Robbery is a felony that carries serious penalties and repercussions. Your

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

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

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!
