How Robbery Is Defined Under Florida Statute § 812.13

Per Florida Statute § 812.13, robbery is defined as taking another person’s money or property with intent to temporarily or permanently deprive them of that property, while also using force, violence, assault or fear to carry out the crime. If a firearm or deadly weapon was used during the robbery, you could be charged with a first-degree felony. If a weapon was not used, you could be charged with a felony of the second degree.

If you are convicted of robbery in Florida, you could face:

  • Armed Robbery: life in prison and up to $10,000 in fines
  • Robbery: up to 15 years in prison and $10,000 in fines

What Is “Robbery by Sudden Snatching?”

Per Florida Statute § 812.131, you could be charged with the crime of “robbery by sudden snatching” if you take another person’s money or property with intent to temporarily or permanently deprive them of it, and, during the course of the robbery, the victim becomes aware of the taking. It must be shown that you used unnecessary force to take the property and that there was resistance offered by the victim and/or they were injured during the robbery.

If a firearm or deadly weapon was used during the robbery by sudden snatching, you could be charged with a felony of the second degree—which is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. If a weapon was not used during the robbery by sudden snatching, you could be charged with a felony of the third degree—which is punishable by up to five years in prison and $5,000 in fines. It is highly recommended that you speak to a Fort Lauderdale criminal lawyer as soon as you have been arrested and charged with any of these crimes.
