What is Robbery?

Robbery is a serious criminal offense in Ohio, and being convicted of robbery can have life-altering consequences. In simple terms, robbery is defined as knowingly and intentionally using force, threat, or intimidation to take property or money from another person against their will. It is important to note that robbery is different from theft, as it involves the added component of violence or the threat of violence.

There are several key elements that must be proven in a robbery case, including:

  • Intent: The prosecution must indicate that the defendant had the intent to commit robbery, which means they had the specific purpose of taking property from another person through force or intimidation.
  • Force or Threat: Robbery often involves the use of force or the threat of force. This can include physical violence, the display of a weapon, or verbal threats that create fear in the victim.
  • Taking of Property: The defendant must have actually taken property or money from the victim, even if it is only for a brief moment. The property or money taken must belong to someone else.
  • Against the Will of the Victim: The victim must not have consented to the taking of their property. If the victim willingly gives up their property, it does not constitute robbery.

What Are the Penalties for Robbery in Ohio?

The penalties for a robbery conviction in Ohio are severe and can vary depending on the circumstances of the crime. In general, robbery is classified as a second-degree felony in Ohio. However, there are factors that can elevate the offense to a first-degree felony, carrying even more significant consequences.

Penalties for Second-Degree Felony Robbery:

  • A prison sentence that can reach 2 to 8 years.
  • Fines of up to $15,000.

Penalties for First-Degree Felony Robbery:

  • A prison sentence that can reach 3 to 11 years.
  • Fines of up to $20,000.

Additionally, if a firearm is used or displayed during the commission of the robbery, the defendant may face mandatory prison time and increased penalties.
