Theft crimes that are committed directly against another person are among the more serious theft allegations. While robbery does involve the deliberate and willful taking of another's property, it must also include at least one of the following factors:
Standard robbery charges will result in a severity 5, person felony. When robbery is committed by a person using a dangerous weapon or when it results in bodily harm to a victim, aggravated robbery charges will be prosecuted. As a severity level 3, person felony, aggravated robbery is extremely serious. The maximum prison sentence for a standard robbery conviction is just over 11 years. For aggravated robbery, maximum terms of imprisonment can be as high as 20 years.
