What Is the Difference Between Robbery & Burglary?

Robbery is a unique crime, apart from burglary or theft, because it involves the presence of a victim during the actual act of stealing and some level of or threat of force. What separates armed robbery from many other theft crimes is the use of force, violence, assault or placing a person in fear while depriving them of their property.

If a firearm is used, 10-20-Life may be applicable. If you and your friend rob someone and your friend are armed, then you could also be charged with armed robbery under the principal theory.

By what is 10-20-life?

Under 10-20-Life, there is no chance of probation and no gain time. It is day-for-day without a chance for parole. Ten years for being armed, 20 years for firing the gun, and 25 to Life if someone is injured.

What could my possible sentence be for armed robbery or burglary?

The sentence an individual receives depends on many factors including prior criminal history, what kind of weapon was used if there is a history of violent offenses, how much the stolen property was worth and whether or not the victim was injured.

If an armed robbery is committed by an individual while they have possession of a firearm or a deadly weapon then the minimum prison sentence will be 10 years.

If a firearm is discharged there is a mandatory minimum 20-year prison sentence. If someone is injured or killed during the course of armed robbery the prison sentence is a minimum of 25 years and a maximum of a life sentence.

Being charged with armed robbery will undoubtedly have a lasting effect on an individual if they are found guilty.

Attorney Daniel Fernandez My daughter was facing a few issues that was going to effect her for a very long time. I did not know which direction to turn or what to do. I googled 5 star attorney's and Mr. Fernandez's name displayed. I called his office and spoke to his paralegal Austin. He was very kind, understanding and gave me peace of mind just by speaking to me. I then met Mr. Fernandez shortly thereafter. This Attorney is very kind, compassionate, understanding and truly cares about his clients. His proven results were simply phenomenal. He basically saved my daughter from going away for a very long time instead she is going to receive some medical treatment and soon released with a short period of supervision. Afterwards Mr. Fernandez sat down with me and explained the out come and also has a plan for her moving forward. I know that each situation is different however this attorney not only has proven results he cares and looks for cures for his clients. If your in need of an attorney for any situation I suggest that you call Attorney Daniel Fernandez. I assure you that you will not be disappointed. -----Original Message-----read more
