An act of robbery, similar to theft, occurs when an individual knowingly and intentionally obtains or exerts unauthorized control over the property of another, but does so with the use of force or threats.

In order to be charged as a robbery, during the course of the theft of property or assets, those involved in the alleged theft use force to overcome resistance, or the threat of force to compel compliance during the taking of or escaping with the property.

Robbery is a criminal offense which is aggressively prosecuted, and when a gun is involved is subject to Florida's 10, 20, life statute (775.087) which stipulates:

  • If convicted for pulling a gun during a crime: Mandatory minimum 10 years in prison;

  • If convicted for firing a gun during a crime: Mandatory minimum 20 years in prison;

  • If convicted of injuring or killing a victim by firing the gun during a crime: Mandatory minimum 25 years to life in prison is authorized.

To be more specific regarding criminal robbery charges:

  • A Robbery charge may involve a threat of imminent harm or the use of others to intimidate, control, or influence the victim to comply in the act of a theft.

  • Armed Robbery is when any object which may be used as a deadly weapon is used or threatened to be used in the act of a theft, which is a 1st degree felony in the State of Florida.

  • Strong-Arm Robbery, a situation where the offender used any degree of force to complete the act of theft such as a robbery by sudden snatching of property or assets. With a Strong-Armed Robbery the prosecution does not have to prove that effort beyond that was necessary to physically take the property was used, or that injury or harm was inflicted upon the victim.
