Armed robbery is a serious crime that poses very harsh penalties. As a felony in Arizona, armed robbery is characterized by the use of a weapon during the commission of a robbery. Although cases can vary, armed robbery often involves the use of force - and sometimes injuries to victims. It may also take place in retain establishments, banks, stores, muggings, or home invasions.

As the use of a weapon in any crime often results in enhanced penalties and sentences, armed robbery poses serious penalties for convicted individuals. When firearms are involved, severe enhancements may be pursued:

  • The use of a gun during a robbery can result in an additional 10 years added to a sentence.
  • Firing a gun during a robbery can result in an additional 20 years added to a sentence.

In any case, large fines, long terms of imprisonment, and felony probation / parole are common consequences. However, there are many issues at hand that can affect not only penalties, but also defense strategies, such as drug or alcohol addiction, the age of an accused individual, mental health, and whether victims suffered injuries.
