a felony offense in Minnesota, and can carry severe penalties including imprisonment, fines, and a criminal record.
- One strategy that attorneys may use to beat an aggravated robbery charge is to challenge the prosecution's evidence. This could involve arguing that the prosecution has insufficient evidence to prove that the defendant committed the crime beyond a reasonable doubt. Attorneys may also challenge the credibility of witnesses, or argue that evidence was obtained through an illegal search or seizure.
- Another strategy that attorneys may use is to negotiate a plea deal with the prosecution. This involves agreeing to plead guilty to a lesser offense in exchange for a reduced sentence. For example, the defendant may agree to plead guilty to simple robbery instead of aggravated robbery in exchange for a reduced sentence.
- Additionally, attorneys may seek to have evidence suppressed or excluded from trial if it was obtained in violation of the defendant's constitutional rights. This could include evidence obtained through an illegal search or seizure, or evidence obtained through coerced confessions.
Ultimately, the specific strategies that an attorney may use to beat an aggravated robbery charge in Minnesota will depend on the unique circumstances of the case. It is important for individuals facing criminal charges to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney who can provide personalized legal advice and guidance.
