Robbery 1st Degree, Armed Criminal Action Charges Reduced. Distribution charge Dismissed.
A Franklin County man was charged with Robbery in the First Degree and Armed Criminal Action for allegedly robbing a drug dealer at gunpoint. He was also charged with Distribution of a Controlled Substance for an unrelated arrest. Based on issues with the credibility of the witnesses, we were able to persuade the prosecutor to give him probation on reduced charges and dismiss the distribution charge altogether.
