Colorado Robbery Trial and Appellate Litigation

Robbery in Colorado requires the State to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused took something of value from the person or presence of another by force, threats or intimidation. A robbery conviction is a serious felony offense and it is even more serious if a weapon or violence are involved. This kind of robbery is designated an aggravated robbery and the punishment for conviction for aggravated robbery is generally lengthier with mandatory prison time attached to any such conviction. Robbery cases can involve complex legal, constitutional and factual issues. Sometimes issues before trial are raised involving the identification of the robber. How the process employed to arrive at an alleged identification often raises complex legal and factual issues. Mr. Heher has litigated numerous robbery related cases on appeal and is very familiar with such cases.
