Understanding Robbery Charges in Pennsylvania

Under Pennsylvania law, robbery consists of taking the property of others through the use of force. Any type of force, threat of force, or coercion used can result in a charge of robbery as opposed to theft. Even if the force is minor, you may still be charged with robbery.

Robbery is charged as a third-degree felony which is punishable by up to 7 years in prison. If bodily injury is inflicted on the victim or if fear of bodily injury occurs, it is generally charged as a second-degree felony, which carries a sentence of up to 10 years in prison. Finally, if serious bodily injury or fear of serious bodily injury is carried out during the incident, the charge will be a first-degree felony, carrying a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

In any criminal case where you are facing the possibility of incarceration, it is to your advantage to engage the services of a qualified criminal defense attorney who has the knowhow, skills, and familiarity with the court systems to give you the best chance of a favorable outcome.
