A robbery accusation is very serious in the state of California and needs immediate attention. Robbery is the illegal taking of property from someone else’s personal possession by using violence, force or intimidation. Robbery is categorized as either aggravated robbery, armed robbery, or a simple robbery. Robbery is divided by first degree robbery or second degree robbery. First degree robbery is any robbery that takes place in an inhabited dwelling, vessel or trailer and/or used against the operator of a vehicle; it also refers to an ATM robbery or a carjacking. Second degree robbery refers to all other types of robberies. A robbery charge is typically a felony offense and carries various penalties which may include:
