Robbery is a crime involving the use of violence, threats, or forces to take property from another person’s possession. Armed robbery or burglaries are especially serious crimes, particularly when an injury occurs during the commission of the crime. The most important job of armed robbery lawyers is to defend their clients to get their sentences reduced. This job is especially important for those types of burglary that carry stiff penalties and may even include the death penalty.
Carjacking is the theft of an automobile through force or intimidation. In 1992, Congress passed the first Federal Anti-Car Theft Act which made it a federal crime to use a firearm during the robbery of a car.
