Robbery Definitions & Penalties in Florida

Unlike most other theft crimes, robbery is considered especially serious because it implies an element of violence. Florida Statute 812.13 defines robbery as the theft of another person "when in the course of the taking there is the use of force, violence, assault, or putting in fear." Robbery is divided into two different distinctions, organized by the crime's perceived severity.

Robbery is defined in Florida as:

  • Second Degree Robbery: charged when there is no use or carrying of firearms or other weapons. This is considered a second degree felony, punishable up to 15 years in prison and fines not more than $10,000.
  • First Degree Robbery: charged when the accused was carrying or used firearms or other weapons. This is considered a first degree felony and punishable up to life in prison.

These, however, are maximum penalties that, with the proper representation, can be countered, argued down, or even altogether be avoided. The first step is contacting us at Longwell Lawyers today.
