Houston Aggravated Robbery Defense


Aggravated Robbery Defense

Aggravated Robbery is a very serious felony offense. It is a first degree felony and carries a range of punishment from 5 years to Life in prison.

Houston Criminal Attorney James (Jim) Sullivan has represented many clients accused of aggravated robbery. In fact, his second felony trial in the early 1990s involved a client accused of committing an aggravated robbery
right across the street from the South Houston Police Department. His client's car was left behind, and the SHPD police chief testified that he positively identified his client as being one of those who
ran from the scene.  As the client was a felony habitual and on parole, he could not testify on his own behalf. Despite those difficult circumstances, his attorney persuaded the jury to find his client Not Guilty.  He then represented him at the parole hearing
and kept his client on parole.
