Man Arrested For Robbing Three In Fort Pierce
Robbery is one of the most commonly committed crimes in the United States. In fact, the robbery rate in the United States is 146.4 per 100,000 people. The punishment for a robbery can vary greatly. People who use a weapon during their robbery will most likely get a harsher punishment. Those who are currently on probation will most likely get a harsher punishment also. The location of the crime, previous criminal record, injuring or killing the victim and the number of accomplices are some of the factors that affect the punishment for robbery.
Some people are able to get off with just a fine or probation. Others may end up spending life in prison. People who hire a Fort Pierce Robbery Lawyer have a greater chance of getting off with a lighter sentence.
Many robbers steal from multiple people before they get caught. Twenty-year old Michael Perry was one of those people. He robbed three people on Monday, March 10, 2014. The robberies occurred in the morning. The first person he robbed was Anthony Parrina, who is 37 years-old. Parrina stated that he was punched in the face before being robbed by Perry.
Perry went on to rob 34 year-old Jason Cornelius and 64 year-old Edward Kline. Both Cornelius and Kline were inside of a home while they were robbed. Cornelius stated that he was pushed into a wall and then had his wallet stolen.
Cornelius managed to get back his wallet. However, Perry beat Kline with a broom and managed to take his wallet. All three men contacted the police and gave similar descriptions of Perry. The officers were able to identify the robber shortly after they were contacted. Perry was arrested, but he did manage to punch one of the officers in the face.
