Can I fight and Win Against a Robbery Charge in Court?

Yes, it is very possible to challenge the facts of the case based on the evidence against you.

It is also possible to get the charges reduced down to a misdemeanor theft charge, if evidence of robbery is not very strong. It is very possible for a robbery case to be “overcharged”, when a robbery should really be a theft charge, or be reduced from a felony 2 to a felony 3.
