Robbery is generally defined as the taking of property from another by use of force, violence, assault, or placing in fear. In such cases, robbery is a second-degree felony, punishable by up to 15 years’ incarceration, unless a deadly weapon is used during its commission in which case it would be classified as a first-degree felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison.

top rated Attorney Robbery By Sudden Snatching

Absent the use of force of placing another in fear to complete the theft, such conduct may qualify as “robbery by sudden snatching,” which only requires that the victim be or become aware that their property is being taken during the commission of the theft. Florida law specifically provides it is not necessary that force was used by the offender, or that the victim offered any resistance when he or she became aware a theft was being committed in order to prosecute for this offense. Without a deadly weapon, robbery by sudden snatching is a third-degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison, whereas it is a second-degree felony if a deadly weapon is used.

phillips, hunt & walker Home-Invasion Robbery

The most severe form of robbery is “home-invasion robbery,” which occurs when a person commits a robbery inside another person’s home after entering the home for that purpose. If a home-invasion robbery is committed with a non-deadly weapon or with no weapon at all, it is a first-degree felony. However, if a deadly weapon is used it is a crime that is punishable by life in prison.
