Robbery Sentencing Enhancements

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, you could face one or more of the following sentencing enhancements:

  • California's 3 Strikes Law- Robbery is considered to be a violent felony and if convicted of robbery, you will have a strike on your record per California's Three Strikes Law.
  • 10-20-Life Use a Gun and You're Done- If you used (but did not fire) a firearm during the robbery, you face ten years in prison. If you fired the gun you, face 20 years in prison. If you killed or seriously injured somebody with a gun during the robbery, you face 25-years-to-life.
  • California's Felony-Murder Rule- If during the robbery you or an accomplice accidentally murdered another person, you'll be charged with first-degree murder.
  • Great Bodily Injury- Under Penal Code (PC) 12022.7, if during the robbery, you caused another person to sustain physical injury, you could face a three to six-year state prison sentence in addition and consecutive to the sentence you received for your robbery conviction.
  • Criminal Street Gang Enhancement- If the prosecutor proves you committed the robbery "for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with any criminal street gang," you automatically face a ten-year prison sentence in addition and consecutive to your robbery penalties.
  • Loss of Right to Own or Acquire Firearms- If convicted of robbery, you'll face a lifetime firearms ban under PC 12021, "felon with a firearm." As a result, you can no longer possess, own, or purchase a firearm for life.

Client Reviews

“It was strongly recommended that I call federal defense attorney Michael L. Guisti. He had several investigators look at records and such, and my federal case was dismissed. Michael Guisti does what few attorneys can do, beat the federal government, and that is why if you’re in trouble with the government you need to call Michael Guisti right away!”

“I had everything to lose, my future, my education. Basically I did something that got me a misdemeanor, and the judge wanted to give a guilty plea. But Michael Guisti would not back down. Instead he fought for me, and now my record is clean.”

- Client on


“Back in 2003 I was facing attempted murder. My family hired Michael Guisti to represent me. He is a very good attorney.

I highly recommend anyone facing a criminal charge to see Michael Guisti.”
