Robbery

Robbery is forcibly stealing something from another person. A serious form of theft, robbery involves the use of physical force, threats or intimidation. All robberies are felonies in New York.

First-, Second- And Third-Degree Robbery

The charges and potential consequences for robbery become progressively more serious as the level of force and intimidation increases. If another person assists you in the robbery, if you brandish a firearm or if the incident is a carjacking, it will be charged as a second-degree robbery. First-degree robberies result in serious bodily harm to the victim or involve a deadly weapon among other circumstances.

Conviction for a robbery or any other violent crime means that your entire sentence must be served in prison. Robbery can be classified as a violent crime. For this reason, one convicted of a violent robbery could face more severe punishment.
