According to the California Penal Code, robbery is taking the personal property of another by means of force or fear. It is a serious crime that can be charged as either first degree robbery or second degree robbery. The charge can carry a conviction of approximately 5 years or more, depending on factors such as the use of a deadly weapon, or if anyone was injured or killed during the crime.
Because it can sometimes be charged as felony, robbery may also count as a “strike” against the defendant under California’s Three Strike law. Under the Three Strike law, people who have been convicted of three felonies can face extended prison sentences for up to 25 years.
