Robbery Crimes Defense
There are three felony classifications of robbery under Colorado law. Robbery in Colorado is generally charged when someone knowingly takes anything of value directly from another person or in the presence of another by the use of force, threats, or intimidation. The severity of the charge depends on whether you used or threatened to use a deadly weapon, and whether the object of the robbery was the unlawful taking of controlled substances.
If there is no deadly weapon involved and the object of the robbery was not controlled substances, a defendant will typically be charged with simple robbery. Simple robbery is a class 4 felony that carries up to 6 years in prison and up to a $500,000 fine. However, if the alleged victim is disabled, or someone over the age 70, also known as an “at-risk” elder, Colorado law imposes a mandatory minimum prison sentence of at least 4 years.
Aggravated robbery occurs when a person commits robbery with the use or threatened use of a deadly weapon. The penalties for aggravated robbery are severe and carry a mandatory prison sentence up to 32 years and up to a $750,000 fine. If controlled substances are involved, Colorado law imposes a mandatory prison sentence up to 48 years.
