Aggravated robbery charges are filed when a person is accused of using a deadly weapon to forcefully take something of value from someone else.
In general, aggravated robbery charges in Colorado are filed as Class 3 felonies, and they will require mandatory enhanced sentencing upon conviction due to the fact that this offense is classified as a violent crime.
What this ends up meaning for people accused of this crime is that these people:
- Can face up to up to 32 years in prison, as well as hefty fines and other penalties, upon conviction
- Will need to have a strong defense in order to minimize the possibility of conviction and the associated severe penalties
- Can trust their defense to the skilled Colorado Springs aggravated robbery lawyers at The Kohn Law Firm

Aggravated Robbery Defense Strategies
When it comes to defending people against criminal charges, the best defense strategies will depend on the specifics of the case, as well as the circumstances of the arrest and an individual’s criminal record. In general, however, the following may be effective defense arguments in aggravated robbery cases:
- The victim has wrongly identified the accused individual, mistaking him or her as the perpetrator of the offense.
- Witnesses to the incident have wrongly identified the accused individual.
- There is reasonable doubt regarding whether the accused person actually committed the offense in question.
- An alleged confession was obtained illegally or through the use of coercion.
- No deadly weapon was used in the alleged offense.
There may be other effective defense strategies and arguments in these cases, so it’s always advised to consult with an experienced defense attorney to develop the strongest possible defense against aggravated robbery charges.
