Robbery Charges in Michigan
Robbery is the taking of property or money that belongs to someone else with force, fear, or violence. The maximum penalty for unarmed robbery is 15 years in prison and up to life for armed robbery. Robbery offenses can occur in many ways. One of the more common ways is when a person committing a retail fraud, fights with store security. So, a relatively minor retail fraud misdemeanor can be turned into a 15-year felony. Prosecutors in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties look for any opportunity to charge a person with a felony and even experienced defense attorneys are rarely qualified to handle these cases.
Armed Robbery is similar to “regular” robbery except there is the possession of a dangerous weapon, an item that a person believes to be a dangerous weapon, or the alleged defendant represented that he had a dangerous weapon.
