It is important for you to understand that an arrest is not a conviction. With the help of a lawyer, it is possible to defend against a crime like robbery. In order to do so, you must understand that the prosecution's job is to prove to the judge and jury that you stole the property of another person from his or her possession, against his or her will and by using actual force or threats of physical harm. The prosecution must also show that by stealing the property of another person, your intention was deprive him or her of the item permanently.
Penalties for Robbery in California
The criminal justice system does not tolerate crimes like robbery. Individuals who commit violent theft crimes often receive swift penalties. In California, robbery is a "Three Strikes" offense. (If you are convicted of three violent crimes, you receive a mandatory 25 year prison sentence.)
Most people who hear the word robbery think of purse snatchings. However, robbery can be any type of immediate threat by use of force or criminal threats with intent to steal. If charged with robbery in California, you face the following penalties:
First-degree robbery - If police accuse you of robbing a commercial vehicle, home or other type of inhabited building, or people using an ATM machine, you are charged with first degree robbery. Under the California penal code, first degree robbery is the most serious form of robbery and is punishable by up to nine years in prison.
Second-degree robbery - Any robbery that takes place beyond the circumstances mentioned in first degree robbery is defined by law as second degree robbery. If convicted, you face up to five years in prison.
