In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, a robbery is a theft that takes place by using force or fear against someone else. How the crime is charged is dependent upon the circumstances surrounding the crime, including the extent of harm the victim suffered from, how much force was used, and whether or not a deadly weapon was used during the commission of the robbery. Robbery can be charged as a first, second or third degree felony.
Armed robbery is the most serious type of robbery and is usually charged as a first degree felony. If you are convicted, you will likely face jail time, heavy fines, probation, community service and a permanent criminal record. If you are convicted of armed robbery, you will likely spend a significant amount of time in a state prison.
