Theft / Robbery
Theft is defined as the wrongful taking and carrying away of another person’s personal goods, with intent to keep them forever without owner’s consent.
Depending on the value of the item(s) that were stolen, theft can be either a misdemeanor or felony.
Theft/Robbery with the value over $1,00,000 is considered a first degree B felony; over $50,000 is a second degree C felony; over $3,000 a third degree D felony; over $1,000 or involving a credit card, a fourth degree E felony.
Robbery is the act of taking someones property while in their presence through use of force.
Most robberies are violent, and can often times end in harm or death to the victim. If a weapon is used or the victim suffers harm, robbery can also be classified as “aggravated” and the punishment can be even worse.
