Robbery is a serious crime that involves theft against another which includes the use of force, threats or intimidation. There are varying degrees of robbery, depending on the amount of violence used and whether a gun was used in the commission of the crime. Charges for robbery will always be filed as felonies. Robbery carries penalties of up to 6 years in prison.
Exposure to prison can be much longer if there is an allegation that a weapon was used or if the robbery was for the benefit of a criminal street gang. All robberies are counted as a “strike” crime in California. This means that anyone convicted of 3 strikes can be sentenced to life in prison.
