Robbery is defined as seizing the personal property or money of an individual or establishment without the intention of returning it. In order for this action to be considered ‘robbery’, some type of force, threat, violence or otherwise instilling of fear must be used. If deadly weapon like a gun is used in the robbery, the charge will be a first degree felony. Different from burglary, robbery typically entails the victim being injured or threatened.
An armed robbery charge should be taken very seriously as being convicted of this crime in Florida carries harsh consequences. Not only are you at risk of getting a felony on your record that counts as a ‘strike’, you will likely face serious prison time that will separate you from family, friends and freedom.
