Conviction for Burglary or Robbery Can Change Your Life
Robbery is a serious crime made even more serious by the fact that it is a "strike" crime. In other words, if you are convicted of three "strike" crimes in your lifetime, you will face life in prison. A person who steals an iPod from another at a bus stop may face robbery charges. Do not take your chances with what may appear to be a relatively harmless offense. Consult an experienced Seattle criminal defense attorney to protect your rights.
Burglary charges are also very serious. If a young person steals a skateboard after breaking and entering another person's house, he or she may be charged with burglary. Although this may have merely been a youthful lapse in judgment, it can still be treated harshly in juvenile court.
If convicted of felony burglary, a young person will have a felony record that can haunt him or her for the rest of his or her life, and will likely foreclose many future opportunities.
