Understanding Your Robbery Charges

Robbery is classified into two different categories, first and second degree. These classifications are based on the events surrounding an alleged robbery. First degree robbery, as the weightier offense, can only be charged if the crime occurs under a specific set of circumstances.

First degree robberies must fulfill one of the following criteria:

  • Robbing a person who is operating any sort of vehicle or transportation device
  • Robbing any person who is in or on vehicle
  • Robbing someone inside a house or inhabited premises
  • Robbing someone who has just used an ATM

Second degree robberies consist of everything that does not fulfill any of the criteria listed above. Consequences can range from extended prison sentences and expensive fines to minimal jail time and fines. Do not risk a conviction for these serious charges; work with a lawyer who has experience with theft charges and will provide the dedicated defense you need to see these allegations eliminated or dismissed.
