Robbery

Unlike larceny or burglary crimes that are considered theft offenses, robbery is classified as a violent crime because these types of offenses involve the presence of victims and acts or threats of violence. Robbery is a felony offense that can result in severe penalties.

Prosecutors will aggressively pursue maximum punishments in these types of cases. Aggravating factors such as the use of a deadly weapon during the commission of a robbery can result in additional penalties.
