A Robbery occurs when an individual or group of people takes money or other property which may be the subject of larceny from the person or custody of another, with intent to either permanently or temporarily deprive the person or the owner of the money or other property, when in the course of the taking there is the use of force, violence, assault, or putting in fear.

Additional criminal offenses may be charged in addition to a Charge of Robbery. An act shall be deemed “in the course of committing the robbery” if additional criminal acts occur in an attempt to commit robbery or in flight after the attempt or commission, or if the additional criminal acts occur either prior to, contemporaneous with, or subsequent to the taking of the property and if other criminal offenses and the act of taking constitute a continuous series of acts or events.

  • Robbery in the First Degree: 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 imprisonment for a term of years not exceeding life imprisonment.
  • Robbery in the Second Degree: If in the course of committing the robbery the offender carried no firearm, deadly weapon, or other weapon, then the robbery is a felony of the second degree, punishable by up to a $10,000 fine, fifteen (15) years prison and/or probation.
  • Robbery by sudden snatching: is the taking of money or other property from the victim’s person, with intent to permanently or temporarily deprive the victim or the owner of the money or other property, when, in the course of the taking, the victim was or became aware of the taking.

  • Home-Invasion Robbery: is any robbery that occurs when the offender enters a dwelling with the intent to commit a robbery, and does commit a robbery of the occupants therein. If in the course of committing the home-invasion robbery the person carries a firearm or other deadly weapon, the person commits a felony of the first degree, punishable by imprisonment for a term of years not exceeding life imprisonment.
