With over 25 years of experience in criminal defense, our attorneys understand how to navigate the complexities of the Code of Alabama (1975) § 13A-8-42. We are dedicated to providing robust defense strategies tailored to each client’s unique circumstances.

  • The defendant knowingly obtains unauthorized control over another’s property.
  • The defendant intends to deprive the owner of his property.
  • The defendant uses or threatens immediate physical force upon another person with the intent to overcome his physical resistance or physical power of resistance to the taking of the property or to the retention thereof immediately after the taking.
  • Another person helps in the robbery by threatening or harming the victim.

Robbery in the Second Degree is a Class B felony, with very serious consequences for the accused if convicted. A conviction under this statute could lead to a long prison sentence and hefty fines and court costs. Do not wait to find an attorney until your trial comes. You need protection at every step of the process. Hire The Stoves Law Firm today to ensure you have the best possible defense for you and your rights.

What are the Best Defenses to Robbery Cases?

  • Alibi Defense: This defense is used if it can be proven that the defendant was somewhere else entirely at the time that the robbery was committed. This can be proven by security camera footage, testimony from someone the accused was with at the time, or receipts from restaurants or stores around the same time. This introduces reasonable doubt and can easily prevent a conviction.
  • Mistaken Identity: This defense argues that the accused was simply not the person who actually committed the crime. Eye witnesses are often inconsistent in their testimony as the length of time between the date of the incident and the date of trial can be months long. A skilled defense attorney can cast doubt on such evidence and testimony in order to bring about an acquittal.
  • Insufficient Evidence: This defense argues that the prosecution has failed to provide enough evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the crime. If the prosecution fails to prove their case to such a high level, the case could end in an acquittal.
