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.
