Stamford teen faces several charges after attempted robbery

A teenager is often in a state of limbo. He or she is no longer a small child but they are not quite an adult and therefore, life can appear very confusing to them. Often, they act without thinking about the consequences and this can get them into trouble, should they make the wrong kinds of choices. The juvenile justice system is filled with young people who are struggling to find their identity and who may be trying to fight addiction and the influence of others.

A 17-year-old Stamford teen is facing several criminal charges after he was arrested for an alleged botched robbery attempt. Among the charges are possession of a deadly weapon, first-degree conspiracy to commit robbery and first degree criminal attempted robbery. The teen was placed into police custody after an investigation led authorities to him; it is unknown what authorities found or how they traced the attempt to the teenager.

The attempted robbery was not immediately reported to law enforcement. The information about the incident is sketchy; a person apparently was chased out of a Springdale liquor store after shooting a gun inside it. It is unknown whether the person was wearing a mask, whether they made any kind of demands, or if any threats against the clerk were made. It was revealed that the store owner thought the incident was nothing more than a joke but there was nothing said on what led them to change their mind.

With nothing taken and no real evidence at the scene, a good juvenile criminal defense attorney may be able to prove that there is nothing to tie the boy to the incident. This, in fact, may be nothing more than a case of mistaken identity.
