California Robbery Offenses

People often say “I was robbed” whenever something is stolen from them. Robbery is a more serious crime than theft. It is classified as a violent crime even when it does not lead to physical harm. Prosecutors usually seek serious punishment for felony robbery.

According to the Office of the Attorney General, more than 53,000 robberies were reported in California during 2013 (the most recent year in which complete statistics are available). More than 15,000 resulted in arrests.

About 45% of reported robberies took place on a street or sidewalk. Another 21% occurred in a business or other commercial building, while 9% were committed in residences. Bank robberies accounted for only 1.5% of all robberies. The rest took place in different settings, including parks, schools, trains, and government buildings.

In 2013, almost half of all California robberies were committed with a weapon, and are therefore classified as armed robberies. Prosecutors like to refer to the remaining robberies as “strong-armed” robberies, which is really another way of saying “unarmed” robberies.

Almost two-thirds of armed robberies were committed with a gun. The rest involved other dangerous weapons. Knives were employed in about half of the armed robberies that did not involve a gun. Using any object as a weapon, such as a hammer or a baseball bat, can result in an armed robbery charge when the object is used to coerce the victim into surrendering property.

California defines robbery as the taking of personal property from another person, against their will, and doing so by means of force or intimidation.

It was my first time getting in trouble with the law, and I am glad I had Randy and Chris there to guide me through.
