Aggressive Modesto Criminal Defense Lawyer Skillfully Defending Clients Accused of Serious Felony Crimes
Robbery is a crime involving taking another person’s property by force or threat. While the facts underlying a robbery arrest vary widely, all robberies are considered “strikes” under the California Three Strikes law, meaning a conviction doesn’t only put you are risk of a lengthy jail term but also increases your exposure for any future arrest. If you are facing robbery charges, you need an experienced attorney who not only knows the law but is also prepared to put in the work to get you the result you are looking for. At the Law Office of Rebecka A. Monez, we have successfully handled countless robbery cases on behalf of our clients and know what it takes to beat even the toughest cases.
What Is Robbery in California?
Under Penal Code § 211, robbery is defined as “the felonious taking of personal property in the possession of another, from his person or immediate presence, and against his will, accomplished by means of force or fear.” This requires the prosecution to prove each of the following elements:
- You took personal property belonging to another person;
- You took the property in their presence;
- You did not have the owner’s permission to take the property; and
- You used “force or fear” to carry out the theft.
When it comes to the “force or fear” element, you don’t necessarily need to hurt someone or even threaten to hurt them; it’s enough to imply a threat based on your actions. For example, walking up to someone with your hand in your pocket such that it looks like you could be armed would likely be enough for prosecutors to charge you with robbery.

2023 Litigator of the Year
The American Institute of Trial Lawyers is an invitation-only professional organization composed of premier trial attorneys from each state. These attorneys exemplify the very best qualities and qualifications of an attorney. Each attorney must meet stringent qualifications as a civil or criminal trial attorney.
An attorney who is selected as a Litigator of the Year possesses the knowledge, skill, experience, and success of a seasoned litigator. Very few attorneys from each region will receive such recognition. In fact, less than .03% of attorneys will even be nominated. This recognition is given out yearly.
