Robbery in Texas
The crime of robbery is defined in Texas Penal Code Section 29.01 as committing theft while “intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly” causing bodily injury to another or putting another in fear of imminent bodily harm or death.
As such, it is charged as a second-degree felony, carrying the following penalties:
- Two to 20 years in prison and/or
- A fine of up to $10,000
The crime of robbery is elevated to aggravated robbery if a deadly weapon was shown or used during the incident, the victim was someone aged 65 or older, or the victim was disabled physically, mentally, or developmentally. In this case, it is charged as a first-degree felony punishable by 5 to 99 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
Examples of robbery include carjacking, home invasion, and mugging. You can be arrested, charged, and convicted of robbery even if the crime was not completed. A robbery conviction will leave you with a permanent criminal record as a convicted felon that will likely seriously damage future prospects in terms of employment, housing, and other opportunities.
