Understanding the elements of robbery if you are accused

When you are charged with a crime, you are not automatically considered guilty of that accusation. Our court system is set up to be as fair as possible to all, though obviously nothing is perfect. The fallibility of people and human-made systems is why it's so important that you don't trust completely in the system and ensure you have an experienced professional on your side.

Armed robbery charge: Cowboy bandits awaiting sentencing

When a crime is commissioned with the aid of a weapon anywhere in the United States, including in Oregon, the potential penalties upon conviction can be severe.

The fact that one of the men had a partially amputated ring finger apparently led to his arrest on an armed robbery charge.

Whenever an Oregon resident faces federal charges, he or she will likely know that the seriousness of the situation cannot be underestimated. The adverse consequences in the event of a conviction on a charge, such as a federal theft charge, can be life-changing. For this reason, it makes sense to retain the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the federal court system.

The effect of expunging a crime from your records

Some people may not be aware of this, but you can actually scrub a crime from your records, allowing you to move forward with your life without the weight of that crime holding you back. It's called "expungement," and it is a court-ordered process that "seals" your criminal conviction from view by most organizations and people.
