Available defenses to a robbery charge

A robbery charge carries steep penalties in most jurisdictions. In New Jersey, a person accused of robbery could face incarceration, even for a first offense. A person who is accused of robbery has a right to present a defense. Besides innocence, a few defenses that could be offered are intoxication, entrapment and duress.
