Robbery/Burglary

Talk To Defense Lawyers Who Know What's At Stake

Most of our clients – adults, juveniles, college students, tourists and others – have never been arrested. They have no criminal record. Yet now they are facing serious charges that may affect their families, their ability to obtain an education, their freedom and their futures. They are scared, worried about the charges becoming public and uncertain how to protect themselves against the overwhelming power of the criminal justice system.

Our Approach To A Strong Burglary Defense

Burglary is a crime of intent. It is also considered a felony in the Florida criminal justice system, far more serious than simply breaking and entering or simple theft. This means that your state of mind plays an important role in a criminal defense matter. We may ask questions as we pursue your defense such as:

  • Did you know the building or the premises in question was private?
  • Were you invited as a guest into the premises where you were arrested?
  • Are there extenuating circumstances surrounding your arrest?
  • Is there more to the arrest record than the police are including in the police report?

We Take An Aggressive Approach To Robbery Charges

Robbery involves using force to take money or property from someone else. For the crime to be charged as robbery, force must be involved. Robbery, like burglary, is a felony that is subject to what is known as a "gun penalty enhancement." This means that if you are convicted, you will be facing increased penalties as well as the possible loss of your gun rights and other civil liberties.

If you're facing robbery charges, you need to have an aggressive defense strategy on your side right out of the gate. Individuals facing violent crimes such as robbery are up against a prosecutor that has an endless supply of resources to build their case against you.

At the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey, we will put 20 years of legal experience at your disposal. We will help you understand your rights, options and best course of action to ensure the best possible result.

Know Your Rights. Know Your Options.

In all cases, we will use our skills to fight for you at trial or to negotiate a reasonable resolution to your case. Among the cases that we handle are:

  • Robbery, including armed robbery
  • Strong armed robbery, also known as mugging
  • Home invasions, breaking and entering into a neighbor's home
  • Burglary, including burglary of abandoned homes, businesses and occupied dwellings
  • Car theft
  • Theft
  • Robbery and burglary crimes committed by a juvenile

Depending on the charges against you, penalties could include mandatory minimum sentencing with the possibility of life in prison. These are not consequences that should be taken lightly. They demand intelligent, direct and immediate attention only a seasoned criminal defense attorney can provide.
