Types Of Robbery Charges In Florida
In the state of Florida, there are four elements of the crime of robbery. First, the prosecutor must show that you took the property or money without consent. Next, there must be some force or threat to get said money or property. Next, the taken property must have some value even if it’s just a few dollars. Lastly, intent to temporarily or permanently take control of this property must be proven too.
There are different types of robbery, including but not limited to home-invasion robbery, carjacking, and robbery by sudden snatching. Each type includes the same elements but has other specific requirements. Robbery without a deadly weapon is a second-degree felony with up to 15 years in prison. Robbery with a deadly weapon is a first-degree felony with a penalty of up to life in prison.
