I am not on probation. I have good grades in college and work. I played a lesser role. They confiscated a BB gun from my home. First time being charged with a serious crime.
The fact that you played any role is bad... Feel free to call me to go over your offer and so I can give you a free consultation.
You need an attorney to deal with this. A 211 PC is a very serious charge . An attorney , after reviewing the discovery, might be able to negotiate a plea to a different charge.
Yes, but don't mess around. Get an attorney ASAP. If you would like to talk about your case and would like a free consultation call (310) 557-1700.

Because robbery (PC 211) is a strike offense, there is a presumption that you go to state prison if convicted. That presumption can be overcome and end up with a probation sentence. That can carry anything from no time in custody up to a year in county jail.
Before getting too wrapped up in possible sentences, you need to have an in-depth discussion with your attorney about the facts of the case, any possible defenses or other ways to get the very best outcome - whatever that may be. That could be a dismissal of charges, a not guilty verdict or a plea deal that keeps you out of custody and/or to a different charge if possible.
You've got some positive things going for you - work, school, no prior record - but the charge you face, even as a minor participant, is serious.
If you have an attorney already, you need to be discussing this with them. If you don't, you need one.
