Strong Armed Robbery in Mississippi?

Asked about 1 year ago - Greenwood, MS

Will be charged as an adult. Was already on probation and violated probation by committing this crime. Over $100 was stolen so that makes it a felony. What is the minimum/maximum sentence for this? Could he possibly get probation again? What would be a possible plea bargain?

    Answered . In Mississippi, robbery without the use of a deadly weapon carries up to 15 years. If a deadly weapon (knife, gun, etc.) the minimum sentence is 3 years up to a maximum of life (if set by the jury). The amount stolen doesn't matter. If he were to plead guilty or be found guilty, his probation would be revoked by operation of law and he would most likely have to serve out his original suspended sentence (but it can be modified by the judge). It would be very unlikely to get probation for a charge like this without already being on probation; thus, I would not count on such an offer in this case. Please consult a criminal defense attorney immediately because it is a serious charge.

    Answered . You have some serious charges and face a lot of consequences on both the new case and the probation case. Go interview and retain a good lawyer to fight the charges and possibly work out a good disposition of the case.

    Answered . I practice criminal law in VA not MS, but all of the questions you have asked are good and relevant questions that anyone anywhere charged with this offense, or a family member of someone facing these charges, would ask. However, to properly answer your questions requires a close examination of the facts of his case, as well as other aggravating/mitigating factors, prior record, and a host of other things.

    He needs to sit with a local criminal defense attorney who can analyze his case and offer advice on how to proceed and what to expect.
