What are the Best Defenses to Robbery Cases?

At The Stoves Law Firm, P.C., we are dedicated to challenging the prosecution’s case against you. While it is important to note that every case is unique and should be treated as such, here are some common defenses we may employ:

  • Lack of Evidence: The prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the crime. If evidence is lacking or unreliable, the case may be dismissed.
  • Mistaken Identity: Sometimes, a victim or witness may misidentify the perpetrator, especially if the crime happened quickly or under stressful conditions. Eye witnesses are often confused about what they actually saw in the moment, or will give testimony that is inconsistent with prior statements. Our skilled attorneys can challenge the validity of the identification.
  • Coercion or Duress: If the defendant committed the crime under coercion or duress, meaning they felt threatened with harm if they did not commit the crime, this can serve as a defense.

The Stoves Law Firm, with over 25 years of experience in criminal defense, knows the high bar that the prosecution must reach in order to convict. We know what it takes to prevent the prosecution from reaching that high bar and will fight tooth and nail to protect your rights in this stressful process.
