Criminal Defense Services in Cobb County, Douglas County & the Atlanta Metro Area

More than taking some property which belongs to another person, robbery includes taking something by force.

Take the first step in defending your future by reaching out to our highly-qualified Paulding County criminal defense attorneys for help.

With more than 75 years of combined legal experience behind us, Henrickson & Sereebutra has all the tool necessary to build an effective defense against criminal charges. We make our client’s well-being our top priority when crafting a legal defense to whatever our clients have been charged with. With a former prosecutor on your side, together we can undermine the prosecution’s case against you and ensure your freedom.

How does Georgia define robbery?

Basic robbery charges are more serious than the average theft crime because they are done in the presence of the proper owner.

The prosecution will attempt to prove you robbed someone else by means of:

  • Using force
  • Using intimidation, threats, or coercion
  • Suddenly grabbing the property in question

A robbery conviction can result in at least one year in prison, and if the victim was older than 65, you could serve five years or more. If a weapon was involved in the robbery, the penalty can increase to 10 to 20 years in prison.
