Armed Robbery Defense
Louisiana law provides extremely lengthy prison sentences for robbery cases. Armed Robbery charges require an attorney who is both highly skilled and experienced in these types of cases. Many issues of proof are involved with robbery cases. The difference between spending up to 99 years in prison and walking out of the courtroom could simply be the amount of skill the defense attorney has at cross-examining witnesses.
Mr. Barkemeyer believes cross-examination is the center of any successful defense. He has extensively studied misidentification and has successfully tried many cases before a jury while asserting misidentification as the defense. You need serious legal representation if you have been charged with Armed Robbery.
