What Is Robbery?
Robbery is the act of taking something from someone else through the use of force, fear, or intimidation. Robbery charges can arise in a variety of situations, including at a bank, convenience store, or home invasion. Robbery is considered a violent crime, and it is a felony offense. If you are convicted of robbery, you could face years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
What Are the Penalties for Robbery?
Robbery is a third-degree felony in Texas, which means it is punishable by two to 10 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines. However, if you use a deadly weapon in the commission of a robbery, you could face second-degree felony charges, which are punishable by two to 20 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
If you are convicted of robbery, you will likely be required to pay restitution to the victim. Restitution is money that you will be required to pay to the victim for any damage or loss that you caused. Restitution can be a significant amount of money, depending on the situation. For example, if you held a store owner at gunpoint and stole $2,000 in cash, you could be required to pay the full $2,000 in restitution.
