Robbery Defense

Robbery is the criminal act of taking of money or property from an individual or custody of another with intent to either temporarily or permanently deprive the individual or owner of the money or property by use of force, violence, assault, or instilling fear of physical harm of the victim or those associated with the victim.

If a deadly weapon is not used in the commission of the crime, it is a felony of the second degree, punishable by up to a $10,000 fine, fifteen (15) years prison and/or probation.

If in the course of committing the robbery the offender carried a nondeadly weapon, then the robbery is a felony of the first degree, punishable by up to $15,000 fine, thirty (30) years prison and/or probation.

If in the course of committing the robbery the offender carried a firearm or other deadly weapon, then the robbery is a felony of the first degree, punishable by up to life in prison.
