Like burglary, robbery is a theft offense. Unlike burglary, however, the nature of robbery involves intimidation, force and violence during the theft of money, property or other goods from another person. Robbery can be charged as 1st or 2nd degree crimes and penalties can include fines and imprisonment for up to 20 years. With this in mind, you need to contact a lawyer who can take immediate steps to protect your legal rights in criminal defense cases.
Aggravated Robbery Could Mean Life in Prison
The confrontational nature of robbery can include assault, violence and even death. In many cases, a weapon is used in the theft of the victim's money, property or other goods. If a robbery involves the use of a deadly weapon and/or if it results in serious bodily harm to the victim or others, offenders could be charged with the much more serious charge of aggravated robbery, a 1st degree felony. If the offender commits robbery on a senior citizen or a victim who is disabled, the charge of aggravated robbery could also apply. The punishment for aggravated robbery is a large fine and incarceration for life.
