Gas Station Robbery Charge Withdrawn


CC: s.344 – Armed Robbery


My client admitted to police that she helped her boyfriend to rob a gas station at knifepoint. She scoped out the location in advance and provided information about the number of employees, etc. Her boyfriend wore a a black hoodie, bandana, sunglasses and gloves, while he robbed the gas station, using a large hunting knife. He got away with cash and cigarettes. Both of them were arrested the next day.


I negotiated for my client’s charge to be diverted out of the criminal justice system and into the Extra-Judicial Sanctions program. Upon successfully completing a number of community service hours, her charge was withdrawn. No criminal record.
