      I was shattered with the overwhelming charge in my otherwise immaculate 40 years of life. While desperately browsing the internet for good attorney, I came across Mr. Blevins profile, who back then had received 5 stars rating from 50 folks. That’s an outstanding rating to trust anyone. With that background, I went to him to handle my case. Mr. Blevins met all my expectations and indeed did an incredible job & brought the case a desirable outcome for me and got my life back on track. During my interactions with him I realized that he has a ton of experiences and knows the GA law in and out. He is also very well connected within the GA law community. He is prompt & supportive and drives the case pretty well. With a great pleasure & honor, I would like endorse him with yet another 5 star. I strongly strongly strongly recommend him!read more

      I retained Mr. Blevins to represent me for a misdemeanor affray charge and he got the charges dismissed. He was very receptive, very open, available (shared his personal cell with me for any after hour questions), and effective. He communicated well and efficiently. Would certainly recommend him to everyone. Cost was very reasonable and definitely worth the value.read more

      Richard Blevins did a GREAT job for us on two cases. On one case he was able to minimize the impact of a DUI charge. He was able to get the other case dismissed after we followed his recommendations prior to our court date. He’s very knowledgeable and familiar with what needs to be done to handle your case. I highly recommend hiring him.read more

Mr. Blevins would also directly call and communicate with you to keep matters aligned and up-to-date. Listen to him, trust his advice, and do what he says as he has the expertise and confidence to tackle your case.

      Selecting an attorney is something we don’t do often and it can be an intimidating process. For me, there are 4 important questions to keep in mind: 1. How knowledgeable is the attorney and will they be able to identify all the possible options for your situation? 2. How honest and transparent will the attorney be with you on the possible outcome of your situation? 3. Will the attorney work hard and stay persistent to achieve the best possible outcome for your situation? 4. What will the legal representation cost? I can testify that Richard Blevins of Blevins & Hong is extremely knowledgeable on the law and in our case, could identify options that we didn’t even know existed. He was honest about the unlikelihood of the best outcome but was willing to work hard to try to achieve that for us at a very reasonable cost. In our case, Richard was able to make the improbable best outcome a reality. Richard’s knowledge of the law, experience in the courtroom, hard work and commitment to resolving the case in our best interest were the keys to our success. Choosing the right attorney can be a difficult decision, make the right choice and give Richard Blevins a call. You will be glad you did, I certainly am.read more

Richard and his team gave me the confidence I needed during all phases of my case. You won't find a more attentive, tenacious attorney.read more

      Had an unfortunate situation occur at the top of 2016 that surely would've followed me throughout the entirety of my professional career. Attorney Soo Hong was a true God send. Ms. Hong was professional, courteous and very knowledgeable. I was almost certain that even with legal counsel my situation could only be lessened but not totally relieved. I'm not sure how she managed but to my surprise my case was dismissed a few days ago. Even so she has still been available to answer lingering questions and help with advice. My five star rating is an understatement if you ask me. Money well spent.read more

      WHAT CONSTITUTES A ROBBERY OFFENSE IN GEORGIA?

      Robbery is a type of theft offense generally defined as taking someone’s property or money using physical force and provoking fear in the victim. The offense can be aggravated to armed robbery if the defendant used a deadly weapon or threatened to use a weapon during the crime. Robbery differs from a burglary offense in that robbery involves the presence of a victim and violence. Burglary can occur without the victim being aware or even without a victim present during the time of the offense.

      A robbery offense involves all of the following:

      • Taking money or property with the intent to steal
      • Property belonging to another person
      • The property being in the presence of the person when taken
      • Taking the property against the person’s will
      • The use of violence or intimidation during the offense

      The laws involving robbery in Georgia can be found in Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) § 16-8-40. The simple definition would be theft while using violence or a threat of violence. If you are facing charges for robbery, team up with a Marietta criminal defense lawyer from Blevins & Hong, P.C.

      PENALTIES FOR A ROBBERY OFFENSE IN COBB COUNTY, GA

      These offenses are almost always charged as a felony in the state of Georgia. For a general offense, the defendant can be facing a prison sentence between one and 20 years. This can be increased if the victim of the crime was 65 years of age or older, then the prison sentence can be between five and 20 years. When armed a harsher penalty is given due to the presence of a deadly weapon or the threat of a deadly weapon to cause fear. This type of offense is punishable by life in prison or even the death penalty in Georgia. The minimum prison sentence for armed robbery is 10 years without the possibility of early release.

      ROBBERY CHARGE DEFENSES IN GEORGIA

      The prosecutor has to prove all elements of a robbery crime before a conviction can take place. On top of that, the factors of the crime have to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. If you are able to challenge evidence or show a lack of evidence for one element of the crime, a conviction may not be supported. Some of the defenses that a skilled Marietta robbery lawyer can make on your behalf include:

      • Innocenceusing an alibi or video footage or eyewitness statements.
      • Involuntary intoxication– showing that the act was outside of the defendant’s control because of intoxication. The intoxication must have been against the defendant’s will.
      • Voluntary intoxication– some states will give a lesser charge if the defendant was intoxicated when the crime was committed. Crime involves intent to commit the crime, but while intoxicated, this intent may not be possible.
      • Entrapment– this involves the defendant being pushed into committing the crime that they normally would not have committed
      • Duress– this involves the defendant being threatened with injury or death to commit the crime.
