What is Robbery?

Robbery, under Georgia law, is defined as the act of taking property from another person or their immediate presence by force, intimidation, or sudden snatching. Unlike theft, robbery involves confronting the victim, making it a more serious offense.

Robbery can be charged in the following circumstances:

  • Using force or the threat of force to take property from another person
  • Using force or the threat of force to prevent a person from resisting the taking of property
  • Using a deadly weapon or firearm to commit the robbery
  • Committing the robbery while wearing a mask, hood, or other type of disguise to hide identity
  • Robbing a person who is performing a lawful duty, such as a store clerk or mail carrier
  • Robbing a person who is on public transportation, such as a bus or train

What are the Penalties for Robbery in Georgia?

Robbery is considered a felony in Georgia, and the penalties can be severe. Depending on the circumstances of the offense and the presence of any aggravating factors, the penalties may include:

  • Standard Robbery:
    • Imprisonment for 1 to 20 years
  • Armed Robbery:
    • Imprisonment for 10 to 20 years
    • Life imprisonment, with or without parole
    • In extreme cases, the death penalty may be considered
  • Robbery Involving Elderly Victims:
    • Enhanced penalties due to the vulnerability of the victim

If a firearm or deadly weapon was used in the commission of the robbery, a conviction carries a minimum prison term of 10 years with a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. If a robbery involving a firearm or deadly weapon occurred at a pharmacy, then the minimum prison term is 15 years if convicted.

Defenses Against Robbery Charges

Facing a robbery charge does not mean a conviction is inevitable. Several defenses can be effectively employed to challenge the prosecution’s case:

  • Mistaken Identity: Establishing that the defendant was erroneously identified as the perpetrator.
  • Lack of Intent: Demonstrating the absence of intent to commit robbery, a requisite element of the crime.
  • Alibi: Presenting evidence of the defendant’s presence in a different location at the time of the incident.
  • Coercion or Duress: Asserting that the defendant was compelled to commit the robbery under threat of harm.
  • Insufficient Evidence: Contesting the sufficiency and reliability of the evidence proffered by the prosecution.

An experienced robbery lawyer can evaluate the specifics of your case to determine the most appropriate and effective defense strategy.
