What Does a Robbery Charge Mean for Me?
It only takes a threat, or a perceived threat, and a theft could be charged as robbery. Someone who is simply sticking their fingers in a pocket and is thought to be holding a gun could be accused of threatening violence. Even if no one was hurt, you could be facing the steep penalties that usually accompany a violent crime. The penalties for robbery depend on the specifics of your case, but on top of any fines and restitution you might have to pay, you could be sentenced to up to 9 years in prison.
