Texas Robbery Laws & Penalties
Robbery is more of a violent crime, rather than a theft crime because the act of taking another person’s property involves intentionally or recklessly inflicting bodily harm on someone or threatened physical injury. This offense is a second-degree felony, punishable by a prison sentence of up to 20 years and a maximum $10,000 fine.
Common forms of robbery include:
- Home invasions
- Purse snatching
However, if the robbery offense involves the use or display of a deadly weapon and/or an elderly (at least 65 years old) or disabled individual feared for his/her life, then it becomes aggravated robbery. This type of robbery is a first-degree felony, which carries a maximum 99-year prison term and a fine of up to $10,000.
On top of a long prison sentence, having a robbery conviction on your criminal record can cause significant damage to your personal life and professional reputation. This can prevent you from getting employed, finding housing, applying for college, and taking advantage of other opportunities life has to offer.
