Robbery involves the taking, or attempted taking, an item of value from a person by use of force, threat of force, violence and/or fear. Robbery is a strike offense and carries a presumptive state prison sentence if convicted. Many times robbery may be associated with additional violent crimes such as murder, drug crimes, kidnapping and/or carjacking. If you or someone you know is under investigation for or has been charged with robbery, contact RAAB | MAHONEY immediately.

Carjacking involves the hijacking of a motor vehicle while it is still occupied, and is an automatic felony offense which carries a possible sentence of 3, 6, or 9 years imprisonment. Carjacking is a violent offense and qualifies as a strike under California’s Three Strikes Law. A conviction for carjacking usually results in a state prison commitment, even for a first-time offender.
If you or a loved one is under investigation, accused, or have been arrested for carjacking, please contact RAAB | MAHONEY immediately.
