Robbery – which involves using threats or violence to steal something – is one of the most serious offences you can be accused of in England and Wales. If convicted you potentially face up to life in jail, as well as suffering immeasurable damage to your reputation and family life.
Even convictions for ‘lesser’ offences such as burglary (breaking into a home or business to steal), theft from an individual, or shoplifting can result in a jail sentence, for which you could lose your job and experience devastating effects on those closest to you.
If you are suspected of stealing something, it is crucial to get expert legal advice as soon as possible.
