Texas Robbery Charges
The charge of robbery in Texas includes any instance of using threats or the use of force to take someone's property. This can occur in a store, someone's home or any location. Like burglary, robbery is a 2nd degree felony offense. If a weapon is used or if anyone is injured (aggravated robbery), charges can be raised to first degree felony.
The charges of a first degree felony versus a second degree felony are as follows:
- A second degree robbery conviction can result in 20 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
- A first degree felony conviction can result in up to 99 years in prison as well as a $10,000 fine.
Fighting Back to Retain Your Freedom
Prosecutors are tough on robbery crimes and will seek the harshest penalties and punishments possible. Repeat offenders or those violating their parole may get extremely harsh punishment. This is why you should make sure you have a Dallas robbery lawyer on your side that strongly believes in your rights and works hard to develop a defense strategy to get the charges against you dismissed or reduced.
