Robbery includes armed robbery, where a weapon is used or robbery by physical force.
Robbery is a serious crime charged as a felony. This crime differs from burglary or theft in that it involves threatening or forcing another individual. Burglary involves breaking and entering with the intent to steal or commit another crime in which the defendant may never see the victim. In California, robbery is categorized as either first or second degree. First-degree robbery may be charged when robbing someone in their home, vehicle, or after using an ATM machine.
Grand theft involves stealing property valued at more than $400 and may be charged as a felony or misdemeanor, depending on the case. Petty theft is charged when the value of the goods stolen ranges between $50 and $400 and is generally charged as a misdemeanor. In these types of cases, it is to your advantage to have an attorney with negotiation skills who can minimize charges and penalties.
