A Robbery conviction in Phoenix can change your life forever!

by Aaron M. Black • October 07, 2016
Robbery incarcerationDid you know that there are three different types of robbery classifications in Phoenix? The classifications are Robbery (ARS § 13-902) which is considered a class four felony, Aggravated Robbery (ARS § 13-903) which is considered a class three felony and Armed Robbery (ARS § 13-904) which harbors the most serious classification and is elevated to a felony two classification. Armed robbery can carry a conviction of up to 35 years in prison.

Felony offenses are the most serious criminal charges as they are more severe than misdemeanors and carry much harsher punishments. Even if you have been sentenced to probation on a felony offense a judge can still sentence you up to a year in county jail. County jail in Phoenix is the infamous Tent City where you must endure the sweltering heat and meatless meals. If of course you have prior felony convictions then prison becomes mandatory.
