Serious Penalties For Robbery And Burglary
Most robbery charges are second-degree charges. A robbery offense may become a first-degree offense if the robbery involves an attempted murder, the use of a deadly weapon, such as a gun or knife, or the intentional or attempted infliction of severe bodily injury. (N.J.S.A. 2C:15-1)
Robbery in the first degree is a felony offense in New Jersey, punishable by 10–20 years in prison. Robbery in the second degree is a felony offense in New Jersey, punishable by 5–10 years in prison.
Burglary may be a second-degree crime or a third-degree crime in New Jersey, depending on the circumstances. A second-degree crime is punishable by 5–10 years in prison, whereas a third-degree crime is punishable by 3–5 years in prison.
A person is guilty of burglary if they enter a structure without valid legal authority and for the purpose of committing a criminal offense. A burglary becomes a second-degree felony if the offender is armed with a deadly weapon or causes bodily injury to another person purposefully, knowingly or recklessly. (N.J.S.A. 2C:18-2)
Since a conviction for robbery or burglary can result in significant criminal penalties, it is critical that you contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer if you have been arrested on such charges. Let us put our experience to work for you.
