Santa Ana Robbery Lawyer

In the City of Santa Ana, robberies occur regularly. However, there are many defenses available for Orange County criminal defense attorney Lauren K. Johnson to present on behalf of someone charged with this offense.

The charge of robbery contains the element of force, or threat of force--which could require the proving of either a“requisite force,” or a “requisite fear.” Santa Ana robbery defense attorney Lauren K. Johnson often explains how the force required for robbery must be more than an incidental touching to take property. For example, the force employed by a pickpocket would be insufficient to constitute a robbery, although it could be considered a different kind of theft crime. The “requisite force” must generally be strong enough to prevent a person from resisting the theft. If the prosecution is claiming the alleged victim was in fear, and cannot prove the victim had the “requisite fear” to actually be afraid, then the crime of robbery would not have been committed unless other circumstantial evidence satisfied the element of fear.

The Johnson Criminal Law Group often uses a number of other defenses for robbery, depending upon the situations and circumstances surrounding the case. Some of the most common defenses might include the fact that there was no actual taking, or that you didn’t intent to take the properly. It could be that you rightfully believed the property belonged to you or there was a mistaken identity or a false accusation. In other situations, your state of mind might come into play, or that you had authorization from the owner.

Lauren Johnson was amazing. She explained everything in ways that were easily understood, & answered all of my question. She was respectful, but also open & honest. She started work on my case the first day we met & got results quickly. She demonstrated passion, concern, and showed true feeling for my situation. My expectations were greatly exceeded. I would say she has an incredible attention for detail, & has a real dedication to her work. Lauren Johnson would be my first recommendation to any of my family or friends similarly in need of legal assistance. - Heather
I researched a lot of attorneys and had met with two attorneys before speaking with Ms. Johnson and retaining her. I was facing serious charges that could not be on my record, due to my job and was really scared. I felt hopeless & thought my life was ruined...until I found Ms. Johnson... - A criminal defense client (drug case)

Lauren K. Johnson was my saving grace. I naively thought you were innocent until proven guilty. However, I soon discovered that CPS and family court does not see things that way... - Mrs. G, a CPS client
Thank you Lauren for your help and support in a very scary, bad time in my life! You were a ray of sunshine in a very dark place. I didn't have to step foot in a court room once, Lauren was there for me... - JB A criminal client
