What Is Robbery?
Most people understand that robbery is a theft crime, but many don’t understand the specifics of robbery charges, even some folks who are facing these charges. Robbery is more than a simple theft crime. It also involves use of violence or the fear of violence. This can be distinguished from a burglary which involves taking another’s property but does not involve any force or threat of bodily harm.
Robbery involves enhanced penalties compared to other theft crimes, and the penalties are increasingly severe depending on factors like the use of dangerous weapons, the use of actual force, actual harm committed against the victim and related factors.
