    Theft, Robbery & Burglary Charges

    Theft, Robbery & Burglary Defined

    Theft, larceny, and robbery are offenses that involve the unlawful taking of someone’s property. Robbery is the taking of property from another with force, whether it be a purse snatching or a gun point robbery.  Burglary is defined as the entering into one’s premises, home or business, with the intent to commit a crime inside the property.  These offenses vary in degree depending on the facts and circumstances of each case. If a deadly weapon such as a gun is used there is a mandatory minimum sentence of five (5) to ten (10) years of state incarceration required by law if convicted.  Believe it or not, the gun does not even need to be recovered to face this penalty.
