In Florida, Robbery is the use of force or the threat of force to take someone else's property. Common types of Robbery include purse snatching, carjacking and bank robberies. Florida Statute § 812.13 Robbery is a felony that State Prosecutors take very seriously. In some situations, like for example if a firearm or deadly weapon was used in the commission of a Robbery (sometimes referred to as Aggravated or Armed Robbery) there are minimum sentences that a Judge is required by statute to impose. However, even when those minimum mandatory sentences are not in affect, a person convicted of a Robbery charge can serve anywhere from 5 years to a Life Sentence.
