Spokane Robbery Attorneys

Aggressive Representation from Experienced Professionals

Robbery, burglary, and theft are terms that have important legal distinctions. They all involve violating another person’s property, but only robbery is classified as a violent crime by the FBI.

Robbery in Washington State is defined as taking another’s personal property “by the use or threatened use of immediate force, violence, or fear of injury.” This differs from burglary, which involves entering or remaining unlawfully in a building; and from theft, which is to “wrongfully obtain or exert unauthorized control over the property or services” of another person, but lacks the component of force.

If you have been charged with robbery, Twyford Law Office can help. Our Spokane robbery attorneys are ready to fight for your rights and work around the clock to help you obtain a positive resolution to your case.

Robbery Statistics in Washington

Washington had 5,651 robberies in 2016, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Statistics, which is in line with recent years. Less than 200 took place outside metropolitan areas, so robbery is primarily a big-city crime here.

There are two degrees of robbery, according to the Washington criminal code.

First-degree robbery results when one of the following conditions are met:

  • The perpetrator is armed with a deadly weapon, displays a firearm, or inflicts bodily injury
  • The robbery is within or against a financial institution.

First-degree robbery is a Class A felony, the most serious of crimes in Washington State. Life in prison is the maximum sentence.

Second-degree robbery covers all other instances, the critical factor again being the use or threatened use of force. It is a Class B felony, with maximum punishments of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

Robbery – either first- or second-degree – is one of the offenses applied to Washington’s persistent offender law, popularly known as the “Three Strikes” law. A person convicted three times of specific serious crimes is automatically sentenced to life in prison with no promise of parole.
