ROBBERY & BURGULARY

Proven Record

ROBBERY is the taking of money or goods in the possession of another, from his or her person or immediate presence, by force or intimidation. Acts of robbery are usually split by the legal system into different degrees of offense and these degrees will vary from state to state. If, for example, you are accused of a robbery and only used verbal threats you may fall into one category. If you are accused of using a weapon, on the other hand, you will face a more serious degree and harsher punishments.

BURGLARY is a term used to describe crimes usually reported as “breaking and entering” or “break ins.” A burglary is specifically described as the unlawful entry of a structure with the intent to commit an act of theft or some other type of felony. In most states the term “structure” refers to a physical building. The term does not usually apply to vehicles as most vehicle crimes fall under the category of larceny.
