Types of Robbery in Texas

Robbery is primarily considered a theft crime, but is also regarded as a violent offense. Texas describes the crime of robbery and the related offense of aggravated robbery in Texas Penal Code Title 7, Chapter 29. Texas defines robbery offenses in the following ways:

  • Robbery: occurs when, in the process of a theft, the accused a) intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another or b) intentionally or knowingly threatens or places another in fear of imminent bodily injury or death.
  • Aggravated robbery: occurs when, in the process of a theft, the accused a) causes seriously bodily injury to another person, b) uses or exhibits a deadly weapon, or c) threatens or harms a victim who is disabled or age 65 or older.

Robbery is a second degree felony and aggravated robbery is a first degree felony. If a conviction is reached, either of these offenses can result in life-altering consequences. If you have been accused, it is absolutely critical that you choose representation that has experience handling serious charges and can employ an insider's insight on our criminal justice system. Our Houston theft lawyer is ready and capable to do both of those things in pursuit of a reduction or dismissal of your charges.
