California Penal Code sections 211 through 215 define the parameters of robbery. Robbery is the felonious taking personal property in the possession of another from his person or immediate presence, against his will and accomplished by means of force or fear.
The requisite fear may be of:
First degree robbery, under certain circumstances, can carry a state prison sentence of up to nine years, not including enhancements. Second-degree robbery convictions carry a penalty of up to five years in a California prison. Moreover, any robbery constitutes a “violent felony” under California’s Three Strikes Law and can lead to a sentence of 25 years to life.
As a prosecutor, our lawyer was assigned to a team in the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office, and was responsible for the prosecution of robbery. While there, our attorney tried several robbery cases at the adult and juvenile level. We have the level of resources and knowledge you need on your side when you are facing the consequences of a crime of this nature.
