Robbery is a felony that carries serious penalties and repercussions. Your sentence will depend on several factors, such as your criminal record, the value of the stolen property, or if any weapon was used in the process. Other issues that will affect a case include who the victim was and if any serious or bodily injury was sustained by a non-participant.

Types of Robbery Crimes

Whether you have been wrongfully accused or were just misled in your actions, it is crucial that you take steps to protect your rights and your future. Our firm can help you understand your charges and work with you to create a strategic and strong defense.

There are several different types of robbery crime, each varying in degree of seriousness. For example, if you commit basic robbery, which is considered forcibly stealing another's property, you will face robbery in the third degree. This is still a class D felony and can seriously impact your future and reputation for years to come.

The more severe types of robbery include:

  • Robbery in the second degree: A person steals property through force and causes injury to an innocent individual in the process, or was using a firearm in the crime.
  • Robbery in the first degree: A person forcibly steals property and they, or an accomplice, cause severe injury to an innocent individual in the process. This also includes use of a deadly weapon, such as a firearm.

Both of these are felonies and could result in up to 25 years in prison in certain circumstances. You need a dedicated and zealous legal advocate behind your case! Contact our firm today to schedule a free, initial consultation.
