What Constitutes Armed Robbery
Armed robbery is a more serious offense than robbery, though it is very similar. When the following criteria have been met, an act is considered armed robbery:
- An individual must intend to maintain control of another person’s property without that person’s consent to do so; and
- A threat of injury or actual injury to another person must have occurred during the incident; and
- A gun, or any other weapon, must have been present
It is the presence of a weapon that distinguishes armed robbery from robbery, which is a lesser charge. Since these charges are treated so seriously, it is critical that individuals charged with armed robbery seek legal representation as early in the legal process as possible.
