First-Degree Robbery – Any robbery that takes place in an inhabited dwelling, including trailers, vessels and houses can be considered a first-degree robbery. Additional types of a first-degree robbery can include robbing people while they are using an ATM, robbing either the driver or passengers inside of a taxi and robberies that occur on the subways, trains and trolleys. This type of robbery with violence can carry punishments of up to 9 years in state prison.

Second-Degree Robbery – Second-degree robbery is rather broadly defined. If any robbery takes place that does not fit into the first-degree robbery as was described above, it may be a case of second-degree robbery. The prison terms may be lighter with second-degree robbery, but it still can be up to 5 years in the state prison.

What is the Penal Code for Robbery

It is also possible for the punishment to be heavier if the robbery occurred while using a weapon. If you have a weapon on your person and use it as a type of intimidation while committing the robbery, it may add up to 10 years to your prison term. If you use a firearm during the robbery and discharge it during the robbery, even if no one is hurt, it can add up to 20 years to your prison term. Carjacking is also a type of robbery and in some cases, it can result in a robbery charge of up to 9 years.

There are also other types of crimes which can be considered robbery in certain circumstances, including burglary. This would be a crime where you would enter a building or residence with the intent to commit a felony. It is classified as a felony, although it is often misunderstood. Burglary is not always associated with theft. If you enter into a building or residence with the intent to commit any type of felony, it can be considered a burglary.

Client Testimonials
Gold standard for professionalism and ethics. Extremely knowledgeable and proficient in handling complex cases. Attorney Javellana took painstaking hours building a civil case, (co-ownership/property rights) and then he presented overwhelming evidence at trial. Mr. Javellana was on point for 3 days at trial where he tactfully asserted a powerful presence in the courtroom and systematically picked apart the defendents and he was quick to respond to the dirty trickery of the defense attorney with undisputable legal arguments. As a result of Mr. Javellana's detailed and powerful representation, the opposing side had no chance. Mr. Javellana was extremely organized and detail oriented throughout. Mr. Javellana won the case across multiple points and most impressively he obtained a permanent injunction against the opposing party. Additionally, Mr. Javellana, represented me with two other cases where his professionalism and his relentless tactical drive continued with successful results. I highly recommend Mr. Javellana. J.M
