Types of Robbery Charges in Florida

Another form of robbery, robbery by snatching, refers to unlawfully taking money or property from a person while the person was wearing the item or had the item on or attached to their body. This might include stealing a handbag, wallet, jewelry or some other item the victim might have been carrying. If the defendant was armed during the commission of the robbery, they will face second-degree felony charges. If unarmed, they will be charged with third-degree felony, which is punishable by up to five years in prison and $5,000 in fines.

Home invasion robbery refers to unlawfully entering a dwelling with the intent to steal money or property from inside the home. Home invasion robbery is a first-degree felony crime, punishable by up to 30 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.

When a person commits robbery while armed with a firearm or weapon, they will be charged with armed robbery, a first-degree felony. It doesn't matter whether or not the defendant actually used the weapon to carry out the offense. As long as the weapon was somewhere on their body or in their immediate possession during the commission of the crime, they will be charged with armed robbery. If you are convicted, you will face up to 30 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines. Furthermore, your sentence might also include probation or parole, community service, and the loss of the right to own, possess, or carry a weapon.
