Our Mission: ”To empower, educate, and defend those charged with criminal offenses in Wisconsin and achieve the best possible outcome for their case.”Tracey Wood

Madison, WI Robbery Lawyer

In The News

Stealing seems like a simple crime, but it is more complicated than it looks. There are three basic types of crimes related to stealing – theft, robbery, and burglary – and multiple levels of severity within those three types in Wisconsin.

When you take property from someone in person using force or by threatening to use force, you could face robbery charges. Robbery is considered a Class E felony and is punishable by up to $50,000 in fines and up to 15 years in prison. If a gun or other deadly weapon was used during the robbery, the charges increase to $100,000 in fines and up to 40 years in prison.

Defending Against Robbery Charges

Because the crime of stealing is complex, defending robbery charges requires a skilled defense. Your lawyer should thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case to look for opportunities to prove you did not commit robbery. Defense strategies against robbery charges might include:

  • Using an alibi to prove your innocence.
  • Proving you were forced to commit robbery by someone else.
  • Showing the accusations are wrongful or a witness misidentified you.
  • Arguing that there’s a lack of evidence or that evidence was mishandled.
  • Arguing a true lack of knowledge—that the accused was not aware of the behavior of others who were committing a crime
