Robbery offences

At Janes Solicitors we specialise in providing expert legal defence for individuals facing robbery offences or conspiracy to commit robbery.

Penalties for robbery are severe, with the maximum sentence being life imprisonment. It is crucial to have a knowledgeable and experienced legal team on your side to protect your rights and provide a strong defence.

There are separate sentencing guidelines for professionally planned commercial robbery, street and less sophisticated commercial robbery, and robbery in a dwelling.

Many factors will be taken into consideration by the Court, such as the extent of force employed; whether weapons were used; whether a vulnerable person was involved; whether disguises were worn; and the value of the items stolen. Other factors can be argued by the defence to lessen the penalties, such as if the robbery was an opportunistic act, or if the defendant had only a small part to play in the robbery.

Defending robbery cases requires highly skilled criminal defence forensic experts, as there is often a great deal of evidence to be considered. Janes Solicitors have built an excellent network of experts, including in the fields of DNA and fingerprint evidence, CCTV evidence, firearms, and phone evidence including cell siting. Our lawyers are renowned for their meticulous approach in producing a robust defence strategy. We painstakingly dissect every detail of the case to ensure we secure the best outcome possible for our clients.

Notable cases

R v Ferry (Isleworth Crown Court)

Son of the rock star Bryan Ferry and renowned political campaigner in his own right, our client was charged with perverting the course of justice arising out of criminal proceedings for an offence of robbery. Following negotiations with the Crown Prosecution Service all proceedings in respect of the perverting charge were dropped and the Crown accepted a guilty plea to a minor, affray-related offence. Set against the backdrop of the fox-hunting debate, the case was highly politicised and attracted widespread national publicity.
