Robbery is defined as the forcible theft of property. Robbery charges are very serious and require several elements:

  • The theft of another person’s property
  • The use of force or intimidatino in the theft of the property
  • The lack of the owner’s consent to take possession of the property
  • The intent to steal the property

Punishment for robbery is often prison time, and may range from less than a year to 25 years. The wide range of punishment varies based on the degree of severity with each element in a robbery charge. Robbery charges may also include other charges, such as assault or weapons violations, and may become overwhelming very quickly.

Experienced Suffolk County Grand Larceny Defense Attorney

In New York, grand larceny refers to theft of amounts of $1,000 or more. Any property taken that is valued over $1,000 will elevate the charges to grand larceny, which is a much more serious criminal charge.

Often, our criminal defense attorneys are able to reduce such charges to a noncriminal charge; however, in such cases, the accused needs to make restitution by paying the person whose property was taken.

Grand larceny is usually distinguished from embezzlement and false pretenses in that the actual taking of the property is accomplished unlawfully and without the victim’s consent, and along with the taking there must be a carrying-off. It is also distinguished from burglary in that the theft does not necessarily involve unlawful breaking and entering.
