Robbery is a hybrid offence containing elements of larceny and assault.
There must be an unlawful taking and carrying away of property with the intention of permanently depriving the owner or person in lawful possession thereof. The property must be taken without the consent of the owner, and “consent” obtained by force or by threat (putting that person in fear of violence) is no consent.
WHAT IS YOUR NEXT STEP ONCE YOU HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH THE OFFENCE?
If you have been charged with a robbery offence, you will be taken to the local police station and questioned.
You will be provided with a Court Attendance Notice to which you must comply. At this stage, you should consult Brydens Lawyers so you may be able to obtain legal advice as soon as possible.

ABLE TO APPEAL?
