Robbery Charges

While the second amendment of the Constitution does give you the right to bear arms, it does not give you the right to use those weapons while committing any crime in Wisconsin, and there are restrictions on who can possess a gun.

In Wisconsin, robbery is defined as the act of depriving someone of their property while in their presence by the use of:

  • Force,
  • Intimidation,
  • And/or fear

Penalties for Armed Robbery

If during a robbery you used a weapon such as a gun or knife, the penalty for this crime could be increased substantially. A penalty enhancer could be filed by the government that would increase the potential time that you could spend in prison upon conviction.

In Wisconsin, a theft or armed robbery charge could have extremely severe penalties such as:

  • A long prison sentence
  • Extended supervision
  • Probation
  • Restitution to the victim(s)
  • Large fines

What to Do After You're Arrested

There are a couple of things you can do to help yourself in a theft, robbery, or weapon crime in Wisconsin. The main thing to remember is not to answer any questions asked by the police and/or prosecutor.
