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 possession of a dangerous weapon or item that a person believes to be a dangerous weapon or the alleged defendant represented that he was in possession of a dangerous weapon.
