Theft vs. Robbery

Theft crimes involve the stealing of property. Robbery is a type of theft crime in which property is stolen from an individual through force, violence, the threat of violence, or intimidation. These cases are taken very seriously, and prosecutors pursue these cases aggressively. Because of the presence of violence, robbery charges are classified as felonies and feature significant penalties.

Common types of theft cases include:

  • Petit larceny
  • Grand larceny
  • Robbery
  • Armed robbery
  • Burglary

Petit larceny involves situations in which the stolen property is valued under $1,000 and is a misdemeanor charge. Grand larceny involves the theft of property over $1,000 and is a felony charge. Burglary may be charged when someone breaks into a residence or business to commit a theft crime.

Penalties for Robbery

There are three degrees in which robbery can be charged in New York. First degree robbery is the most severe, but all degrees are felony charges. The circumstances of your case will determine how your case is charged.

Penalties for robbery include:

  • 10 to 25 years in jail for first degree robbery
  • 7 to 10 years in jail for second degree robbery
  • 2 to 7 years in jail for third degree robbery
  • Significant fines
  • Probation

Some aspects can aggravate or elevate your robbery charges. For example, if the alleged perpetrator is armed with a deadly weapon, they may face first degree charges. Other elements that can aggravate charges include the presence of an accomplice or when someone is injured during the crime.

Similarly, if a vehicle is stolen, such as in a carjacking, your charges may be elevated to a second degree charge. Your defense attorney will help you understand the charges brought against you and can guide your defense accordingly.
