What is Robbery?

Robbery is considered a serious criminal offense that involves the unlawful taking of another individual's property through force, threat, or intimidation. It goes beyond theft by adding an element of violence or intimidation. Under Ohio law, robbery is classified as a felony offense, and it encompasses a wide range of actions, such as using physical force, displaying a weapon, or causing fear of bodily harm in order to steal another person's belongings.

What are the Penalties for Robbery in Ohio?

In Ohio, the penalties for a robbery conviction can be severe and life-altering. The exact consequences you might face depend on factors such as the degree of robbery, any prior criminal history, and the circumstances of the case. Ohio recognizes two main degrees of robbery:

  • First-Degree Robbery: This is the most serious degree of robbery. If convicted, you may face a significant jail sentence, fines, and a mark on your criminal record that can have lasting consequences on your life.
  • Second-Degree Robbery: This degree of robbery carries slightly less severe penalties than first-degree robbery but is still a felony offense with potential jail time and fines.

Additionally, a conviction for robbery can result in mandatory minimum sentences, which means you could be required to serve a specific portion of your sentence before being considered for parole or early release. The consequences of a robbery conviction extend beyond the legal penalties, affecting your personal and professional reputation, employment prospects, and more. 

Defenses Against Robbery Charges

It's important to remember that being charged with robbery doesn't automatically mean you're guilty. Our Delaware County robbery defense attorney, Brian Jones, is ready to provide various defense strategies to challenge the prosecution's case. Some potential defenses against robbery charges include:

  • Mistaken Identity: The prosecution must provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt that you were the person who committed the robbery. If there's a chance of mistaken identity, we can work to uncover evidence that supports your innocence.
  • Lack of Intent: Robbery charges often require the prosecution to show that you had the intent to commit theft using force or intimidation. If we can demonstrate that you did not have the necessary intent, it could weaken the prosecution's case.
  • False Accusations: Sometimes, individuals are falsely accused of robbery due to misunderstandings, personal conflicts, or ulterior motives. We can investigate the circumstances of your case to uncover any evidence of false accusations.
  • Violation of Rights: If your rights were violated during the arrest, evidence collection, or interrogation process, it could result in evidence being suppressed or the case being dismissed.
