What is the Difference Between Robbery & Theft?

Although robbery and theft are similar, there are several key differences in the crimes:

  • Theft is usually done with no one around and does not typically involve the use of force, violence, or threat of violence.
  • Robbery, however, is performed in the presence of the victim and often uses force to obtain property.

What are the Penalties for Robbery?

The following are different levels of robbery crimes:

  • If a firearm or deadly weapon is used during the robbery, it is a first-degree felony.
  • Robbery with use of any other type of weapon can result in a 30 year prison term and a $10,000 penalty.
  • Robbery without the use of a weapon is a second degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in jail and a similar fine.
  • Robbery by sudden snatching is when another's property or money is stolen and the victim was or became aware carries up to 5 years in jail and up to a $5,000 in fines.
