Legal Counsel for Robbery Charges in San Antonio
Committing theft while using force is known as robbery. A theft must have at least one victim to qualify as a robbery offense. If the force occurred after the theft has occurred, the theft may not be considered a robbery.
Examples of robbery could include:
Snatching a purse from someone who does not want to relinquish it
Intimidating someone to surrender his or her wallet
A normal robbery qualifies as a second-degree felony in most states.
Armed and/or Aggravated Robbery
Committing an act of theft while using force while in possession of a weapon is known as armed robbery. Armed robbery in many states is also known as aggravated robbery.
Examples of armed robbery may include:
Stealing from a bank using an assault rifle
Stealing a purse from someone by threatening with a gun
Aggravated robbery often qualifies as a first-degree felony in the eyes of the law.
