Does the Amount Matter for Robbery Charge?

The amount taken in a robbery committed in Kentucky is irrelevant to the charge.  Whether the defendant was attempting to take a cell phone, $5 or $10,000 the amount of the theft is irrelevant to the charge of robbery. If trying to take any money you use physical force, it is a robbery 2nd.  Robbery is a serious felony offense and anyone charged with this crime should be looking for the best possible attorney to represent them throughout the proceedings.  If you have an attorney, please make sure that you have discussed potential resolution and possible plea deals to the case as well as trial strategy and defenses available. Following is the Kentucky Revised Statute (KRS) definition of Robbery 2nd:

515.030 Robbery in the second degree. (1) A person is guilty of robbery in the second degree when, in the course of committing theft, he uses or threatens the immediate use of physical force upon another person with intent to accomplish the theft. (2) Robbery in the second degree is a Class C felony.

Class C felonies in Kentucky are punishable by 5-10 years of incarceration. If you cause injury, use a dangerous instrument or are armed with a deadly weapon, robbery becomes a 1st degree under KRS 515.020 and is a class B felony.  Class B felonies in Kentucky are punishable by 10-20 years in prison.  Robbery 1st is also classified as a violent crime.  This classification does not permit parole until the offender has served 85% of the stated prison sentence. If you have been charged with Robbery or any other crime in Northern Kentucky counties of Campbell, Kenton or Boone, contact the Bouldin Law Firm and schedule an appointment with Michael Bouldin.  Call at 581-MIKE (859-581-6453) or email [email protected].  You can also schedule through [email protected].
