Robbery Vs. Burglary
Often, popular culture confuses the terms robbery and burglary. In Pennsylvania, these are two very distinct offenses. While burglary requires the unlawful entry into a building, robbery simply entails the use of force or threat of force in the occurrence of a theft. The central key to any robbery is the notion of force. At Marinaro Law, we can carefully examine your situation and provide honest answers and clear direction regarding your case.
Robbery requires either the use or threat of force to take another person’s property. Whether that force results in bodily injury or serious bodily injury can significantly change the penalties that follow a conviction. These penalties can include jail time, fines, restitution, community service, or probation. As your lawyer, it is our goal to limit your exposure to these consequences and move you toward a beneficial resolution in the most efficient manner possible. We often negotiate with the prosecutor’s office to reach a plea agreement or reduction in charges. Contact us today to discuss your situation in greater detail.
