What is the maximum sentence for Attempted Robbery-2nd D Felony & Attempted Robbery-3rd E Felony?

Asked almost 3 years ago - Bronx, NY

He has served 16 months already, and every time he goes to court, his case is always remanded. What can happen?

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . The maximum sentence for attempted robbery in the second degree is seven years, and the maximum on attempted robbery in the third degree is four years if this is a first offense (that is not to say that this is what the sentence would be).

    The fact that he is still going back to court indicates that his case is not completed yet and that he has not been sentenced yet. He will, however, be getting jail time credit for the time he is serving towards whatever his ultimate sentence would be. The reason he keeps getting remanded is probably because he didn't post bail.

  3. Answered . Has he pled guilty already? If he has pled guilty, he may be remanded until sentence. The delay could be due to the Department of Correction not concluding their pre-sentence investigation in the time allotted by the judge. It's also possible that the remand is related to some other case that the accused had pending.

    The maximum punishment for a D felony is 7 years, and the maximum punishment on an E felony is 4 years jail.
