Harris County Robbery Defense Attorney
Robbery itself is a serious felony that occurs when you injure someone or threaten to injure or kill someone while in the course of committing theft (Texas Penal Code §29.02). If convicted of robbery, you face 2 to 20 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
Aggravated robbery is more serious and the penalties more severe. If convicted of aggravated robbery, you face 5 to 99 years or life in prison and a fine up to $10,000 (Texas Penal Code §29.03).
Robbery cases are complex and the penalties are severe. It is important to retain a Houston criminal lawyer with the experience in defending these cases. Attorney James Sullivan has fought aggravated robbery cases at trial and has also been successful in persuading prosecutors to dismiss robbery cases. Sullivan also has experience in getting several such cases no billed (dismissed) by the grand jury. These no billed cases are eligible for immediate expunction. Of course, each case is different and the results depend on the unique facts and circumstances of each case.
