Robbery: A Felony Offense
There are two classes of burglary, robbery and theft charges. If the offense is committed without the use of weapons, or threats of violence, the offense is a 2nd degree Class B felony. If there is a weapon involved, or threats of violence, the offense will be filed as a 1st degree Class A felony with far more severe penalties. For example, a 1st degree Class A felony conviction carries a 10 - 30 year jail sentence. A 2nd degree Class B felony carries a 5 - 15 year jail sentence.

It requires the theft of property from the premises. The skilled attorneys at Sumner Law Group, LLC are ready to fight for your freedom.
