You didn't indicate what degree of robbery or what degree or type of assault.  At any rate, these are serious charges and considering that there are 11 counts against you, you are more than likely facing jail time unless the charges are dropped and/or reduced.

Since this is your first offense that will help, but you need to get an attorney to represent you.

If you  don't have any money call legal aid or the public defender.
