How is robbery defined in Florida?
Theft crimes, like robbery and burglary, can start blending together and
leave you confused about the offense that you have actually been charged
with. However, the state clarifies what robbery is with two specific differentiating factors.
Robbery must include both of the following:
- The robber takes something from the victim’s “person or presence”
- The robber does so by way of violence or force
The first aspect means that the victim is present when the crime was committed.
The second can include verbal threats, physical force, or causing the
victim to face serious bodily injury. Depending on the offense, you could
be charged with first or second degree robbery. Penalties can include
incarceration, restitution to the victim, and community service.
