Experienced Attorneys for Violent Theft and Robbery Charges in Collin County

Little Elm Robbery Defense Attorneys

Under Texas law, robbery is defined as appropriating another person's property through the use of force or the threat of force. Unlike most other offenses related to theft, robbery is generally considered a crime of violence. As a result, if you are facing robbery charges and you are convicted, you could go to prison for a very long time.

At the Law Offices of Biederman & Burleson P.L.L.C., our experienced criminal defense attorneys understand how to defend against robbery-related charges in Texas. Our team has secured hundreds of trial victories and countless other favorable outcomes for our clients, including many who were charged with robbery, armed robbery, or aggravated robbery. With our background and knowledge of the law, we are equipped to help you protect your rights and your freedom.

Robbery Charges and Penalties in Texas

The offenses of burglary and robbery are often confused with one another. It is not uncommon, for example, for a homeowner or business owner to claim that they were "robbed" when, according to Texas law, they were actually the victim of burglary and theft, not robbery. Burglary refers to gaining unauthorized access to a building or vehicle with the intent to steal something, assault someone, or commit some other felony. Violence, including threats of violence, is not a required element of a burglary charge.

In order for prosecutors to convict you on robbery charges, they will need to prove that you:

  • Intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly caused someone else to suffer bodily injury while committing a theft; or
  • Intentionally or knowingly threatened or placed someone else in fear of bodily injury or death while committing a theft.

Robbery is a second-degree felony in Texas, punishable by up to 20 years in state prison and fines of up to $10,000.

Aggravated or Armed Robbery

If you are suspected of using or exhibiting a deadly weapon during the commission of a robbery, you will likely face first-degree felony charges for aggravated robbery, sometimes known as "armed robbery." Aggravated robbery charges are also possible if you are accused of causing serious bodily injury to a victim or any injury whatsoever to an elderly or disabled victim. A conviction on aggravated robbery charges could result in a prison sentence of up to 99 years.
