Hunsucker Legal Group has noted that Oklahoma law has a distinction between property crimes and crimes against a person. In the case of an attempted robbery, it is a crime committed by threatening a victim using a dangerous item. Even in cases where the firearm is fake or unloaded, the felony committed carries a five-year minimum sentence in prison.
The Law Offices of Adam R. Banner P.C. have stated that if the firearm or weapon used can lead the victim to believe that the threat or the firearm is real then the perpetrator will probably “face armed robbery charges.”
