What are New York State Robbery Charges?
New York State currently divides robbery into three major categories: First Degree, Second Degree, and Third Degree.
Robbery in the First Degree is a class B violent felony in New York. Class B violent felonies are the most serious form of felonies and carry a 25 year maximum prison term upon conviction and a five year mandatory minimum for someone with no criminal record. Robbery in the First Degree charges require an experienced criminal defense attorney like Jason A. Steinberger.
Robbery in the Second Degree is a class C violent felony. This is the second most serious form of robbery and it carries a 15 year maximum prison term upon conviction. Robbery in the Second Degree is the type of new York Robbery charge you might be charged with if you were working together with other people to commit the robbery.
Robbery in the Third Degree is a class D non-violent felony. This is the least serious form of robbery in New York, although it still carries a maximum of 2 1/3 to 7 years in prison upon conviction. Robbery in the Third Degree is charged whenever property is focrfully taken from a person without their permission.
Loosely and generally, robbery in New York is the use of force to illegally obtain someone else's property. Depending on how much force is used (or threatened) and what is used to do the forcing, the robbery is more or less serious.
The District Attorneys Offices in New York City take robbery cases very seriously. Anyone charged with a robbery needs to take it very seriously as well.
