Four young men were arrested for armed robbery and drug possession. The ringleader had a gun, and at one point, used that weapon to rob a CVS, by putting it against the back of a clerk to have her open the register.

In fact, when the ringleader pulled a gun, my client became very fearful and ran out of the store. There are a few arguments for his defense: The one that applies here is duress because the ringleader was not only threatening victims but also threatening the three other assailants.
