Facing robbery charges, whether for attempted robbery, aggravated robbery, or armed robbery, can be a daunting experience. Penalties for these offenses in Massachusetts are particularly harsh. Unarmed robbery can lead to a life sentence or a prison term of any number of years. For a second conviction, there’s a mandatory minimum sentence of two years (G.L. c. 265, §19). If you’re facing armed robbery charges, the mandatory minimum prison sentence for a first offense, if the offender is masked or disguised, is five years (G.L. c. 265, §17).
The attorneys at Coughlin Law group can mount a vigorous defense on your behalf through understanding the intricacies of robbery cases. Despite the serious nature of robbery charges, proving them can often be challenging for the prosecution. Security camera footage from businesses such as liquor stores, restaurants, and convenience stores is often of poor quality, making positive identification difficult. Consequently, the prosecution’s case may hinge solely on eye-witness testimony or circumstantial evidence.
Through comprehensive discovery, we’ll uncover the evidence that the prosecution has against you. Once retained as your counsel, we’ll help you understand your charges, explore your options, negotiate with the prosecution, and, if necessary, defend your rights aggressively at trial.
