Two Robberies, One Small Town in Texas

Robbery | Theft Crimes

Robberies happen all the time. Even though the basic facts of any two robberies may seem similar, how they are ultimately charged can be quite different.

In October, a robbery of a bank in Lubbock and the robbery of an armored truck in the same town are two such crimes. On the surface, each may look as though they are similar but at the end of the day, those responsible can face different charges based on the facts of the case.

Robbery is one thing, but aggravated robbery is another legal beast entirely. What are the differences between the two and what penalties can result? Read on to find out.

Using Deadly Force In Defense Of Another Is Not A Crime in Texas

Criminal Defense | Robbery

Recently in Irving, Texas, a man allegedly entered a check cashing establishment in an attempted robbery. Instead of simply robbing the place, the man allegedly took a female employee hostage and held her at gunpoint. Dramatic video shows the police in a standoff with the suspect who appears to be holding a woman with his arm wrapped around her neck. The video, captured by a man who used his cell phone to film the incident, shows the suspect turn to his left. When he turns, he keeps the hostage in front of him. Turning was the fatal mistake.
