Understanding Robbery Crimes

Robbery is defined as the taking of property from someone with the use of force or by threatening the imminent use of force. Robbery is a crime with penalties that increase depending on the circumstances of the case. These circumstances are called aggravating circumstances. If you are charged with aggravated robbery, your penalties might be higher than someone who was only charged with robbery.

Aggravating circumstances include:

  • Robbing an elderly or handicapped person
  • Robbery in a daycare, care home or place of worship
  • Robbery with a deadly weapon

Armed Robbery

Armed robbery can add years to your sentence if convicted. Armed robbery is committing robbery while you are carrying a firearm. If you fired the firearm during the robbery, your sentence could carry an additional 15 years of prison time, or up to life in prison.
