Olathe Robbery Lawyer
What Is Robbery?
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.
- Property was taken from a person or from their immediate presence, or
- Force or the threat of bodily harm was used
Standard robbery charges will result in a severity 5, person felony in Kansas. The maximum prison sentence is just over 11 years.
What Is Aggravated Robbery?
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 - maximum terms of imprisonment can be as high as 20 years.

What Is the Difference Between Robbery and Burglary?
While robbery and burglary charges are often considered the same, these crimes are classified as separate offenses with differing elements. Robbery involves taking property directly from another party and there is an element or use of violence while perpetrating the offense. While burglary involves entering a property illegally with the intent to steal or commit another crime. Robbery is considered a more serious charge with more severe penalties.
