Aggravated Robbery Attorney
Aggravated Robbery Charges
In order to convict a defendant of aggravated robbery, the Arizona prosecution bears the proof beyond a reasonable doubt that:
- It was you that committed the robbery; and
- You were helped by another person who was present at the time.
Knowledge of the other person does not need to be clearly apparent to the victim. Thus a person in a car waiting to drive the defendant after the crime may be enough under the Arizona Aggravated Robbery laws.
