Escalating Robbery Charges & Potential Penalties
Due to the necessary application of force during an act of larceny, robbery charges in New York will be a class D felony at least. The crime can be escalated depending on the circumstances surrounding the alleged act of robbery, though.
Considerations that can increase a felony charge to a higher felony class include:
- Addition of others committing the crime.
- Extent of harm caused to the victim.
- Use or presence of a deadly weapon.
- Type of property stolen.
The penalties for a class B felony, which is the highest degree felony for any possible robbery charge, can include up to 25 years imprisonment and a fine that typically ranges up to $5,000. A court can opt to impose a fine equal to double the financial gain the defendant allegedly made through the course of the robbery, which is calculated without a set cap. For example, an act of robbery that steals a necklace that is pawned for $4,000 could result in a fine of $8,000.
