Robbery Charges & Juvenile Crimes

Defending Minors Against Serious Criminal Allegations

Robbery is one of the most serious criminal allegations individuals of any age can face. Considered a type of violent crime and theft crime, robbery poses extremely harsh penalties and numerous long-term repercussions. Under Florida Statutes § 812.13, robbery can be prosecuted when an individual takes money or property directly from another person's immediate possession and when the act is committed with the use of force, violence, assault, or threats that produce fear. Robbery charges may also vary depending on the circumstances involved, including any of the following offenses:

  • Second-degree felony when robbery is committed without the use of a firearm or weapon
  • First-degree felony when robbery is committed with the use of a weapon
  • First-degree felony when robbery is committed with the use of a firearm or other deadly weapon
  • Robbery by sudden snatching (§ 812.131) – a robbery offense characterized by a victim becoming "aware of the taking"
  • Carjacking (§812.133) – a robbery offense involving the theft of a motor vehicle directly from a person's possession using force, threats, violence, or assault
  • Home-invasion robbery (§812.135) – robbery of an inhabited dwelling in which an individual commits a robbery of the home's occupants

In the event that victims were harmed or injured in the commission of a robbery, prosecutors may also push for heightened charges and penalties. Regardless of the particularities involved in a robbery case, all parents whose child has been charged with a robbery offense must be aware that penalties are incredibly severe. Possible terms of detention in a juvenile detention facility, probation, fines, court-ordered classes, and the limitations that come with having such a serious conviction on one's record can negatively impact your child's future. If prosecutors find reason to charge your son or daughter as an adult, the stakes become even higher.
