What is Robbery? The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 200 covers the crime of Robbery in full detail. As a basic charge, Robbery is unlawfully taking personal property from someone against his or her will. The definition of Robbery also applies if you used force or frightened someone and took property from them, prevented someone from stopping you, or helped someone escape with property stolen from someone else.
In Nevada, Robbery is a serious crime. It is listed as a Category B felony, with minimum prison time and fines, serving anywhere from 2 to 15 years. If your Robbery charge runs alongside another conviction, you may be hit with concurrent sentences, which would make you serve out the longest term for the most serious crime. A judge may also sentence you to serve out the full term of two or more sentences for multiple crimes. A judge’s decision such as this may have serious consequences for your term behind bars as well as your future after incarceration, so you should reach out for my legal advice as soon as possible.
If you are charged with the crime of armed Robbery, the sentence could potentially double.

You don’t want yourself or a family member or friend to spend a significant portion of his or her life in prison. No matter the harshness of the crime, I may be able to help reduce the portion of time behind bars.
It is possible you have been wrongly charged with Robbery. The police do sometimes make errors in arrests. Your case could be one of mistaken identity or you may have been forced into the crime of Robbery under duress. Mitigating circumstances could apply to your case, and if so I can help you get a fair hearing, clear your name, or even get the punishment for your involvement reduced to fit your level of participation in the crime—if you had any involvement.
