Robbery is a theft offense where the offender uses force, intimidation, and/or violence to seize someone else's property with the intent to temporarily or permanently deprive them of that property.
Examples of robbery include:
Robbery is a very serious charge and is punishable by lengthy prison sentences, probation, fines and restitution to the victims.
If a gun or weapon is used during the commission of a robbery it becomes a first degree felony punishable by life in prison. If someone is convicted of robbery with a firearm, then the judge is required to impose a minimum prison sentence of 48 months and can impose additional penalties to include life in prison, life on probation, and up to a $15,000 fine.
This is a very serious crime. You can get a minimum mandatory 10 year prison sentence if you have used a firearm during a robbery.
