General Criminal Defense Information

Topic: Robbery Criminal Defense

Robbery is the criminal 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 misdemeanor 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 non-deadly 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 imprisonment for a term of years not exceeding life imprisonment.

Robbery and Aggravated Robbery charges are serious crimes, which are aggressively prosecuted. Being violent crimes, these crimes are subject to the Federal Three Strikes Law, and Florida's 10-20-life firearm law (775.08) which mandates:

  • A minimum 10 year prison term for certain felonies, or attempted felonies in which the offender possesses a firearm or destructive device
  • A minimum 20 year prison term when the firearm is discharged
  • A minimum 25 years to LIFE if someone is injured or killed
  • A minimum 3 year prison term for possession of a firearm by a felon
  • The minimum prison term is to be served consecutively to any other term of imprisonment imposed.

When charged with any criminal offense it is important to be made fully aware of your legal rights, defense strategies, and to have aggressive, detailed, and dedicated criminal defense legal representation in your corner.
